It do be like that sometimes!

69/100

We all need love. When it comes to love, we all are end consumers. People say it’s love what we live for. We seek love, in any form.

So did she.

He gave her attention, she loved it. He pampered her, she cherished it. He complimented her, she accepted it. He was like an addiction, she was addicted. He was the flame, she was the moth. He demanded, she refused. He changed, she ignored. He was rude, she ignored. He fought, she made up. She confronted, he shouted. She was upset, he ignored. She stopped talking, he didn’t care. End of story. When life isn’t all roses, we hold on to the only rose we see with all our might. Even if it is full of thorns. Only to realise later, it isn’t even ours. We can’t see the truth because the lie soothed us or maybe we don’t want to see it. We choose to ignore the obvious signs of it all being a deceit with a hope that it might turn good at some point. It’s true, sometimes addiction, even to humans, is so strong that being aware that it is wrong, bad, not worth it, we still can’t shun it.

  1. the key word love is at odds with is consumer… one can’t buy it and gifts don’t equate to it… true enough, love, has long been commodified… how alienated are we from ourselves, truely ourselves… if only we knew where to start… I dialled back zero to start the journey again…. not easy btw…

      • as an experiment, if you are up for it, try saying this to yourself… if you do I’ll share my experience after and it’s source
        ‘divine mother of all life, take me to that place so deep inside, deep inside your womb, where I can know nothing and be reborn anew’

        also have a Google at Gabor Mate
        and his colleagues too…. there is something in the air, I find…

  2. People show “love” in all sorts of ways. What is love to one mean not necessarily be love to another. I do think we seek many things in our lives and of course acceptance or love is one of them. Solitude can be loved to one. As well as a comfortable chair could be love to another. But we must express ourselves to each other for us to understand what love may be teach one of us.

  3. Oh wow, Pooja! Great post.

    Love comes in many forms and unfortunately, it can be toxic too. But the ones in such a kind of relationship never realise it until it’s too late.
