Love and Loss

Hey Everyone,

I have been gearing my posts more towards college experiences.I am kinda diggin it. Let me know what you think!
My latest story of experiences is this… Is it better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all? I know, wow what a clique. In college I have learned it is hard to be in love and try to be there for someone else when you are still trying to figure out who you are. Often students lose themselves feeling loved by someone else because they are away from the love they received from their parents. Then when they break up for whatever reason one or both parties feel lost and hurt. Make being away from your loved ones even worse. Then drinking and drugs usually come into the picture to try and forget the hurt. This could be why the “Leap for Love” is so strong in young adults. I read in an article called “What I do for love: Risky Behavior in college students” by David Knox. This leap for love is called depression. My advice to those who struggle, which everyone does at some point in your life. Just take a deep breath and write down every feeling you have, all the memories you cherish and let them go. Maybe keep the paper for your records or burn it. I have learned writing things down help me and hopefully you, get through the hard times. Especially, if you do not have someone to console in.
There is also nothing wrong with falling in love in college, it’s a beautiful thing. That is also the point love is beautiful and should stay as an act of beauty and kindness. If you wake up the next morning in regret then maybe you should re-evaluate your choices and who you want to be. I know I have made one too many bad choices in the past especially when it comes to love and partners but, I understand at the end of the day I learned from my series of choices. I hope you do as well. Never let the hurt keep you down.
