So today will be short. I have had a busy day and not much time to do anything but work until about two hours ago when I sat in car waiting for my son’s practice to finish and then drive home. Well I thought about love. What is it? How do I really know what love is? How does anyone know what love is?
I can say that other than my kids I have only said I love you to two people. One being my wife and the second being the other woman. The weird part is I don’t even really know what it is. I feel good with both of them (well I used to with my wife and we are getting it back) but they were so different. I have never said or felt it from my family. I feel a bond with her family, but is that love. Maybe you can only feel love and know it is love when it is taken from you or you lose it. I don’t know.
I know what I feel is different than how I feel for my kids, but if you were to ask me if I who I was in love with I don’t know that I could answer that question. Can I love more than one person? Romantically? Or is one lust and excitement without the hassles of everyday life?
These are all questions I struggle with and don’t have answers. I am not sure I will ever find the answers. This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands. I think and wonder, wonder and think. It may be a silly thought until you are in a situation like this.
