Just feeling deep.

I have always firmly believed that love knows no boundaries. It's a comfort. When someone makes you feel happy, makes your heart skip a beat or gives you the googly eyes, or god forbid, makes you feel sick for three days, that is an emotion. Love, like hate is your personal emotion. It can't be controlled. Your husband, wife, sister, brother, cousin, uncle, aunt, or even some stranger isn't going to sit there and press some imaginary button that tones it down a notch because there isn't one for them too touch. No one can control how you feel. Emotions don't work like that. Love and hate don't work like that. Yeah, they are on the total ends of the spectrum but it is your button. It is yours to press on and off. We all have opinions, and those opinions are just that - a side effect of emotions that can be turned on and off. So think the next time you get angry. Sure, someone might ask you to calm down or relax but only you have that ability to make it so. Think a about love the next time you see an older couple celebrating their 50th anniversary or the next time you see two people of the same sex holding hands or sharing a simple kiss. They have something. It's a personal connection that no other, not even their own lover can control. Opinions count but so does respect and as humans i think we have traveled the all to familiar road of repression, the need to control something we don't fully understand but question: do we? "When love is given limits and boundaries it loses its ability to change the world." Andrea Burns. Instead of trying to control the flames of love maybe we should extinguish the flames of hate.
