I Wish That Love Was Enough

    Me Too

    There are times that I wish love was enough. I wish I could breathe, eat, and spend love. No love is never enough, but it is crucial. Everything else without love is colorless and empty.

    Complete Package

    Love is wonderful but it needs to be mutual. I think that was the main issue with the X is that although he said he loved me he didn't know how to show it. Also, we were/are different in so many ways and that added more stress. Not being able to communicate did us in and his...

    But

    In this, I don't mean romantic love alone.  I mean that love for humanity is not enough, there also needs to be empathy, forgiveness and understanding.  Bitterness of historical acts needs to be eradicated and what 'side' or 'nationality' a person has. ...

    Broken

    "It is not you but me," he said as he patted the top of my head. He walked by like this bit of news was supposed to comfort me. As he leaves the room I study myself in the mirror. I knew I was more critical of myself than anybody ever could be. Searching my green eyes for what is...

    If Love Wold Keep Us Together

    Love is never enough to keep two people together.  You may think that if you give with all your heart and soul, if you pour yourself into your relationship that you can mold it into the perfect love that will last a life time.  But you can't.  There are so many...

    It Used To Be Enough

    Love used to be enough until you broke it on me. You gave it away to someone else behind my back. I once believed in unconditional and forever love between us (but I haven't given up either whether in the future that will be between us or not). I miss the times when love was...

    But Sometimes, I Guess, It Just Isn't

    Well, what can I say? Sometimes it just isn't. I don't know why that is so, it just is. I'm learning to live with it. I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks, especially WHY love isn't always enough. Peace.

    Love Is Always Enough If... the Feeling Is Mutual And....

    You have a real working knowledge of what real love is, but most of us don't know what that is. I say it depends on what you call Love. I have found that Love is enough when you are not asking someone to consume you 24/7 or you are trying to consume them 24/7. The Love most...

    Don't I Know It

    I finally realized it with my first and only love. We had been together for a about 3 and a half years and we had so much love for each other. We had our arguments like everyone does but the love was always there. We both made a couple of mistakes along the way (thankfully i don...

    I'm among those who like to go on about how love should be enough. But I know that in this crazy world we live in, love isn't enough. Still, it's nice to daydream.
