love/loneliness …,which hurts more
Everyone says love hurts, but that isn’t true. Loneliness hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again.
Love is the ultimate exercise in trust. It means surrendering your fears and giving someone the power to destroy you but the trust in them not to. It isn’t love that hurts. The loss of love hurts. Someone building emotional walls of distance hurts. Losing the potential to love hurts.But love is the only thing in this world that doesn’t hurt. Which is why when we find it, we must do everything we can to protect it.
