An emotional journey:- A non-fiction post on love

There were the best of times and then there were the worst of times.
And all the while, it was because of the love.


Love is such a confusing emotion. At one point of time, it exhilarates us, makes us experience joy, happiness, passion. Yet at another point in time, it is the source of all the misery and bitterness in our life. Still, it’s the feeling of being loved, of being wanted that pulls us on.

Every relationship follows a same pattern from the beginning till the end. It starts with the nervous butterflies flapping away in the depths of the stomach, some coy glances, flirting and talking for hours together on the telephone. Those initial days of young budding love are probably the best. The two are just starting to discover each other. They find delight in interests they share and for the ones they don’t share, they talk about it. The whirlpool of young love sweeps away everyone off their feet.

Love makes us do so many things. It makes us care, makes us concerned about the person in our life. We put the needs of that special someone before our own. We try to help them overcome their sadness and depressions. We share their joys and happiness. We try to inspire and encourage them to do even better in life. It makes us anxious when we don’t get a call or a text from them for long. Hearing about their illness makes us want to rush to the hospital to be with them just holding their hand. Watching other couples walking around in the mall makes us miss our special someone.


Then, why does it all end? The beautiful serene picture one creates of a future with the special person of their dreams, why does that picture fade away? As the relationship matures, either things work out or they don’t. Either understanding seeps in or impatience does. And so the two make it or they break it. And then comes the feeling of depression. The abject loneliness drives us crazy. The weaker at heart try to indulge in self-harm as a way of coping. The more possessive types hatch plans to garner revenge. The egoists scoff off the relation as a bad phase and are ready to move on immediately.

But at the end of day, when they go to bed, they think of the person they were once in a relationship with and they think of all the beautiful moments that they had spent with them. Whether they would like to admit it or not, end of the day they would always love their special someone.

  24. Bedlam Says:

    You are awesome. Couldn't find an err.. :)

  25. buckingfastard Says:

    true to every word i m sure!! sometimes i wish dis whole process of love was simple as in the initial days of passion!!!

    it would be better if da excitement never fade away...but is does dammit!!

  26. Gyanban Says:

    you know love is unique..literally. There is no pattern to it.some love stories begin animosity,some begin with pity, some with jealousy,and some with lust. Likewise there ends are also not the same. History is replete with cases where love stories have had varied endings.Therefore in my humble opinion, it's not a simple thing at all I'd bracket it under rather complex.

    Quite enjoyed reading your take on the non fiction topic.A good flow and simple language make it an easy read.

    A wonderful post...led me to think for a while in silence. In life there is not a happy ending always. I once read a quote somewhere: "Loving someone is like holding a handful of Sand. If you grip too hard, it'll slip right through your fingers and disappear."
    I loved your thought provoking words.
