True Love – A Myth ?


What exactly is love?

I think love is such a beautiful thing that it has to be a myth, because something as pure and serene as love can’t survive in today’s ‘survival of the fittest’ world. We all just delude ourselves into thinking we know what love is.In reality, we are selfish and  have a self-serving motive in everything we do , even when we are not able to see it. Mostly its to make our life easier,but life isn’t supposed to be easy or fair.

The true love of soul mate kind of love only exists in movies and books, not in real life.On earth , we have more of a convenient love.Easy going and pragmatic , now that kind of love lasts in real life.We all wonder ,are soul mates really real ? The optimists like to believe they are but even they agree the probability of meeting your soul mate is like a million to one.So people waiting for ‘the one’ better get ready to die alone because the math is definitely not in their corner.

Philosophers say opposites attract but even that is proved through science, so how can people who find logic even in love actually find love.Because love is  supposed to be logic less and clueless.We read a few book and watch some romantic comedies we think we know all there is to know about love.But love is not to be understood , its to be felt.

Love is different for everybody.It doesn’t have to be the soul mate kind , it can also be with someone or something you connect with,that you think understands you in a whole different way.Because in the end, I think , love is all about understanding one another.Its said that when we eat chocolate, the same enzyme is released in our brain and body when we are supposedly in love.So just like we prefer some chocolates over others, some love are strong and some weak.Our favourites in chocolate keep changing exactly how we outgrow some loves because they weren’t meant to be until we taste that ultimate chocolate  which we know will always remain our favourite even though sometimes it may taste bitter.

So to answer the question is love a myth ? well , we have all our life to find out.

Love is the symphony no. fifth

Love is the hope we live with

Love we wish isn’t a myth
