Love… Nothing new to see here.
But i just want to remind myself about love.
That love, sometimes can be a mirage.
It tricks us into thinking that we are in love with someone
but in fact we are utterly oblivious to the truth.
Former flames or flames that seek to reconnect.
they are prone to the fallacy
of loving the person who they knew before
and not the person in the present.
Such a fallacy is committed usually when people
can’t let go of the past or can’t accept that people change.
Burning flames, young and old, are open to the dangers
of committing the fallacy of loving one’s idea of the person
and not who the person really is.
Lovers of the brightest flame always want to be the best.
They try to project an image of themselves to their partners
so that the flame burns on.
But the brightness of the flame might be blinding you
and the image if your lover might be far from the truth.
Dying flames, these are still open to danger.
They are in danger of committing the tragic fallacy of
loving our hopes for our diminishing relationship.
During dire times we try our best to stay positive
and dying flames may fool us into loving the hope
that our partners will change for the relationship.
And the extinguished flame of a spent match…
The fallacy of confusing hope from hopeless.
