Get out your glowsticks and get your vogue on! I am posting this as a fun song to groove to but in all seriousness we could all stand to soak in these lyrics. "Words are so easy to say. You've got to SHOW me love."
The other day I was talking with a friend of mine who said something that had I heard (and heeded) years ago could've saved me a lot of heartache. She said that sometimes people confuse love with need. Someone may need you but they may not love you. And the thing is they don't always know it. Because they confuse one with the other, they go through the motions as if it is actually love. Then when they stop needing you, they take that as they have stopped loving you. One of the worst feelings I have ever felt is having someone say that they loved me and then deny it once they stopped needing me. She said that the right relationship must have all of these three things: love, need and desire. Wait... I've heard that before!
And I begged her not to walk out the door
She packed her bags and turned right away
And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
I want you
I need you
but there aint no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad
'Cause two out of three aint bad
- Meatloaf "Two Out of Three Aint Bad"
*Sound of record scratching in the middle of the song*
Two out of three aint bad? The hell it aint!
For years I did not understand how you could say you need a person and not love them. Thinking about it now, part of love is wanting what's best for the other person. It's not love if you only want to be with that person because you feel that you need them for what they do for you and how they make you feel, yet you have no regard for their well being. That's not love, that's leeching. Hindsight is so 20/20.
Let's all get free and make room for the right people in our lives so we can get to singing this...
