You are awesome…and you suck! This post is pretty self-explanatory, but also an extremely misunderstood and difficult subject to discuss. Love is a many-splendored thing, except when it’s not, so I took a stab at making the misunderstood more understood…or at least easier to misunderstand!
Happiness can be elusive, but when you find it, it can make you feel better than ever. On the flip side, when you don’t feel happy, you would give anything to get back to that happy place. There have been plenty of times in my life when I have been full of happiness, and can’t imagine feeling any other way; but, there are inevitably the tough times that make you wonder how you’ll go on.
I’ve been happy, and I’ve been sad, perfectly natural human emotions; I’ve learned that many times you need to do things for yourself in order to find that happiness, rather than waiting for others to do for you. Having a job you love, having your life (kind of) together, and having supportive friends and family are very important, but happiness, true love and success are all pieces of the puzzle that lead to inner peace. To paraphrase a quote from Beauty and the Beast; “A beast can treat you better than a prince.” To me, that means that there is someone out there for everyone, and you should look past the superficial to find real beauty and love. There is something that everyone is looking for in life, and what is right for one person isn’t right for the next. I think love is the same way. One thing is for sure; love is messy, complicated and difficult to navigate. But it is also beautiful, and while everyone has their own path to take in life, I believe that in the end, if it is meant to be, it will be.
Love makes you feel good, it hurts, and it can confuse you, sometimes all at the same time. It is the only emotion that doesn’t follow some kind of mold, which is why it is so difficult to navigate. You can love someone and be completely certain of why, and you can love without that certainty. Dear love, you are awesome…and you suck!
Until Next Time,
