A lot of time and effort has been expended wondering about the nature of love and the reasons for love – and there are as many explanations are there are blades of grass in a field. They are myriad and inconclusive.
Each definition carries a grain of truth – but not the whole truth and it depends on the people involved and the nature of their experiences.
All this would go to show that there is no good reason for falling in love – people just do. People fall in love for all sorts of reasons which they are unable to comprehend or make sense of.
Falling in love is irrational and should be recognized as such since at times – there are a million good reasons for falling in love and yet we don’t; while during other times, there are no good reasons present for falling in love with someone and yet we find ourselves swimming in love’s embrace without knowing quite how or why.
Love is illogical and it just happens. When it finds us, we have no choice but to either surrender to it – or resist with all our might… only to succumb to it in the end.
Happy Heart’s Day!
