Beautiful Tragedy

Everyone wants it. Everyone will fight for it. Why? Because it is the most beautiful thing in the entire universe. The most magical yet the most destructive. It will bring you the feeling of  happiness that you never knew existed. But it can also bring chaos into your world. As per my favorite quote...

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”― Neil Gaiman,The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones.

But how can humanity survive if we gave up on love? Like C.S. Lewis said, “To love at all is to be vulnerable.” Love, and be loved like you just don’t care. Love without fearing. Love without trying to control it. Because fear and control only diminish the glory and beauty of love, making it just another mediocre thing in life.”

Take a risk and fall in love. No matter how painful it would be.Because if you do not risk anything, you risk even more. Love recklessly, passionately and fiercely.
