Not Falling In Love

How does one fall in love?

Is it forever, or does it come with interruption(s), moment(s) of reflection(s) of something said or done?

How does one fall out of love?

Do those interruptions lead to hurt that develop into hate?

How does one not fall in love?

Do you guard your heart until you know what it is? Or do you wait until you know that you are ready, ready to accept the one that was “meant” for you?

Or quite frankly, being in love is not your “thing”.

“The inward area is the first place of loss of true Christian life, of true spirituality, and the outward sinful act is the result.” Francis Schaeffer 🙂

  1. good questions that I still am trying to figure out.how to answer. i have fallen in love and though there was a falling out so to speak, i do not think one ever completely loses love – i think it may change ‘faces’ or dynamic. my ex-husband – i saw him the other day in court. he is not the person i fell in love years ago. far from. i do not even recognize him – but – he is the father of my children, so there is something still there. i cannot say it is love and sometimes it is far from anything resembling respect – but – there is something. it will always be there, i just cannot define it.

  2. No matter if a relationship ends, there might still be traces and remembrance of what was. Yes, the good and the bad.

    And you’re right, love doesn’t change. New faces and dynamics do lead some to a greater or lesser meaning of what it is. It’s people that change.
