I know a cliche topic but I’m a cliche person and I would like to share my view on this subject.
What is love?
Love has many different definitions worldwide. To the caring and worried family member or friend it’s when they say “be careful” or “drive safe”. It’s when they ask “have you eaten?” Or “are you okay?”
To the girl that’s been hurt over and over again it’s her calling you goofy names because she is too scared to actually say how she feels. To the guy that doesn’t know how to love it’s him telling you that you deserve better than him even when he is your better.
Love is one of the most complicated things around if not the most complicated thing. It is so complicated it’s simple. Love comes from many different aspects of life. It comes from people all over.
Love is so much more than just 3 words. I’m not just talking about the love we give others I’m talking about the love we give ourselves. Love is finally realizing how beautiful you are (scars and all). Love is waking up each day fighting for what ever it is you want to fight for.
Love is walking away from the toxic people in your life because you deserve better. Love is what brings people together.
Love is the strong affection, warm attraction, and attraction based on sexual desire. -Merriam Thesaurus
What is heartbreak?
I’m sure everyone is aware of what heartbreak is. I mean it’s more than just a word to describe someone eating the food you been thinking about all day. It’s that feeling that aching feeling that makes you clench your chest and cry.
Not just any cry but ugly cry that’s right I’m talking true heartbreak. It comes in many different shapes and forms. It can come from losing a loved one, ending a long relationship, even losing a friend.
You ever fall in love and before you know it that guy or girl is moving on in life without you? Yeah we all been there it’s life and it sucks. Heartbreak is the worst thing ever but without it we wouldn’t grow as people.
Now before we jump the gun I’m not a fan of heartbreak and no I’m not supporting that loser who dumped you last week for someone else. Heartbreak although it literally feels like someone is breaking your heart in two like in the cartoons, it allows growth.
I say welcome heartbreak but don’t let it stay because after so long you become the grumpy person who can’t move on. Heartbreak sucks and I don’t wish it on anyone but it does happen to everyone.
My story/take on the topic:
I met a guy in middle school and instantly we became best friends. He was like my Superman if that makes sense. We grew together and experienced a lot of stuff together. He dated other people and so did I. I was with a person for three and a half years before I realized how toxic it was ( that’s a story I’ll be sharing next ). He supported me through that and helped me out. I helped him through break ups and so on and so forth. It was the end of freshman year when I realized that I started to fall for him and he moved away. So I picked myself back up and got over it. He came back to town a year later and all those feelings came rushing back. I fell all over again. I tried to keep things mutual because for all I knew he didn’t feel the same. One day we was talking and he told me he met a girl and they are still together to this day.
Am I happy for him? Of course. I’m glad he met the girl of his dreams and is happy. I wish them both the best.
Do I miss him? Yeah. We never dated, we never addressed our feelings. For all I know he never felt the same way I did he only wanted to be friends. But because I let my feelings get in the way I lost my best friend.
Do I count him as my first love? Yeah I do he was the first guy I fell for and even though we never dated he taught me a lot and helped me through so much. I know I probably sound crazy but what can I say?
So I get heartbreak from losing my first love and best friend. It’s painful and sucks but without it I wouldn’t be who I am today. I think love and heartbreak go hand in hand.
Without love heartbreak wouldn’t really have this definition it would just be sadness. Without heartbreak love would have no meaning. I think the two shapes each other. I say welcome both of them and grow with each new experience.
