Does Love mean suffering ? What is your definition of Love ?
What is that all the religions, teach us about L O V E?
As per Bob Morley’s Wisdom, Everybody is going to hurt you.
I think he is correct because we expect too much from the ones ,we love ( a bit selfish attitude ,I say ) and in turn feel hurt if they are not up to our expectation. (again a selfish motive)
“To love is to suffer.
To avoid suffering one must not love.
But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer.
To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy.
Therefore, to be happy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.” — Woody Allen
Are you confused ? Is too much happiness also a suffering ?
I know you don’t have an answer.Neither I have !
But my guess is…. don’t love too much or too little,and at the same time don’t not expect anything in return.Don’t presume or assume.
Is this not strange that the very word ‘L O V E’ makes some of us
experience ‘Heaven’ and some other ‘Hell’
How can L O V E have dual power…. ie adorable & destructive ?
What is your take ? Please share your thoughts .Have you ever suffered because of LOVE?
