Speculations on Love

Relationships are hard. No one said they were easy. I thank the Lord every day that I found the love of my life. Without her, where would I be? I ask myself this question every day.

I’ll admit it though, finding the one for you isn’t easy. Many people live their entire lives without finding someone they truly love. My brother found a girl and they fell in love. Unfortunately, their relationship fell apart. It left him devastated and he couldn’t figure out how to move forward. Instead of trying to move forward he asked me, “How do I get my ex back?”

I didn’t really know what to tell him. Finding the person you love is hard enough, losing them is worse. I did the only thing I could – I told him to try and get back with her. The thing I didn’t expect was to discover that she had moved on. I’m not sure why I’m explaining this on here. I guess I just feel bad and wanted to hear if others had experienced something similar. How do you console someone who is inconsolable?

My brother has been living at my house for the past week as he had nowhere to go after she kicked him out. Seeing him in the dumps like he’s been has been tough. My brother has really made me feel blessed to have such a lovely wife and perfect relationship. It’s tough to think about a life without her, and I can’t imagine losing someone when they were so important and integral to my existence.

Love can hurt, but it can also be great. Some people seem to just get unlucky, and there’s really no rhyme or reason to how it all works. For now, I’ll remain thankful.
