Does Love mean suffering ? What is your definition of Love ?

Does love mean suffering ?
“The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.”

Bob Marley

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?

  1. Ola
    A vida só existe pela nossa relação
    com os outros e com o mundo.
    Não existe vida isolada.
    Assim mesmo para sermos feliz
    ou infeliz dependemos dos
    Um abraço


    1. Olá. Obrigado. Concordo plenamente com você.A vida acontece apenas quando relacionamos o nosso amor para os outros.Eu só desejo que não subestimamos o poder do amor.Amo os outros como você desejou ser amado.Um abraçar meu amigo.Boa noite em India.


  2. It all depends on the person. I think that we tend to think too highly of ourselves, myself included. So, when it comes to love, we are already set up to fail, since we cast love as we cast doubt.

    For me love is simply that. Extend to others what you desire for yourself. If you love something, set it free in the hopes that you will be set free as well.
