With Valentine's day quickly approaching us, I only thought it would be appropriate to write something along the lines of love. Well, rather why I think so many people are scared of love.
Let me start by disclaiming that I'm not perfect either and I myself have run away from situations that could've resulted in me falling in love. The simple reason for why I run, I'm scared.
Let's be honest with ourselves. No, you're not too busy for a relationship, you're just too scared and don't want to have to commit to anyone. You'd prefer to have every part of the relationship other than the title.
No, the fact that you just got out of a relationship does not entitle you to a free pass to play with other people's hearts. If you're truly trying to get over someone why don't you spend some time focusing on yourself rather than seeing a new person every other day.
It's not healthy.
Our dating culture is not healthy at all. We make such dumb decisions and wonder why older generations frown upon us.
We're too scared to fall in love and truly get to know others. We rely on dating apps to meet other people, instead of making meaningful conversation with people in person. We wonder why so many of us are so socially awkward but maybe it's because we rely fully on our phones to do the talking for us.
Whoever said love is supposed to be smooth and easy is a liar.
Love is whatever you make of it. Sure there will always be rough patches because nothing in this life is perfect.
I wish we could open our eyes more and see what's right in front of us sometimes. Maybe the cute guy at the coffee shop with a book in his hand has some substance and can hold a meaningful conversation rather than the guy on your phone who only hits you up when he needs you. Maybe if you looked away from your phone for two seconds you'd see someone looking at you in a way that you want to be looked at, with love.
Maybe if we take a minute to reevaluate our lives then maybe we'll find a way to let love in our lives again.
If our grandparents could fall in love, so can we.
If our parents can, we can too.
There is really no excuse other than that we're too scared and hurt to find a way to let love in.
