Healthy or unhealthy love---
First, let me say just because I think I know what healthy love is doesn't mean I tend to practice it. Ha. I think a healthy love/relationship is based on desire, attraction and respect rather than need. Healthy love is true love, unhealthy love is more often codependancy.
Problems with love---
Story of my life and not such a bad story really. I love being in love. And so I tend to seek it out more than I probably should given the problems I do have while in the middle of it. I guess the biggest thing has been that one of us has always seemed to love more than the other. I seem to have a lot more interest in the ones that I love more. Ha. I recently experienced absolutely equal love between myself and another (it is the one I have written about here) and it was by far the most satisfying, passionate, healthy, mutually satisying relationship I have ever known. Which is really quite difficult for me to admit because the relationship is now over and I find myself very angry about that. Though, I believe the anger is my way of dealing with the loss because if I were to feel the loss as pain, I truly feel it might somehow kill me.
Diff kinds of love---
Never known slow, steady love only the 'roller coaster' kind. I love and hate that ride, ya know?
Believe in them with all my heart. But I don't think just because you find yours it will ultimately work. I also believe the soul is an infinite thing and so we may have more than one 'soulmate'.
I share very little if any with my present partner. I have shared much with other lovers...especially with the one I referred to earlier. Poetry was a wonderful part of the way we communicated our love.
I don't know if poets are more emotional than other people but I do think we look for the emotion in any situation more than others do. Personally, I love the drama of life and if nothing else, sometimes I come away from even the saddest times with a good story. And if I am grateful for nothing else in the end...I am grateful for that.
I really enjoyed thinking about this and reading what others had to say. Glad you asked the question.
