“Grief is the price we pay for love.” Queen Elizabeth
I came across this quote recently and I thought it had teeth.
Traditionally, when we think of love it’s hearts and valentine’s, sunset walks on the beach, intertwined arms sipping beverages, weddings and tears of joy.
When you think about love, what’s your first thought? Are you a OMG I’m in love sort of person? Or are you pragmatic? Perhaps pessimistic?
In reality, love is a multi faceted little emotion.
Imagine that when you’re in love, you get to roll a die every day:
Hasn’t the average person who admits to having loved feel all these emotions? Isn’t love a combination of good and bad?
Doesn’t loving someone bring on the whole spectrum of reactions?
If you truly love someone, doesn’t it mean that at some point you will grieve?
Is love a happily ever after fairy tale, or is it impossible for love to end happily?
As it’s write my blog Thursday, I ask you for your opinion:
Is it possible to love without grief?
If we had two dice, what would be six more love feelings that we could list?
