It was The Beatles who said ‘all you need is love’. They lied.
SO YOU’RE IN LOVE, NOW WHAT?
Nothing. That’s what. Just because you realize you love someone doesn’t mean you can start expecting things from them. They never asked for the affection or attention and now here you are professing some kind of irrational feeling and expecting them to take responsibility for the load. Hey, I get it. You need to tell them…just in case they feel the same. But the thing is, this is no soppy Jennifer Aniston movie…you always know if they do or they don’t so your ‘risk’ is a 1 in a million gamble and you know it. People tell other people they are in love with them for 2 reasons: 1) They know the other feels the same or 2) They’re an idiot. Saying that, there are some exceptions to the rules.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IT’S LOVE?
Yeah…how do you? I mean, just because you’re thinking about them all the time dun mean you love them. What do these thoughts consist of exactly? Are you fantasizing about fucking? That’s lust babe. Are you imagining what your kids might look like? That’s obsession. Do you want them to be happy no matter where you are left in the picture? That could be love.
WHAT IF THEY DON’T LOVE YOU BACK?
HOW MANY TIMES CAN ONE BE IN LOVE?
How long is Kanye West’s ego trip gonna go on for? Who knows! I reckon just love everyone and decide who you’re NOT gonna love instead of the other way round. Maybe.
ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE LOVED.
Some people are cunts. We know this. But most aren’t ya know? Just ’cause you burnt yourself on the stove that one time doesn’t stop you from cooking burgers now does it? Allow people in, be free and open to meet someone new, lose your ‘type’ – it’s bullshit. Strip away the baggage we pick up through our travels and you might find yourself a shiny new human.
AT THE END OF THE DAY…
We’re gonna break hearts and have our hearts broken. We’re gonna swear off love and we’re gonna celebrate it. We are going to love the wrong people and we are going to make bad decisions based on feeling.
Does any of this make sense? No? Fitting really.
