Love isn't just a four-letter word...

"...Though I tried and failed at finding any door
I must have thought that there was nothing more absurd
Than that love is just a four-letter word..." ♫

------Bob Dylan's "Love is just a four-letter word"


Love is NOT just another four-letter word. It’s something much more complex than that. I hate when people don’t value the true meaning of love and what it really means to be in love. Some people dare to use such powerful word like it’s worth nothing. They say “I love you” almost with the same relevance as if they were saying “I’m hungry” or “I’m sleepy.”

I could say that I even find pathetic when someone tells you overnight or after a couple of dates that he/she LOVES you. Nobody…I mean…really…NOBODY falls suddenly in love overnight. I can believe that there could be an attraction or affinity, but between initial attraction and love there is an abysmal jump.

There are tons of people like those who are daily walking on the streets misusing the word “love”. I think they believe that just because they say “I love you” the fastest they can and to anybody that crosses their path, it is magically going to become true. It’s not just about who says it the fastest. It’s about truly feeling it.

However, the ones that without any remorse say that they love someone (even if it’s not true) are not the only ones who treat love as another simple four-letter word. There are also those who after having gone thru difficult, disappointing, or stormy relationships decide to stop believing in love.

They have become so afraid of finding themselves again in a vulnerable position that they decide to hide behind the love-is-for-fools mask.

Yes, it’s true……..Love is not a piece of cake, and it’s not like a fairy tale. You’re probably going to knock on a lot of doors, and I guarantee that you’re going to close a bunch of doors at others too. You may have had a couple of not-so-great experiences before, but even those are not enough reasons to miss out on the wonderful feeling of being in love.

….that is why I still believe in LOVE ♥
