Falling

So we’ve all been through it, that feeling of lightheadedness, butterflies in ones tummy, sweaty palms, shortness of breath, and the view from where we are standing. No, I’m not talking about bungee jumping off Niagra Falls, but that thing that most of us do far more easily….falling in love. Yeah thats probably the one kind of falling we are most familiar with, well apart from the falling markets that is (more common in this day and age : ). And when a few days / weeks / months / years down the line, our fall is broken only by the reality of heartbreak, we wonder why we never had our safety harnesses on,  or why we even stepped off the ledge in the first place?

Yeah its great to fall in love, its not so great however to deal with all its raw ugliness, the tears, the doubts, the suspicions, the insecurities, and the realisation that the person that one loves is flawed, in so many ways, and that perhaps they sometimes don’t even deserve our love.

So why do we it so easily, and often without thinking ? And how do we try to not do it in future ? Hmmm that is the sixty four thousand dollar question. If someone has some clear answers, please let me know.

    uhmmmm maybe the first thing is to not set ourselves up to fall…. what if we saw it as rising in love!

    2nd… the more we try not to fall the more we shall fall….

    cos there are indeed guarantees in life just keep feeding ourselves unworthy beliefs low and behold… unworthy shall manifest in abundance.

    I think that the desire to learn from life is greater than the false fear we have make up 😉

    there’s only one cure for this lubna … marry at age 16 and vow never to use your brain again until you’re both dead!

    sorry to inform you that that option is no longer available to most of us contemplating the questions you raise.

    instead, we get to keep on feeling 🙂
