Life is confusing

In the past 10 months I have learnt that:

– Love is laughter and a lot of cuddles.

– Love is unnaturally long spans of time just spent looking into each others’ eyes.

– Love is expressing yourself in the most raw form and have the other person understand then still choose to stay.

– Love is interest in the same things. Or support for the other person in pursuing his/her interests.

– Love is learning about the world through another person’s eyes.

– Love is beautiful

– Love is lots of fun.

But in the past 2 months I also learnt that:

– Love is overrated.

– It doesn’t have to be once-in-a-lifetime special like I thought.

– Trust is the most essential thing in love. If it is lost once, your love will forever be tainted.

– Love is easy. But sustaining love is hard.

– Love is preferably logistics working right for two people.

– Love goes as easily as it comes.

– Love is knowing when to let go.

– Love is being grateful for all the happy memories.

And yesterday I learnt that:

– Through love, you learn.

– Love may feel elusive, but if you opened your heart (and your eyes) there are so many opportunities out there to love and be loved.

– If you recover from the heartbreak from a previous love, there are many opportunities in the future to love again.

And I believe the next time it is possible to love just as hard.
