Loving for Sentimental Reasons

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart


We often love for sentimental reasons, for longing to be loved, for feeling completed, for the company of somebody else. Many times this leads to something unhealthy: we let ourselves be submissive to the one we love. Or worse, we manipulate those who love us. All, I believe, are because of our inner fear of being left alone in this cruel world. We build our fortress in the name of love for our emotional protection. In the end, love stories reflect mankind's endless efforts to survive. But I am convinced that it will never make us happy. Because we can only be fulfilled when we can love the way it should be: the love that liberates, not binds. The love that gives, not takes.

As i said in my blog...Love = Freedom = Joy
jadi kalau sesuatu itu tidak membawa freedom...berarti bukan love,kalau sesuatu tidak membawa joy bukan love,sesuatu yang tidak membawa love berarti bukan joy.
That's the holy trinity.

Fear is the opposite of love.

so...neither you love or fear.

And if you try to do something...just ask this question "what would love do ?" then you will always find a good decission to make....tentunya love yang = freedom = joy tadi yahhhh...bukan yang binds everything in your grasp kind of love.
Bottom Line : SETUBUHHHH !!!
