I hope all is well!
For the past few months, I’ve been in this huge mindset of wondering what love is. I’ve had conversations and discussions with people who have been in love, fell out of it and never experienced it. It’s made me want to figure out what love is for myself. I checked out some horoscope stuff that said that I was expected to be in a relationship with someone at the end of 2017.
I feel like the energies around me are directing me to the love that I’ve been desiring. A love filled with admiration, support, and thorough commitment. long with other things. These past few months, I’ve been trying to see what love is because I haven’t experienced it. I kept seeing all these visions of love, these expressions led me to imagine what it could be. I wanted to share it with you all because they’re all amazing!
Nathan Zed’s Good Enough playlists, he expressed the stages of love through music playlists.The titles have the Spotify playlist. The apple playlist is the following highlighted word. My favorite was the first, Honey. The beginnings of love, the honeymoon stage where everything is new and special. Thorns– the difficulties
Spiral– the… spiral
Bloom– knowing you’re good enough
Friends from College on Netflix, about… friends from college. Lol. they’re all in relationships with each other or different partners and incorporating their lives in college with their lives now. They all just moved into the same area so they are bringing the gang back together. I really liked watching it because it made me wonder, “what if”.
She’s Gotta Have It on Netflix, Fuck, I love me some Nola Darling. My sweet polyamorous queen! If you haven’t seen it already, WHY? She is an artist who is trying to make it on her own. She has three lovers, with wildly different personalities. They all are for her in their own ways and she is just trying to live her best life. It’s a remake of one of Spike Lee’s films and he is also the producer. He is so amazing and so is this TV show!
This modern love by Will Darbyshire, this book is a collection of stories or poems of love from the experience of people all around the world. This book took so long to get through because it starts with crushes, then being in the relationship then breaking up. I enjoyed the crushes because it’s what I’ve experienced. I’ve experienced crushes from afar and crushes from up close? (lol, what?) but when it came to the parts of being in love, I just couldn’t fully read it. It was so sweet and while reading it, I started craving that for myself and, I just don’t know how to get there. I think the reason why is because the ending of a relationship is so scary. People can fall out of love or cheat or lie. How do people handle that? I still don’t get it.
The Holiday, the movie, I chose this because one of the main characters had a hard time crying and opening up just as I do. Also, the stand apart moment was the fact that she never said that she loved the guy back! That still bothers me. Don’t you say it back? It hurts enough loving someone and not saying anything but if you say it and they don’t say it back, doesn’t that hurt?
Saying the word love. When do you say it?
