I Would Do Anything For Love

Have you ever stopped to think why love is a four letter word? What price do we pay for love? I've experienced all of the following in the name of love.

Alienated a son
Was abused physically, mentally and emotionally
Lost my individual identity
Relinquished dreams
Settled for less
Ignored problems
Fueled self-insecurities
Compromised my beliefs
Rationalized self and others behavior
Jeopardized others and my own well being
Isolated myself from friends and family
Have taken on others issues.

I'm constantly learning that you can love someone and at the same time "let go" of that person. For the most important love of all is to love one's self.

Do something nice for yourself today.

What have you done for love?

You know.....I really have given my whole life for love. For my husband...my children...my grandchildren....and my friends. I have absolutely no regrets...with the exception of the fact that love can be exhausting at times....but always rewarding.

Angel...love is a wonderful thing. It can also be very painful. I guess we all live and learn....but never stop loving.{=}

As of right now, I am with angel on this one (minus the grandkids). But in a past relationship I had given up my self esteem. The bastard had taken taht from me. I believed that I did love him at the time and believed every word that came out of his mouth. To this day, I am still trying to get all of the self esteem back. I have come a long way, but I still have more to go.

I would do anything for love, Oh I would do anything for love, but I won't do that...

Sorry karaoke flashback! For my friends and family, I would do anything, suffer anything and sacrifice anything because I love them with all of my heart. I've only allowed myself to truly fall in love once and in return I experienced love, fear, doubt, entrapment, suffocation, confusion, pain, brainwashing and panic. I also experienced being on the receiving end of obsession, jealousy, rage, and psychosis. Yeah, don't think I'll be doing that again No honestly, occasionally I do miss that feeling of being in love but for now, it's not worth the risk of everything else it can possibly bring with it. I'm getting there slowly, (baby steps) but I'm just not ready for that 4 letter word to even enter into my vocabulary, much less my life

Love doesn't have to be a bad thing...It is just that, we as humans usually take something so wonderful and fuck it all up. Stick with lust for now..!! {=}
