The Daily Tea: Love is a Fire...

"Love is a fire, but whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell."
-Joan Crawford, American film star

Love is blind.
Or at least that’s what we like to tell ourselves in order to soften the blow and help with the guilt that accompanies the hurt.
In actuality love is one of the most eye opening experiences once can go through. When we fall for someone, we see everything that is good about them. However, we also see the bad. Most of us don’t go to great lengths to fool the other person in the process of courting. We may downplay things but we show who we are. With love we often ignore the bad in favor of the good. That’s perfectly fine until it comes back to haunt us later.
Love is a fickle thing. It’s not going to work until you throw yourself completely into it but that is one huge gamble.
We like to think of cupid as a cute little angel or a handsome son of a god with a bow and arrow prancing around to prick us with unbound and steadfast love. Cupid may very well be an old, ugly, and bitter man who walks with a limp and shoots out of spite.
You never know how anything is going to turn out. The exciting and scary thing is choosing to go down that road. Good or bad, in the end you learn things. Mostly about yourself.
Either way, you'll survive. We can only fan the flames and hope...
