Insert broken heart picture right here.
You ever wondered why love has so many complications? Does it have to? Or does it only have complications when you're complicated people? Or if you're older?
I'm a pretty complicated person, but very direct and pretty simple once you get to know me. I know who I am and exactly what I want outta life. I don't see why "complicated" must equate "difficulties." Why can't "complicated" just mean "intelligent"?
But it seems on the Love Field, once you hit 40, everything is complicated.
Here's a list of Love Complications:
1. I love him, but he's got so many kids he's paying child-support for, how we ever going to make it?
2. I love her, but she's got this ex, and these kids and . . .
3. I love him, but he's got these serious mental-issues and . . .
4. I love him/her, but she's/he's been burned so bad in the past that . . .
5. I love him/her, but she's/he's got these serious Mommy/Daddy issues that . . .
6. I love him/her but she's/he's married and . . .
7. I love him/her, but she's/he's got this serious PTSD thing, and until he/she . . .
Why does it have to be this way?
It never was this way for me until a few years ago.
I only know TWO people who aren't this way, but they're not even friends. They're just people I know of, friends of friends of friends.
Maybe it doesn't exist. Any way you look at it, it's sad. I just wish I could go back in time, when the only thing you had to worry about was keeping the crops and the fire going. You stuck together then. You formed partnerships. But after reading Matchless (true story of Augusta Tabor), that didn't always work either.
I vacillate back and forth. At heart, I'm an optimist and I'm kind. But that doesn't equate a fool. Sigh.
