“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” ― Lao Tzu
I’ve searched for a way to explain my take on the difference between falling in love and staying there for a very long time— and quite honestly I’ve never felt qualified to write about it in a non-fictional setting (i.e. here.) Nor do I really want to. It’s personal, and it’s private— and mostly likely I assume it’s fairly subjective.
Falling in love is easy. We’re wired that way. I mean… for the future of humanity (up until recently) doing so has mostly been necessary. Nonetheless, it’s fun, it’s sweet, and it’s delicious.
Staying there however has gotten the rap for being less so. Which is something (as I mentioned above) I’ve wanted to address for a while. So I’m writing a fictional account in the form of a follow up to a coming of age story I wrote in 2014.
The ending of this story has yet to be written. But here’s a hint as to what I think the short answer is: KEEP it delicious and fun. 🙂
If you want more than that… I’m going to have to suggest reading the book. 🙂
In the meantime though, here is an amazing non-fictional (and more serious) account to tide you over. 😉
