Do we fall in love with how the person actually is? Or the idea of them we have inside our brain,
We love to romanticize their dull eyes, their scam smiles and their honey dripped lies.
And oxytocin supports our beliefs overtime, the hugs feels heavenly, the kiss seems like a delight.
Their normal expressions seem so special, “the love drug” keeps playing tricks on our mind
Then we slowly start imagining scenarios in which they have married us and we are living a “happily ever after life”
But alas, infatuation or lust is temporary, most of the times,
You become obsessed with them, like an addict, you’re drawn to their presence and keep pestering them all the time,
Asking them about their whereabouts, feel insecure, jealous, feel that pit in the stomach when they dont give you importance,
You wish to keep them happy, no matter what, never wish to go against them, wish to be by their side, even though it hinders your self esteem all the time.
Until one day they tell you,
“dont contact me ever again”
And you realise, that infatuation played you well
You’re heartbroken, you feel this is the end of life,
When in reality, it’s not.
For now is the time you shine,
You give yourself the love and importance you deserved all the time.❣
