watching the social network reminded me that i used to have a livejournal. i started reading my old entries and came across this one:

Sometimes you read things that you dont want to forget. My friend wrote this.

There are two types of love in the world. The first type is that kind of love that leaves you breathless. It makes you weak in the knees, have butterflies in your stomach, and makes you keel over like you’re going to throw up. Its a rush of blood to the head, and your life goes spinning out of control, as it defies all forms of logic, of rational thought, and replaces it with the magical dream like vise on everything that you do. Its debilitating, its exhilarating, its everything you hoped to wish for, and much too beautiful much to contain. You burst at the seams and it consumes you to the point of obliteration.

The second type of love is the exact opposite. It steadies you in its hands. It makes you strong, it makes you stand tall and walk into the world without fear. Rather than making you blind, this love grounds you so that life becomes clearer–crystal clear. You know exactly what it is that you must do now. There is nothing in this world that can break you down anymore, not pain, not even death. This is the love that builds you up with strength that you never knew you had, with a kind of life you have never breathed before.

The first love tears you down, the second builds you up. But true love, there is no one without the other. For in reality they are two aspects of the same thing. To just have the first is lust, to just have the second is pride. To have both is but a glimpse of what love really is.

i wonder which friend wrote this?

i posted this right after i met boyrobot. and now i’m married to him! <3
