This is a topic that I have been wanting to discuss on my blog for a while now.
I’m not criticising or even saying that this is everybody’s experiences but would like to merely observe and point out my own findings in this area.
Love. The strange chemical reactions that bounce around in our brains. It is literally like a drug, we crave it, we look for it.
I mean we all on some level want to feel the closeness of another human being. It’s like the itch that lives just beneath your skin when you have a secret to tell.
It’s almost like you’re saying, “Please get to know me, unearth all the hidden intricacies that live within me. I want to show you, I want to show someone.” And when you’re with them everything else melts away. Your heart picks up speed around them, there are very little boundaries between you.
You have essentially revealed your deepest darkest self to them. It can be dangerous.
But it can also produce a high like no over, all those endorphin’s seeping out from your skin like a thousand doves being released all at once. It can be freeing – but also binding.
Relationships and love in particular can also bring out our inner demons. Things that you previously didn’t have to think about all of a sudden seem relevant.
Envy, short temperateness and claustrophobia can also ensue in small doses. You can literally turn into a whole different person at times.
I wonder if that’s a natural response- to feel territorial?
It makes you wonder, what are they doing? Shouldn’t you go and see them? And little things that never bothered you or them suddenly come up.
Then again, that in a way is the gamble. You are literally showing someone every facet of your personality. Over time they’re going to see all your mood swings and emotional outbursts which seem to be over petty things.
All those things that beforehand you were able to tuck neatly away and show them a pre-made Marks and Spencer’s Own Dish rather than that shitty Tesco ready-meal that exists between the hours of 11-1pm before you’ve properly manufactured the pristine “everyday” appearance.
Wow, that was a bit of a ramble.
Sorry about that, but those were just my thoughts. My point is that relationships are revealing in the way that it is almost as though you gained access to your significant others mind.
But it’s definitely worth it in my own opinion. It takes a lot to “know” someone completely.
Ciao for now,
