All things are temporary. nothing lasts forever. Its not cold, its not harsh, its just true. I don't understand this preoccupation people have with eternity. Often when someone loses a loved one the cling to everyone close to them until they smother them away. You're not a fucking limpet! LET GO!

I see people get so godawfully depressed when they realize that everyone and everything they love will leave them at some point. Then they get all whiny and act betrayed. Its rediculous! Yes, the people you love will die. News flash: So will you. That doesn't make it betrayal.

Seriously, people get depressed about this to the point of being suicidal. That *really* accomplishes lots. (Gee, I don't want to see my family to die so I'LL die) Well, nature weeds out the weak AS WELL AS the godawfully stupid.

It makes me sad to observe it. Are there really so many stupid fuckers that don't realize loving isn't about forever? That doesn't mean it should be pushed away, either! Love is by nature temporary. When you've got it, embrace it. And when it's ripped away, LET IT GO. Love that you can love, mourn it when it leaves, and go on with your life. No matter how bad that emptiness that comes with loss is, you'll survive. What's more, you'll do it again someday.

i think i got what you're saying. i sorta agree. the one thing that got me is, "love is by nature temporary". is it meant in a physical sense (as in when we die, we aren't allowed to hug our mom and dad, etc.)?
nevermind. i'm thinking too much. the piece was okay. i like angry stuff cause people seem to convey that emotion (and angst) a little better than any other emotion.

Nothing is forever....
I rate this a "9", because the words ring so true for me. It makes so much sense, but we oftentimes forget about these things when we're wrapped up in the emotions brought on by the pain of our loss. It's amazing how short-sighted we can sometimes be, when we let the pain overwhelm our sense of reason.

It's funny that just as I was in the middle of discussing this very subject with a fellow IRC chatter, who's girlfriend had cheated on him several times and yet blamed himself for the entire thing.

I posted him your last paragraph, Neelia, and it clicked with him. It really clicked with me, too. Kind of like a slap to the face. Love can take us to the highest of highs, and bring us down to our knees, crying for death to visit us, in a mere instant.

But you know what? If you don't open yourself up to love, you'll never be whole. Love is worth the risk of pain it brings, for it enriches our lives so much more than most of ever realize, even if it doesn't work out. If I've learned anything from past love, it's to do it again, and again, and keep hoping I hit the right combination. =)

makes sense
I must say that i will for the most part agree. I'm still not sure whether i believe that true love is really temporary, but if one is no longer able to express that love, they should JUST LET GO! And when you DO have the chance to express that love, it doesn't need to be in a manner that is acting as though you know it may end at any second, like some girls (or guys) who are afraid you will dump them if they are not with you 24-7.

Yes, i think love is worth the chance, but everything in moderation, people!

makes sense but
It is part of human nature to mourn something when it is gone and for some people they don't know when to let go of it. If you do love someone though it should be expressed you don't have to be around the person 24/7 (this is in reply to E.G. comment) but when they look in your eyes or go to make contact of some sort it shouldn't be looked upon as something vile, and if you treat it like that the person is going to wonder.
