It makes us crazy. It makes reality invisible and it erases all the lines that we shouldn't cross. Because love isn't about fencing ourselves in; feeling safe, feeling sure about the future. It's about scaring the shit out of every nerve in our body, but pushing forward anyway. Because all the fighting and all the tears and all the uncertainty is worth it. And it's a hell of a lot better, than being 100% happy without someone to show us that there is a world of a difference between feeling 'happy' and feeling whole.
A very close friend who means a lot to me wrote this in a blog recently and they attributed it to someone else who actually wrote it but I think it's a very true statement in relation to love.
Simply happiness is ok, but sharing happiness and feeling whole makes us truly happy.
