My name is blank and I have fallen victim to love
So have you…
We all have fallen victim to this feeling
Why do we love?
Why do we look for love?
Love is an emotion just like anything else right?
We don’t go out and look for sadness or anger
So why love?
Love is a special kind of feeling
The butterflies you get in your stomach
The intimate touch of another
The warm feeling of strength and security
We want to feel appreciated
But can you truly love someone without loving yourself? The reason we love is because we find things in other people that we can relate to
But love comes from within first
When you learn to love yourself
You learn to love others equally
But the question remains why love?
Love connects your mind, body, and soul
In ways that the brain can’t
Your mind can tell you one thing
And your heart another
The mind can deceive you
But your heart is golden
Real love will always be there
And the real love starts with yourself
You can tell what’s real and fake
Or you won’t learn to love anyone else
