Many of us are drawn to that special little feeling we get when we become attracted to someone of the same or different gender. We get butterflies in our stomach, our heart starts to race, and our palms get a bit sweaty. We start day dreaming and thinking only of this person that has become the object of our obsession. We forget about all the other important things in life, and revert back to our teenage years.
But does love really have a scientific measurement to it, or is it really based on the matters of the heart? I have been in lust on many occasion and had my first puppy love in high school. I was a female, yes I know, me a female, hard to believe, lol. Her name was Denise Whitus, she was tall and beautiful, and in my drama class. She was straight as an arrow, but we had such an amazing connection, she was my first true love. By the way, in this case sexuality did not play a role, she was actually straight but saw my male spirit and fell in love. Since then, I have never really felt the same with anyone, don’t get me wrong I have loved, but that deep connection I felt with Denise has been hard to replicate.
They claim that when we fall in love there are chemicals released in our brains that give us that amazing feeling. You can almost consider it a drug. But what happens when that wears off? When reality starts to kick in, and no longer does your love interest seem as cute and adorable when the things that did not bother you back then, are heighten now three folds. Relationships take work, you must move past the butterflies and that amazing drug feeling, to be able to lead a healthy and loving relationship. It is a partnership at best, two individuals working towards the same goal in life. Love has many forms and it changes throughout the years, as your relationship evolves. Be patient with your love, try to understand each other, be gentle and accepting, the grass always seems greener on the other side, until you get there and see that yours was just as green if not more.
If you can’t live your truth, then it’s just not worth living.
