I recently started following a writer/poet on Instagram named Ruby Dhal (@r.dhalwriter). She is absolutely brilliant in the way she describes everything we feel and go through.
Yesterday she posted an explanation on love; it was one of the best ways to describe this stupidly, exhilarating emotion and experience. I thought it was only fair to share with you.
“Love is such a weird phenomenon. You look at one person and suddenly your heart decides that your whole universe will revolve around them. You tie your emotions, your happiness, your wishes and dreams to that one being as if they have all of the answers to every single question about your life. Love is so weird because, if you think about it, it is completely irrational to hold one person and make them the center of your existence. It is completely irrational to think that just their presence is enough to make everything okay. Just one smile on their face is enough to make our day. Just one hug somehow has the power to solve all of our problems. It is completely irrational. But still we do it anyway. We fall for people and we let them fall for us in the most beautiful way possible, as if that is what destiny requires from us. Love is so unimaginably magnificent despite it all, despite its irrationality, its ability to control everything in our lives and despite the undeniable pain it brings with it, I don’t think we would have it any other way.” – Ruby Dhal
