Love and tears

I haven’t posted on the board in a long while.  Someone I love got some devastating news and we all were reeling from the pain.  What is it about love that can hurt so much?  It doesn’t seem like it should be that way.  I guess when you give your heart to someone, you expect them to treat it as the precious gift it is.  When that doesn’t happen, it makes you doubt yourself.  I can only imagine the pain he is going through.  Time heals all wounds, but this one seems like eternity may not be enough.

I’m sure a brighter day is around the corner.  Hopefully he will heal, and trust someone enough to give his heart away again.  I don’t think you can really appreciate love until you do.  I also think that when someone gives you their heart, you shouldn’t look around for another one until you return the one you stole.  Maybe it’s the “me” generation, but it sure seems selfish and self centered, not to mention immoral.  One day I hope I can get over the bitterness.  One day.  For now, I’m not that zen.
