Do you love yourself? If yes, then how free are you? Are you absolutely free? Society, laws, rules, schools, people’s expectations, social expectations..etc. considering all this are you free?
Love is an emotion which is viable to change, still we expect two people to be in love forever. When people say in movies, “I am out of love. I am sorry.” I think what they meant was my intellectual interests has changed drastically and you are not able to satisfy me. Because, love is an emotion and it changes all the time. It can be there and it won’t be there and again you develop the same emotions.
Love and sex are two different things, love not necessarily leads to sex. If in the movies they say, “I am out of love, we cannot have sex.” Oh wait! They don’t say that…they just have sex and regret it later on for dramatic effects. Anyways, that would be because of physical incompatibility.
Love is way complicated than to set it free without any boundaries. It is not simple. Many have tried to simplify it by saying, “just love”. You cannot just do that in this society which is unequal, it is not a breeding ground for free love. If you go against all this, and still believe in the concept, “If you love them, set them free” I challenge you to do so and be sane.
We say we love by heart and I believe we do that by brain. We choose our partner which suits the requirements of our brain. For the world, a couple’s love could be seen as a beautiful love story but only the couple knows what they have been through together. The days they spent together must have brought them a million emotions, probably more than that.
Now the question is, what’s the harm in simplifying a complicated emotion like love?
Well, some things are meant to be complicated. Like your every other emotion, you cannot just decode why you feel the way you feel now. It would be a madhouse if you would try to decode each on of them.
