There are two kinds of love that really get my attention. There is a love in which you want to know everything about a person; most importantly, their past and who they were. And there is a love in which you want to know everything relevant about a person; their future and who they want to be.
The first love can be destroyed easily by the past because they might confuse what used to be, with what could one day be again. It can be destroyed by doubts and knowing what someone was, and possibly is, capable of doing. It makes you question what can happen.
The second kind of love can be destroyed from the expectation of rather or not someone works towards who they say they wish to become. It can be destroyed from the lack of progress. It can be destroyed in the things that happen now, because they have nothing to base off of to truly know if that is something uncommon or rare for another person to do.
What both these kinds of love have in common is that both can be destroyed with knowledge and observation. Both these kinds of love can also be built with knowledge… and observation. It’s a matter of facing the fact one kind of love focuses on the before while the other kind focuses on the after. Both of them fail to find the balance of seeing what happens in the now, and that is what truly can destroy them.
