the 3 powerful words … i love you …

Posted on 20 September 2004 by Liza Mae V.

“I love you.”
“Why?”

He questioned it.
So I questioned it.
Why do I feel this way?  Am I just imagining it or deluding myself to believe that I am feeling this way?  I was second guessing myself for a second until I noticed that I am in tune with what I feel. I believe that he questions my emotions because he truly doesn’t know his own.  He’s broken by his past and he is trying to pick up the pieces seeing if it fits in this puzzle … or will it cut him?  He is the one truly confused but he is trying to search for understanding.  Once I noted that to him, he quickly realized his state.

——————————————————————–

“I feel bad when you say that(I love you).”
“Don’t feel bad …”

I say what I mean … and I mean what I say.  That doesn’t mean that the feeling has to be reciprocated.  I want you to understand that I do not expect anything back because to truly give … you should not expect anything in return.  The worse thing is for one to say that they love me, just because they felt guilty.  Just because the feeling is not verbally expressed … actions speak enough.

He put himself in my shoes and determined how he would feel if he said those three words and it wasn’t reciprocated.  He would feel bad if he was me because he fears loving someone and them not loving him back.  I would say it is a common fear in people because it shows vulnerability and weakness.  It shows that you are prone to being hurt.

When love is involved we always try to look at the worse case, pain.  We live our lives trying to steer away from pain that we do not realize that we can not truly experience happiness without the pain. Also, when we try to steer away from pain … we are also steering away from happiness.  I do not fear being hurt … because what I fear more is not acquiring happiness.  Atleast I had this moment … atleast I can say I was happy.   Thank you for bringing out this feeling in me.

Love Liza

    love?

    Love is like pi – natural, irrational, and very important.

    Natural : what ur feeling.
    Irrational: feeling he’s fighting.
    Importance: That both You and Him want to be love.
