In Love, But Love Is Such a Small Word...

I truly and deeply feel that love is a small word, that is is thrown around so very much that most people just say it to say it! Why what is the purpose of telling someone you love them if you do not show it. I am deeply in love for the first time in my life, but it hurts. For all the good reasons it hurt. I know that it is true, love. The kind that you don't see, just feel. The kind that makes every emotion in your body screem out, wanting the world to know how important that they are. When you are in love, do deep, so true, it is so hard not to feel scared. Especially if you have been hurt in the past. You have to get past the past and look towards the future. Someone taught me there are no guarentee's in life. This person is the most intellegent, inspirational person I know, and they are right. The only guarentee in life is yourself. You are the one who has to take ownership for all the things that you do. I personally feel this to be true, and yet scary at the same time. As you do want some kind of guarentee. Even love is not a guarentee. It is a feeling, a hope, a desire, a want, a need and so much more. Is is normal to be afraid that perhaps even though you love this person, and you do want to spend your life walking down the same path with the same goals and dreams to be afraid that perhaps your not good enough, or worthy of their love in return? Any suggestions or advice?

Sounded like I was reading my own heart. I am not articulate, and that makes things even worse for me as it's so hart to express myself with words. I am in love, soo deep in it it hurts. Yes, I feel as though my partner is not as deep as I am. And yes, I am scared for my heart but I can only hope that he sees the shadow of this beautiful picture of our future iv painted.

LADY DOVE, JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE!! IT DOESEN'T MATTER IF YOU ARE BETTER THAN HIM, OR HE IS BETTER THAN YOU! JUST LOOK, YOU WILL FIND. THERE WAS A INTERVIEW ON TV. SHERE? (SONY SHERE?), A LONG TIME AGO.) ANYWAY, THIS HAPPENED JUST LAST WEEK. <br />
SHE HAS A LOT OF MONEY,BUT SHE SAID--I DON'T CARE WHERE HE WORKS--AS LONG AS WE LOVE EACHOTHER.

Don't be afraid. Just love. That's all you can do...I remember once what my father told me about love. He said..."Remember Son, LOVE is PAIN". And you know, he's got a good point. All I can do is love and wait for it to return to me one day. It really hurts to think about the ones that you've loved and not recieving love in return. It's the lonliest feeling in the world. The butterflies in the stomach thing gets people in trouble alot of times. That's your soul telling you to be carefull with this one. How many times I hear about how when she met him she had butterflies in her stomach. They got married and he ends up cheating on her or losing interest. It seems to be a cycle of some sort. It's like the angels are shaking you a little to warn you, "NOW think about this one...I know...Because they warned me about my latest love interest. Now I feel naked and alone after she let me down. But everything happens for a reason. The greater good will succumb one day. Hope that helps a little.
