I've been a follower of the leLove blog for quite some time now, and am always thrilled at the things that are posted there. There are some really good stories and really interesting things that somehow always seem to weave their way into my life in an uncanny way. This particular post caught my eye; and it poses the question, about what is enough. Read it first, then continue.
When it comes to relationships, perhaps so many of us have a tendency to make things way more complicated than they need be. If you like someone and they like you, why can't that be enough? Why can't that allow us to see past all other things regardless of what they are? Be they past or present, is love enough to conquer all past mishaps, mistakes, and regrets?
I think that is a question that we all might have trouble answering. It's hard to say if you haven't been in that position. In our minds, whether we realize it or not I think we all have a certain perception of the perfect person for us. They are everything that we want and everything that we need, and are compassionate and loving and make sacrifices for us. Perhaps these are simple generalizations, and yet something that we most likely can agree on.
And yet, there will always be things that creep up on you. There will be new stories unveiled that may bother you. There will be things difficult to discuss and things that you have trouble accepting. And at that point, the question remains: is love enough to look past everything that might bother you in the past, present and future? Should it be?
Just something to think about. Share your thoughts, if you like.
