IS LOVE ENOUGH?
Singer, Sisqo asked the question a few years ago…”Is love enough to make to stay with me?” It’s a question that many people share different opinions on. Some say yes, with love couples can conquer any obstacle thrown their way. My opinion on the other hand is a little different.
Being in love is a wonderful feeling, but it isn’t all you need to make a relationship last. It also takes hard work and dedication. Love is a very important factor, but when choosing the right person you cannot only think emotionally, but logically as well. The heart and mind can pull you in two different directions so it’s important to try to find common ground between the two.
Now before I get my head bitten off by those that disagree with me, let me explain my point. Say you’re with a guy and you love him and you want nothing more than to have a perfect relationship, but you two just don’t get along. You argue more times than not, the bad outweigh the good, the smallest things annoy you both, and it seems like you too are always on opposite ends. Now don’t get me wrong, I understand that arguing works for some couples. But for others, it can bring the relationship down, cause drama, and completely ruin the mood.
Relationships take more than just love. They require patience, understanding, compromise, and trust.
Trust. Now there’s a word that describes a major issue with a lot of relationships. You remember the heated argument in Nicki Minaj’s “Right Through Me” video. Like Nicki, some women may have trust issues with their guy. Maybe he did something in the past that brought on those feelings. Maybe it’s just the girl’s insecurities. But the worst thing you can do to an innocent man is accuse him (like Jay said). So in this case is love enough to keep the guy around? He loves his girl but he’s tired of the bickering and the lack of trust. What about the female’s point of view? Maybe her guy has done a lot of wrong in the past that damaged her trust. Is love enough to keep her in the relationship? Is it enough to help build her trust back up?
It’s a hard question that not many people can answer unless they’ve been in the situation. Personally, I believe that love is a powerful thing that can bring out the best in a relationship but it isn’t always enough to keep two people together. What do you think? Can love stand the test of time? Or are their certain things and situations that it just can’t conquer?
