Love Actually

"I have found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said “Journey’s end in Lover’s Meeting”. What an Extraordinary thought! Personally I have not experienced anything remotely close to that but I am more than willing to believe that Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said “Love is blind”. Now that is something I know to be true! For some quite inexplicably love fades, for others love is simply lost, but then of course love can also be found even if it is just for the night and there is another kind of love-the cruelest kind, one that almost kills its victims. It’s called unrequited love and of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories? Those of us who fall in love alone. We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved-ones. We are the un-loved ones, the walking wounded, the handicap without an advantage of a great parking space.

Yes you are looking at one such individual!"

You don’t like yourself but you do admire yourself.
It’s all you’ve got so you cling to it.
You’re so afraid if you'll change, you'll lose what makes you special.

Being miserable doesn’t make you better than anybody else,
it just makes you miserable!
