Behind the actions of what we think love is, selfish desires are attached relentlessly. We make others into tools, control them for our happiness, and disguise this with love. Sometimes, the disguise is so tricky that it even deceives us but eventually, the selfish desires show up.
Behind the screen of so-called love, we hide our desires and deceive ourselves as well as others. What we truly love is not “you” but “us loving you.” Occasionally, we sacrifice ourselves for our lovers and for our family, but we do so when the target is still on the extension of my existence.
There are love stories as many as the number of people in the world, and there are reasons as many as the number of stories. Behind so many stories about love and hate, there is one commonality. As the rain falling on mountains and fields flows into the sea together, all conflicts end up gathering at one place. That is so- called “self-love.”
Many couples love each other all their lives, but fight over much more trivial matters and break up. When the situation reaches that extent, we are bound to have a question. “Are we really in love with each other?” While we love enough to risk our lives, why do we not tolerate tiny little things but hurt each other?
