Love without adoration is like a matchstick. It ignites but does not give warmth, and if its spark is not put to a fuse or a candle, it extinguishes and has no use.
The rush of love, the flurry of the heart, the fumbling to be perfect… this is our experience in love. Therefore it is not easy to accept failure after such intense emotion. But this is life, I always try to remind myself. That now-distant person once shared moments with me that filled me with love and life. Even my ex-husband. I shared with him many beautiful moments … as well as the worst moments. The hardening of our emotions was brutal. A love that size can turn dry and stale.
The worst thing that can happen in relationships is the feeling of failure over what was once a major excitement. At first, our hearts burst with emotions. But the final emotion is often hate.
