Love is starnge in itself; It's an emotion, but not an emotion, substance but not substance. When it goes without compliment, it is thrown into question. Most people feel unrequited and "always have a place in thier heart" for those people and eventually find happiness. Some never find happiness. Fewer begin to fear it.
Everyone explains it as something beautiful.. something different. But in this day of age, so many people experience 'love'- that it's all the same. I have friends that believe they've been in love so many times, but they haven't even reached life outside highschool yet.
There's no need to fear it. Yet, I shouldn't be a hypocrite. I'm afraid of falling in love as well.
