Now, I'm not a JLO fan... and I'm certainly not one to quote her.. or read any article involving her, but with all the relationships crumbling around us (and with the crumbling of my own) I've been reading alot about why people separate after long and intensely close relationships. Love is and always will be one of life's biggest enigmas. We love each other with all our hearts and with every intent of being the "one" who light each other up. Then somewhere along the way the intent fades away, and whatever light is there begins to dim, and hearts begin to change.. and most of the time we can't explain why that happens. Why the dynamics between two people change so much that one (or both) loses sight of the future that was once wanted so badly. The last to lines of her quote really hit home for me. I couldn't have said it better myself.
I will never be able to say with 100% certainty why these things change. I don't think anyone ever can. it's just a feeling that overwhelms you-a feeling that you're not in the right place, you're not doing what's best for you, and in turn-you aren't doing what's best for the other person. You can be good for each other, but it doesn't mean you're necessarily right for each other.
We can be so overwhelmed with happiness and love for each other that for a while, we're blind to all the negative aspects of the relationship.. Ignorance is bliss.. love is blinding.. ya dee ya dee ya da.--Eventually we always snap out of it, and it is in that moment of awakening we are forced to make a hard decision-to stay, or to go.
