Just LOVE me, like a fat kid loves cake!

Just love me! by Dorothy

Have you ever felt like that? When I first heard that, it
hit me like a ton of bricks. To be in LOVE like that or to
be loved like that would just rule forever. Is that not what
we are all yearning for? Do we not seek out LOVE from the
second we breathe as an infant? We search our parents eyes
for that look of LOVE. We smile because we know it makes
them smile with the LOVE that they feel for us.

To LOVE or not to LOVE? This is the question we all ponder
through out life.

Why do we yearn to be someones everything? We want nothing
more than to feel like the LOVE of one`s life. We spend our
lives looking for that special person that will make our
world seem like a dream. We want to feel safe and secure in
our choice of partners. But how do we really know that this
one is “the one” we will LOVE unconditionally forever? How
do we know that this choice of LOVE will not break our
heart? How do we know that this LOVE will LOVE us when the
chips are down and we are not that perfect person that they
fell in LOVE with?

Well I hate to sound like a wet blanket here on a cold
night, but nothing is guaranteed. Life promises us nothing.
We make our lives what they are, right at this moment. In
matters of the heart we gamble, and as I have said before,
to give LOVE is to risk losing LOVE. That is just another
one of those bleary facts. Like rain storms and snowfalls,
we have no control over anything that nature has given to
us. We can only do our best with what we have. I have spoken
before about gifts. Well, LOVE is a gift when it is given
and when it is received. It does not happen because we say
we want it to, or when we like a person and say “LOVE me”.
HA. I am sure that almost everyone out there will agree to
that. I am also certain that the word “Stalker” comes from
that notion.

LOVE can be a very scary risk. “Have you ever been in love?
Horrible isn’t it! It makes you so vulnerable. It opens you
up, totally exposing your heart only to let someone get
inside you and twist things up so tight, you can barely
breathe. You build up defenses, you build an entire suit of
armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then that person, not
seeming any different from any other person, wanders into
your lonely life. You give them your heart. They didn’t ask
for it. They did something one day, like kiss you or smile
your way, and then your life isn’t your own any more. LOVE
takes your heart hostage. LOVE swarms inside you. LOVE
devours your entire being and leaves you crying in the
darkness. With the simple phrase, “lets just be friends”, it
turns into a knife, cutting its way into your heart. The
pain is like no other you have ever felt nor ever want to
feel again. Not just in your imagination, not just in the
mind. It’s like losing a part of who you are, or rather who
you were. That my friends is one reason we are so careful to
not make the wrong LOVE choice. I know reading this totally
makes one never want to do that. But we do, over and over
again. Why?

Is it such a deep needed desire that we really have no
control? Is cupids arrow that strong? YES on both counts.

LOVE is one of the most powerful sensations we will ever
endure in our lives.

LOVE knows no limit to its power, no end to its trust, no
loss of its hope.

LOVE can overpower anything.

LOVE stays up, when all else has falls down.

LOVE is felt when one grasps another’s hand.

LOVE is as much of an object as an obsession. Everybody
wants it and everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it.
Those who do, will cherish it, get lost in it, and among
all, will never, ever forget it.

LOVE does not waste time looking for the perfect lover,
instead it creates a perfect love.

LOVE is somewhat like an hourglass, the heart fills up on
one side as the brain empties the other.

LOVE is admiring ones heart: as admiration is the love of
ones mind.

LOVE is with you when you least deserve it, because that’s
when you really need it.

These are a few thoughts that I have that tell me what LOVE
is and why LOVE is.

When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody
to complete us.We must understand that until we admit that
while our partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we
alone are the only ones that can bring that same fulfillment
to ourselves. No one is responsible for our happiness.

Some people fall into a pattern of needing that NEWNESS
LOVE in their relationships. These people will go from one
relationship to another forever, never getting off that
roller coaster of failure. They never understand that LOVE
has stages. LOVE at first is so full of mystery and
excitement. Then we move into becoming comfortable with one
another and blending our ways to continue to strengthen our
LOVE for one another. We continue to grow with each other,
adding newness to each other by growing in one world, but as
two people. Our years together build our road to our destiny
of spending our lives and enduring tribulations as one. If
you want life to always be a bed of roses, then you best
grow a few gardens, because the roses will only get there if
you grow them or bring them to your life. In other words
sweet people of LOVE, your LOVE and passion is only what you
make it. If you ignore it or get too busy to feed it, it
will die or fade away. It’s like any other living breathing
thing. LOVE needs to be treated with respect and treated
like the special gift that it is.

Another thing we must be careful of is to let those we love
be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our
own image, otherwise LOVE is only the reflection of
ourselves we find in them. LOVE like you mean it, it is the
only true way to let your LOVE for one another grow stronger
and continue to be all powerful and wonderful.


Relationships ask us to contemplate “forever” as a way of

It is a world without end of our own creation.

Toni Sciarra Poynter


The purpose of life is to discover your gift.

The work of life is to develop it.

The meaning of life is to give your gift away.

The gift, is LOVE!
