We may never be ready for love, but we should still try.
I think we are never really ready for love.
Nobody is really ready to sacrifice their freedom or their time, and nobody is really ready for the challenges that come when you get to know another person: arguments, sacrifices, obstacles and adaptation to habits. from someone else or accepting their differences.
It is not easy for anyone in reality, and nobody is totally ready when it comes to giving up certain parts of their life for someone else.
Everyone just wants the attention, the butterflies, the passion and the hot kisses, but no one wants compromise, fighting, and all the effort it takes to make a relationship work.
It is for this reason that people prefer casual encounters, because they do not have to promise anything, they do not need to feel something so deep, and when you do not feel anything, you do not hurt yourself.
But even if we are not ready for love, I think we all have a part of us that wants to talk to someone in the evening…
Someone who can understand us when we barely understand each other, someone to brighten up our bad days.
Someone to count on when things are not right and someone we can trust to tell our secrets.
We all need someone who knows how to calm the storms in our hearts and shelter us from the world and the noise of our own thoughts.
So we can say with certainty that everyone wants love, even if no one is really prepared for it.
We can say with certainty that even if our world collapses, some people are worth it. They make us want to try. They make us want to be ready.
Because the truth is, we are all afraid of falling in love and of hurting ourselves, we are all afraid of losing someone we love, we are all afraid of breaking someone’s heart while trying to fix ours.
But if we keep looking for all the reasons why love can be scary or why we are not ready, we will keep our hearts in a cage forever. If we continue to erect walls and build barriers, we will end up alone.
And the pain of love is a thousand times better than the pain of loneliness.
So maybe we will never be ready for love, but that should never stop us from giving someone a chance, by opening our hearts to them and just letting us down in the hope that there is will finally have someone strong enough to catch us.
