Love hurts, said a woman to me the other day. No, it does not, I told her, and she disagreed. We talked about love and what love it and mostly is not.
I told her that love in its pure form never hurt, love is just love. It has become something people say but very rarely think about. What is love?
What I see is that love is used to explain other emotions and actions.
Love does not hurt. When you love someone, and they do not love you back, then it hurts, but that is the feeling of love not being present. Not love.
Love does not hurt. When you trust and love someone, and they let you down, then betrayal hurt, not love.
Love does not hurt. When someone does not want you, it hurts, not the love you have for them, the rejection. Not love.
Love does not hurt. When you love someone with all you being and lose them to illness or an accident, it hurts. Not the love. Losing someone because they pass on is not love that hurts. It is nowhere to channel the love now they are gone. It is too much love with nowhere to go. Not love.
Love does not hurt. When you see other people having success and wish you had it too, then it is not love that hurts. It is the dreams you wish would come true that hurt, not love.
What do you need ?
Love is on so many levels. It can be physical, emotional, spiritual, it can be so many things, but in the end, it is only love. Love heals; it does not hurt. I have seen people in pain crying out that love has hurt them, but it is simple, not true.
What you need in life is more love. Love for yourself, for others, for mother earth, and all she gives. Love for animals and love for life.
I listen to BTS for several reasons, one being they have a love myself message in all they do.
One of the songs, called Idol, has the most fantastic chorus. “I can’t stop lovin’ myself.” It is such a strong message.
I hope you understand that you were made from love. Take love in and love yourself first.
