Love means -Happiness or Suffering or both?


“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 suffering?

I know you don’t have an answer. Neither I have!

Is this not strange that the very word ‘L O V E’ makes some of us experience ‘Heaven’ and some other


How can L O V E have dual power…. i.e. adorable & destructive?

What is your take?

Have you ever suffered because of LOVE?

And you think it’s the biggest culprit??

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. 👌👌👌👌✒📷🌹 both…I’m sure. Life loves balance … and it always adds on both sides. It was as if a candle was burning at both ends. We can only appreciate everything after lessons of protein storms in our own brains … and finally … what would be left of paradise without hell? Nothing.


    1. True.
      Every body talks of love.
      Even they talk of ‘love’ of different kinds.
      The point is…
      whatever the type of ‘Love’ may be… will be accompanied by some ‘suffering’
      And this is the way of life!
      Thank you my friend for your thoughts


    1. Thank you my friend for your thoughts.
      I agree with you.
      Regarding your question, why the most caring and loving people suffer maximum…I guess these people are taken for granted and insulted by others.
      A simple human psychology.
      The more you care, the more you love….the more you suffer because the others always think that you are dependent on them.
      I am not sure I could answer you correctly.


    1. “Suffering is not God’s desire for us, but it occurs in the process of life. Suffering is not given to teach us something, but through it we may learn. Suffering is not given to teach others something, but through it they may learn. Suffering is not given to punish us, but sometimes it is the consequence of our sin or poor judgment. Suffering does not occur because our faith is weak, but through it our faith may be strengthened. God does not depend on human suffering to achieve his purposes, but sometimes through suffering his purposes are achieved. Suffering can either destroy us, or it can add meaning to our life.3”
