Just love me!
Just LOVE me, like a fat kid loves cake!
Just LOVE me, like a fat kid loves cake!
Have you ever felt like that? When I first heard that, it hit me like a
ton of bricks. To be in LOVE like that or to be loved like that would
just rule forever. Is that not what we are all yearning for? Do we not
seek out LOVE from the second we breathe as an infant? We search our
parents eyes for that look of LOVE. We smile because we know it makes
them smile with the LOVE that they feel for us.
To LOVE or not to LOVE? This is the question we all ponder through out
Why do we yearn to be someones everything? We want nothing more than to
feel like the LOVE of one`s life. We spend our lives looking for that
special person that will make our world seem like a dream. We want to
feel safe and secure in our choice of partners. But how do we really know
that this one is "the one" we will LOVE unconditionally forever? How do
we know that this choice of LOVE will not break our heart? How do we know
that this LOVE will LOVE us when the chips are down and we are not that
perfect person that they fell in LOVE with?
Well I hate to sound like a wet blanket here on a cold night, but nothing
is guaranteed. Life promises us nothing. We make our lives what they are,
right at this moment. In matters of the heart we gamble, and as I have
said before, to give LOVE is to risk losing LOVE. That is just another
one of those bleary facts. Like rain storms and snowfalls, we have no
control over anything that nature has given to us. We can only do our
best with what we have. I have spoken before about gifts. Well, LOVE is a
gift when it is given and when it is received. It does not happen because
we say we want it to, or when we like a person and say "LOVE me". HA. I
am sure that almost everyone out there will agree to that. I am also
certain that the word "Stalker" comes from that notion.
LOVE can be a very scary risk. "Have you ever been in love? Horrible
isn't it! It makes you so vulnerable. It opens you up, totally exposing
your heart only to let someone get inside you and twist things up so
tight, you can barely breathe. You build up defenses, you build an entire
suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then that person, not
seeming any different from any other person, wanders into your lonely
life. You give them your heart. They didn't ask for it. They did
something one day, like kiss you or smile your way, and then your life
isn't your own any more. LOVE takes your heart hostage. LOVE swarms
inside you. LOVE devours your entire being and leaves you crying in the
darkness. With the simple phrase, "lets just be friends", it turns into a
knife, cutting its way into your heart. The pain is like no other you
have ever felt nor ever want to feel again. Not just in your imagination,
not just in the mind. It's like losing a part of who you are, or rather
who you were. That my friends is one reason we are so careful to not make
the wrong LOVE choice. I know reading this totally makes one never want
to do that. But we do, over and over again. Why?
Is it such a deep needed desire that we really have no control? Is cupids
arrow that strong? YES on both counts.
LOVE is one of the most powerful sensations we will ever endure in our
LOVE knows no limit to its power, no end to its trust, no loss of its
LOVE can overpower anything.
LOVE stays up, when all else has falls down.
LOVE is felt when one grasps another's hand.
LOVE is as much of an object as an obsession. Everybody wants it and
everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it. Those who do, will cherish
it, get lost in it, and among all, will never, ever forget it.
LOVE does not waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead it
creates a perfect love.
LOVE is somewhat like an hourglass, the heart fills up on one side as
the brain empties the other.
LOVE is admiring ones heart: as admiration is the love of ones mind.
LOVE is with you when you least deserve it, because that's when you
really need it.
These are a few thoughts that I have that tell me what LOVE is and why
When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete
us.We must understand that until we admit that while our partner can add
sweet dimensions to our lives, we alone are the only ones that can bring
that same fulfillment to ourselves. No one is responsible for our
Some people fall into a pattern of needing that NEWNESS LOVE in their
relationships. These people will go from one relationship to another
forever, never getting off that roller coaster of failure. They never
understand that LOVE has stages. LOVE at first is so full of mystery and
excitement. Then we move into becoming comfortable with one another and
blending our ways to continue to strengthen our LOVE for one another. We
continue to grow with each other, adding newness to each other by growing
in one world, but as two people. Our years together build our road to our
destiny of spending our lives and enduring tribulations as one. If you
want life to always be a bed of roses, then you best grow a few gardens,
because the roses will only get there if you grow them or bring them to
your life. In other words sweet people of LOVE, your LOVE and passion is
only what you make it. If you ignore it or get too busy to feed it, it
will die or fade away. It's like any other living breathing thing. LOVE
needs to be treated with respect and treated like the special gift that
Another thing we must be careful of is to let those we love be perfectly
themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image, otherwise LOVE is
only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. LOVE like you mean it,
it is the only true way to let your LOVE for one another grow stronger
and continue to be all powerful and wonderful.
Relationships ask us to contemplate "forever" as a way of life.
It is a world without end of our own creation.

The purpose of life is to discover your gift.
The work of life is to develop it.
The meaning of life is to give your gift away.
