How many times have you heard the phrase “Love is blind?” How many songs have been written about this phrase? How many excuses have you heard from someone uttering the words, “we’re still together” or “he or she is family that’s why we look the other way. After all, love is blind”? How many families and couples have used the excuse that love is blind when it comes to the actions, misdeeds or misbehavior?

LOVE IS NOT BLIND

By Al Garcia

How many times have you heard the phrase “Love is blind?”  How many songs have been written about this phrase?  How many excuses have you heard from someone uttering the words, “we’re still together” or “after all, he [or she] is family” and adds “that’s why we look the other way.  After all, love is blind”?  How many families and couples have used the excuse that love is blind when it comes to their actions, misdeeds or misbehavior? 

Love may be unconditional and absolute.  And Love may overlook human frailties and betrayals by family or friends.  But do not deceive yourself.  Love is not blind.  Love simply covers up the hardships and betrayals.  Love shelters and conceals the weaknesses we see, and disguises shattered bonds and ties that may result when someone lies and/or deceives.

Blind and silent love only hurts and aggravates.  The only blindness is within the one that causes a broken heart or disregards the ties that bind.

How many times have we deceived ourselves with our blind love for someone close and dear? How many times must we accept the disrespect and keep silent just because we have been told that love is blind?  The hurt and pain of being deceived and betrayed is sometimes irreparable and uncorrectable. 

It is best to keep both eyes wide open and your heart secure, because love, too many times,  is not blind, it only sees what it wants to see.
