Turned it around?!!&nbsp; Ya all around upsidedown, heck it was all going ok till I found that true love which i desired so much.&nbsp; And the beautiful thing is it was shared both ways.&nbsp; Only one problem, true love is something that will be a constant battle. Always being tested as if testing just to make sure its true, and when it does prevail thru thick and thin you know that it is love.&nbsp; It is like a roller coaster ride, but hey what would be the fun of a level ride with no excitement, right?!&nbsp; Love does hurt oh yes it does.&nbsp; Without the pain true love cannot exist for it is the pain that makes you realize it is true.&nbsp; So my life was turned around out of control with constant forces of nature blasting us over and over with struggles and tests, seemingly trying to keep us from enjoying something so blissful, or mayby doing its job of keeping things well balanced.&nbsp; But in the end, regardless of what hardships or struggles it caused, &nbsp;I will always have that Love, the experience of true love, the euphoric highs and the literal chest hurting heart of the lows.&nbsp; Love is one thing you do get to keep with you when you die, and nobody or nothing can ever take that away.&nbsp; No matter the struggles all you need is love, love is all you need!</p>

<p>
I suppose so</p>

<p>
Yes.&nbsp;&nbsp; It's doing it right now, while my compatriots entice me to ingest ingredients that will help me season through the nite-festival of DREAMLAND MURDERS.</p>

<p>
Love turns everything around...upside down...... and topsy turvey...</p>
<p>
Love is a roller coaster ride so it is inevitable that everything gets turned around!</p>
<p>
And yes i have been there a number of time over my short 50 yrs of life!</p>

<p>
Na I need to love myself before that will happen</p>

<p>
it took awhile after it was gone to realize it was ever around, too late for the one more try mess, too late for the late night guess... its all gone and now they are a pest</p>

<p>
when I was at my lowest I found my long lost sister and it turned my world around to find real love and a sense of identity at last</p>

<p>
No and i won't hold my breath.</p>

<strong>&nbsp;&nbsp; WHAT' S&nbsp; ...."L&nbsp; O&nbsp; V&nbsp; E"....Got To Do With it??</strong></p>

<p>
AT "THIS" MOMENT- the day "before" valentines' day 2/10-</p>
<p>
I WOULD "BE" Surprised and Grateful...IF "it DID" right now.</p>

<p>
yes, but not always in a good way.&nbsp; I got married young and was divorced two years later.&nbsp; I then married again 3 years later.&nbsp; Soon found out that the man that I was in love with was in love with himself.&nbsp; We were perfectly happy but with a little just a little encouragement from someone else he was ready to stray.&nbsp; Which meant that it was not love after all.&nbsp; Been in a couple of serious relationships since that have taught me a lot about myself.&nbsp; I totally lose who I am and give up the things that I want in orderthat d that I do not have to give up who I am and what I want for someone else in order to hold on to a relationship that I should not.&nbsp; Through this last relationship is when I really learned all of this.&nbsp; I am not even ready to spend any time with anyone else at the present time because it hurts to much to put myself out there and have the hope that I will be loved for who I am and what I stand for.&nbsp; Is it too much to ask for anyone to be honest and not change who they are once they get comfortable and think that they have you where they want you?&nbsp; Is it too much to ask to be able to be who you are without having to hide who you really are?&nbsp; I think right now that a relationship is too hard.&nbsp; You should not have to work at it so hard.&nbsp; It should all come easy.&nbsp; It should not be so complicated.&nbsp; Until I find that relationship that is not complicated then I think I would rater be alone</p>

<p>
never!</p>

<p>
Yup. So Many Times, That I've Lost Count.</p>

<p>
Everyday.</p>
<p>
But not necessarily romantic love. I have learned to appreciate love in all its forms. The love I have and receive from my friends has turned my life into something I want to live instead of endure.</p>

<p>
yes</p>

<p>
<strong>Yes! it has, i have been with my ''soul mate'' for just over 30yrs!! my husband! :-) He's spoiled me and his children, he's ''simply the best'' :-) </strong></p>

<p>
why would love turn something around?&nbsp; isn't that what ropes and pullys and all that stuff you learn about in school is for?&nbsp; The fact that you can put everything about you on to one person and not care, and then finally&nbsp;when you get dumped , you blaim everyone that its their fault and that you can't believe that they would do such a thing and blah, blah, blah.&nbsp; Love is a drug that makes you feel funny on the inside and can make you do stuff that you don't want to do.&nbsp; As everyone says, don't do drugs.</p>

<p>
I had my usual share of worries, frustrations, expectations, disappointments,..... well, the whole works!</p>
<p>
One fine day, I began to think, why fight, why resist, why not go along.&nbsp; Of course, things did not turn around in a second.</p>
<p>
It took time, years actually.</p>
<p>
But, now, I love life for what it is, I take things as they come, I accept people as they are.</p>
<p>
Lo, I have few enemies, I can relate to everybody, I do try to change and enforce and fight where necessary.</p>
<p>
But, I know, when to stop, where to draw the line, when to yield, compromise and accept.</p>
<p>
Now, I am happy, and so are my near and dear ones. Sometimes, things work out better this way.</p>

<p>
Love lifes cruelest joke, we need it to survive and are always looking for it, yet when we find it we struggle to keep it and some how mess it all up. Love is filled with such sweetness it has us in it's grasp before we even now what's going on and&nbsp;our world is turned upside down, I have experienced the awesome beauty and the ugly side of love but thru it all I wouldn't change it Because when it was awesome it&nbsp;was magical.&nbsp;</p>

<p>
Once</p>

<p>
Yes, I lost my way in life once, I did what I did until love came to town</p>

<p>
cant say that ive ever been in love with a decent enough man to turn my life around.....im still waiting</p>

<p>
for me i think the belief that god is directing my life i feel there is a plan and purpose and whatever happens, happens.</p>

<p>
Yes. I grew up in a house where there were no hugs or cuddles ..children were basically to be seen and not heard.&nbsp; My father had alcohol problems which may have played a role in how things were ...don't make waves - don't add more problems ..it was pretty cold and sad&nbsp; looking back.</p>
<p>
When I became a mother myself I did not have good or any parenting skills or awareness.&nbsp; From day one I thought the woman sharing a room at the hospital was a bit wacko with constantly&nbsp;talking to her newborn.&nbsp; Although I can hardly believe it now, back then I thought to myself how stupid that woman was..."crap - its just a baby!"</p>
<p>
I had given birth to twin girls and tho it was kind of cool,&nbsp; I really had no idea of the adventure and new life&nbsp;that was&nbsp;opening up.&nbsp; People were so kind and thoughtful&nbsp;to me,&nbsp;many of them&nbsp;random strangers,&nbsp; and they would also stop and talk to my babies, open doors or say kind things.&nbsp; Through my babies responding it was a whole new world of awareness and love I had missed in my own childhood.&nbsp; I learned to be a better mother observing other&nbsp;young mothers&nbsp;at play groups.&nbsp; Mother love&nbsp;&nbsp; Parent Love&nbsp; One cannot be selfish and happy as a mother,&nbsp; Its a learning process&nbsp;in loving.&nbsp; I hugged, cuddled and talked to my kids - I learned to love more and more as they grew up.&nbsp; It was the biggest life lesson ever for me, and my grown children and to this day we always greet with hugs.&nbsp; The are happy with their partners and I think they have grown up kinder and more in tune.&nbsp; It makes for a more positive happy world.</p>

<p>
Yes. And not every experience I had with it was not good.</p>

<p>
Yep.&nbsp; Met her on a blind date when I was 19 and 2 1/2 years later we married and&nbsp;remain married going on 42 years.&nbsp; We endured all of life's joys and sufferings&nbsp;together. Still born daughter.&nbsp; Adopted the next daughter at 6 days old.&nbsp; Then had two biological sons.&nbsp; Then adopted the adopted daughter's daughter at two months.&nbsp;Now up to six grand children.</p>
<p>
Graduated Tech school together.&nbsp; Served in church together.&nbsp; Traveled together.&nbsp; Cried over lost relatives together.&nbsp;</p>
<p>
&nbsp;</p>
<p>
Yes, love turned it around for us.</p>

<p>
Oh yes; and then entered threw the back door ;)</p>

<p>
I learned to love yesterday and will continue to share this love today, tomorrow and beyond :)</p>

<p>
Love has turned my World upside down, still waiting to see if that's good or bad</p>

<p>
nope, never been in love and never want to be in love.</p>

<p>
Yes.</p>
<p>
A long time ago,</p>
<p>
and I'm hoping that it will once again enter my life,</p>
<p>
allowing me to share and grow with passion,&nbsp;</p>
<p>
to&nbsp;fulfill the dreams and desires of another,</p>
<p>
to be understood and gain understanding</p>
<p>
to embrace a&nbsp;wonderful side of the human experience&nbsp;once more.</p>
<p>
Yesterday love was absent,</p>
<p>
and&nbsp;we where&nbsp;unable to&nbsp;taste the sweet rewarding lust&nbsp;of being loved.</p>
<p>
&nbsp;Tomorrow may&nbsp;once more bring love's embrace as our soul's rejoice!</p>

<p>
Oh yes. Love is bewitching</p>

<p>
Yes, and never in a good way.&nbsp;</p>

<p>
yes .</p>

<p>
It did it was wonderful and then life got in the way and it disappeared.</p>

<p>
Yes.&nbsp; Jesus' love.</p>

<p>
Yes it has.&nbsp; The love I felt/feel for my daughter when she was born was overpowering and incredibly life changing.&nbsp; It gave me a different perspective on life to see this little wonder in my hands that&nbsp;I was now responsible for; to teach, to love, to nurture and help grow.&nbsp; Although I struggle in other areas in my life with anxiety and depression, there is one thing that I know for sure and without a doubt or hesitation; I love being a mother to my little girl!&nbsp; Her smile picks my mood up instantly.&nbsp; Even when she's cross and being naughty I find patience and a smile.&nbsp; Her birth and the love that we have together is life changing and most definately has turned it all around for me.&nbsp;</p>

<p>
It did, when she turned down a request from another friend and chose to go with me, instead.</p>

<p>
Yes. First I was normal then I went crazy! Love is a funny thing they say, but I'm not laughing!</p>

<p>
I met someone and we started going out, and it was great and amazing and wonderful and so easy being with her.&nbsp; My life became so great I couldn't believe it.</p>
