My first ever relationship was built on uncertainty. It was just like the movies, where there would be some sort of conflict and unrequited love. It was exciting, it made me think that all love needs to be that way. That we need to overcome some kind of problem in order to truly appreciate each other.
Is there love without the drama? Does every relationship needs to be built off of some kind of crisis? That’s just what I was used to, I was used to having to fight for it. Even though my past relationship didn’t work out, it doesn’t mean there wasn’t something done right in all of that wrong.
Can it all just be smiles and butterflies? On one hand, I’ve heard that love is a constant uphill battle. But on the other hand, I’ve heard when it’s the one everything is easy. I feel like it can’t be both.
Without the drama, there just seems to be a lack of excitement. I grew up on star crossed lovers and as a hopeless romantic. Bella couldn’t be with Edward because he was a vampire. I couldn’t be with one of my exes because of an age difference. We like to be able to fight for someone – so what do we do when they’re just sitting in the palm of our hands, no problems in sight?
All we want to do is fall in love, we’re all so addicted to the feeling. We want someone to want us, we want to be needed, we want everything we’ve read in the books or we’ve seen in the movies. Can love really be easier than we thought it was? Can you get everything you’ve ever wanted and more without putting your life on the line for someone? Can that addicting love be obtained without all of the drama?
We’re just not used to things in life being simple, especially when it comes to love.
