Rambling

I only fell in love once, and i wish to be in love with him forever. I feel like my soul was saved by loving him. That i was given so much happiness i would be able to go on living no matter how many bad things happen.

Sometimes i watch a drama that reminds me of this love and i cry for a long time. The time i spent with him were the best days of my life.

The reality is there are many types of love. When I fell in love with my ex-wife, it was romantic love. Kind of like being high. It was horrible when she wasn't there. but romantic love fades. Then I was to transition to mature love, or a chosen love. This is kind of like when you adore a person for who they are. She wasn't able to do this and lamented the loss of the romantic love we had before. We have a son. I fell for him so hard, I never saw it coming. I would do anything for him. This has to be tempered to parent. I have to do right by him sometimes, which means saying no, and often letting him suffer the consequences of his choices. This can be really hard.

I am glad you experienced both types of love. I feel like what i experienced with this person was similar to unconditional love too. Just him being in this world made me happy. It's a gift to experience this feeling.
