So it's true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love -E.A. Bucchianeri
Love is a painful emotion.
People think Love hurts only when it is one sided. Yes I agree love hurts when it is one sided but love also hurts when you are together and in love with one another.... how?
The more you love the more painful it is.
Yeah I agree. All is wonderful if the one you love loves you back, you might say, but I am speaking from that point as well.
When the person you over is unwell, you stress over them.
When the person you love is doing something you deem or think is dangerous or harmful (and they think they can do it ok).. it probably stresses you out more then it does them. They probably don't even break out a sweat while you age 10 years in just a matter of hours.
When the person you love betrays you.. and when I mean betray.. there is must so many ways to betray someone.. not just by having an affair with someone else. It hurts.
When the person asks you to butt out of worrying for them.. that hurts too.
When you just can't help worrying and stressing. It affects your mental health more then the other person who probably think you are just overreacting.
When you mean well and get snapped at for just that. That really hurts too.
So that's the conclusion. The more you love, the more it hurts.
