Sometimes it absolutely terrifies me what a powerful force love is. And I’m not even referring to all the murders that are committed by teenagers, and older, using it as their reason. I mean the fact that people are willing to give up so much of themselves because of it. How so many peoples change their whole ambition and direction in life just to stay with the person they love. How people change career paths and reconsider where and how they wanna live, despite having known what they wanted before. Maybe their whole lives. And then they just give up on all of it, because this one person walks into their life, and then it’s either one-sided self-sacrificing (unhealthy) or all about compromising (healthy relationship). Suddenly your life is not just about what you want, but what they want, too.
It just really, really terrifies me sometimes.
