Overrated

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

As I move forward into the fourth decade of my life the more I realize that love is overrated. Maybe not for others, but in my case it, sadly, is. Loving someone with all you’ve got never makes certain the ‘happily ever after” that everyone dreams of but only a few achieve. Such is a sad fact of life that, deluded into believing in the supposed all-conquering power of love, we refuse to accept and continue to struggle with until there is nothing left. When your market value becomes a determinant of the future of your relationship you start doubting your self worth, and you slowly understand why you are still alone.

I used to believe in love; but like religion, marriage and God’s existence, love—in all its glory--is something that I now question.
