    is it worth it...

    the heartache
    the sadness
    the bitter moments
    the teary goodbyes
    the ripping of your insides when it's time to part

    is it worth putting yourself in jeopardy of the pain that you MIGHT go through?

    YES.

    one moment of pleasure
    one minute of the joy
    one nanosecond of that touchie-feelie feeling that accompany TRUE love is worth all the negative possibilities that anyone could imagine.

    I HAVE KNOWN LOVE {and i LOVED it:)}

    thank you for this.

    I say yes

    people aren't perfect. No matter what you do or say someone will dissappoint you in some way or another. It's good to share your love. I'd rather have the chance to share my love with someone and learn from the experience, than to be in the "perfect" relationship and be there treading water or something like that.
    You done opened ma eyes with this and ma heart.

    I say Yes!!! Yes!!! and YES again!!!

    I was just saying that I'm glad I'm single after hearing a couple horror stories today about a friend's relationship. But, I really do desire to love again (in spite of the hurt endured from my last relationship of 4 yrs). I'm learning that not all men are the same and that I don't have to settle for any man. But, even the most wonderful, Godly man has faults.

    Like UbZoRb said, nobody's perfect. Not you/me, he/she. But it is good to love and share love. If it doesn't work out, learn from the experience and move on. ;)

    Did I make sense? Felt like babbling..:p

    this scribe is tight but i see that it might end up a forum question...

    so before it does allow me to interject: Love is worth it. It will place us in positions of being hurt and trust being destoyed but this is not Godly love. thist is man's desires who mislead our hearts into believing what is lust is love. We must seek God first, give into to Him completely and allow Him to search our hearts. Then and only then will love prevail and never fail. This doesn't mean that love won't still cause soem pain, but, under the comittment to God, LOVE will mend stronger than before.

    Once again, Love never fails, man does....

    I say YES TOO

    I wrote this the day of the funeral. The day I buried my marriage. I wasn't feeling like love was worth the pain and heartache after a failed marriage. I've healed and recovered

    Dnommo, I agree with you most definitely. Put God first and all else will fall into place.

    Kem, Now this is SCARY! You and I in agreement?(looks up to see if the sky is falling):D

    Zorb & Afri, I agree, YES, YES, YES. No-one is perfect. I guess you could say that was apart of my healing process, discovery of that fact.

    Baller, I posted this and later read your poem My Joy. Such a heartfelt poem. In reading it, I was able to relate and as you stated here, I too have KNOWN love and I too LOVED it.

    I would like to thank each of you for your encouraging replies. This is a perfect example of LOVE. Yes, it's WORTH IT.:love:

    How's bout a cyber group hug:D

    MadLove:heart: Coco

    ya know

    you know i've always wondered why love hurts
    then i found out it wasn't love

    do what you feel in your heart
    that's all that counts

    if it don't feel good then...................

    Love is Learning to Overcome Varous Entities in ones life. And well at some point or another We all get through it...
