The never-ending love is a nice ideal. And it is an ideal. It's the way real love should be in my mind. If you love somebody today, why shouldn't you love them tomorrow or years from now?
Do people truly change or is it our perceptions that change? We may think we love somebody, but if down the road we hate that person then that hatred negates any consideration of something that was called love. We might call it lust, mutual attraction, common interests, infatuation, desire to fill a personal void--we can call it anything but love. We apparently saw things differently at that time and mistook it all as love.
Feelings are fickle. They are not always to be trusted. True love does not lie. There is more to love than that which we feel inside of us. It's what we think about and see in our dreams for the future. The love of today should be the same love we imagine we will have when we are old.
Love may have its ups and downs, but the over all the trajectory should be the same as a straight line between now and eternity. Same path with dreams shared together. Destination unity.
True love is the ideal we should seek and that ideal should be never-ending.
Have you found a partner who is a good companion on life's journey? Why do you think we are so eager to rush blindly into love? Do you think a never-ending love can be planned successfully?
