The “Forever” Fallacy

As someone who has been in and out of love so many times, I am often ridiculed about decisions regarding relationships by people. These people are mostly in the form of your parents, friends who are fond of ‘philosophising’ and ofcourse, hypocrites who change all rules for themselves 🙂

I just have one sentence for such people.

Get out of your delusions and get a life.

The commonest prevailing illusion is that love lasts forever. It is as good as saying, once a candle is lit, it remains lit forever. People fall in and out of love all the times and make the most impossible combinations. People you think you would never feel for will take your life by storm and make you think about them like no one else.  And when that moment comes along, people are unnerved from themselves. They become disgraceful, crazy, and absent-minded. Someone sober will worry about things going badly. Not the one who loves and is loved. Even for the moment. J

Folks, who keep saying that their love will remain forever, are mostly deceiving themselves.  When the one you love ceases to love you back, what causes an intended show-off of sadness is not love, but a bruised ego.

Most of us are extremely lonely and have this particular feeling of “being completely alone in this world”. It is this need for filling our inner void that we seek someone who would share our solitude.  And it isn’t wrong to allow people to make you happy. And vice versa.

Love passes, love dies and it hurts. And once the hurt subsides, one is ready to love again. To stretch the time frame is our option, but to ridicule someone else’s time frame is mere hypocrisy.

Some people can spend their entire lives longing for love. I am not one of them. And if you think, it isn’t right…You ought to go back to the Shakespearean era.

As for folks like me, who are less interested in the “why” and more interested in the “while” here’s a little something for you,

“Love calls – everywhere and always.
We’re sky bound.
Are you coming?”
