been pondering a few things. And, no matter how much I think, I
never come up with a plausible answer. First off, love-A very
popular subject. You love your family and friends, of course.
Love is interpreted as all of a sudden falling head over heels
for someone, or caring for someone so deeply that you'd take a
bullet for them. But, have you ever thought of loving because it
is politically correct? Sure, a parent may love his child and a
niece may love her Aunt, but do we really feel that way or is it
merely a forced emotion we learned through our parents and
church? This is a concept
which is rather hard to figure out-A concept thought of as
beautiful and true, but completely denied its hidden self-The
fact that we hide lies behind love in fear that we may be judged
as spoiled or hateful or awful. When you think of the word
"love", words like shallow, deceit, and frustration seldom come
to mind. Yet, they go hand in hand. Again, I doubt anyone would
be able to truly grasp the concept of this intricate emotion, be
you maniac or monk.
Another topic I've wondered about is emotion. They say a
child is unable to truly love, hate or feel any other emotion.
If they are upset, they are being a spoiled brat. If they are
in love it is only childish, or a phase. But, somehow, once we
reach the age of adulthood everything miraculously becomes
clear. This, I find hard to believe. How on earth does this
make any sense? Adolescence are able to interpret emotions as
well as any adult, though these emotions are usually written
off as "phases". Indeed, once a child becomes hard to
understand, she enters a "phase". A time in her life every
parent dreads and strives to understand, yet they do nothing.
These are merely a couple of things I've been preoccupied with
for quite some time now. But, although it has been a year, the
answers are still as vague as ever.
