Why does love scare us?

Love is something we all want. To find that emotional connection with someone is so important to most of us. So why does it scare the hell out of us? Is it the commitment? Is it the fear of being rejected? Some people say they want these things and when they finally find someone who is willing to be committed and loyal, they do everything in their power to screw it up. Is it the age old notion of "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence", or are people so used to not getting what they want, that they intentionally sabotage their every shot at true happiness?

Love is supposed to make us happy. It's not supposed to make us sad. But sometimes, true love does both. I believe that no relationship is perfect, and couples will always face difficult times. But it's how they choose to deal with the problems that speaks volumes about a relationship. If you throw your hands up and want to walk away every time there's a problem, that's not true love. True love is worth fighting for because it's so rare these days. To fight for something you believe in wholeheartedly, is a treasured quality that so few possess.

When, and if, you're lucky enough to find someone that loves you unconditionally, hold on for dear life because it may not ever happen again. These days, divorce is an easy option. The idea of breaking up is always kept close at hand...just in case.  For me, once you've found true love, breaking up should be deleted from your vocabulary. Fight for happiness and love like your life depends on it. Your partner might not know how to do this. So tell them how much you love them.  Tell them how empty your life would be without them. Make damn sure they know how important they are to you and that you will fight for this love because it's the most important thing in your life.

 If God chooses to bless you with the gift of true love, don't shame Him by throwing it away at the first sign of a problem. Don't be afraid of love. Embrace and accept this amazing gift!!
