When They Say They Don't Believe In Love

Aha! One funny thing about Facebook™ is that people (including me) tend to put ideologies and philosophies on their status updates. Of course the most favourite type is the one where people talk about what they are doing or how they are feeling, but obviously that is normal even outside of the famous social network. But ideologies and philosophies...well those are heavy.

I have seen so many status updates and I believe you have too. And I'm pretty sure I won't be the only one who says, "What? They don't believe in love?" Yes, I'm talking about people who say they don't believe in love and will never need one. I mean, why? Why is that? Why do they refuse to believe in love when it is practically the first thing a human, like us, will see when he or she gets born?

For this question, I have come up with several explanations. Maybe they are right, maybe they aren't. But let's have a look, anyway.

1. They want to be cool like the rockstars. They assume the rockstars don't waste their time on falling in love. Perhaps they have forgotten that even a rockstar has a wife and several kids, and they aren't gathered by hitting a guitar on someone's face.

2. They just got out of love. They find it hard to accept. They are hurt and don't want to feel the same again in the future. Perhaps they have forgotten that when they first learned how to ride a bicycle, they fell a few times but that didn't stop them from trying again.

3. They got rejected. They believe the world is not fair and love is just another lie. Perhaps they have forgotten that faith cannot be earned without doubts, and acceptance cannot be gained without rejection.

Well I'm sorry to say this, but these kind of people are lying. They say they don't believe in love when the fact is, they are the ones who need it most. Deep down in their heart, they want someone to prove them wrong.

We learned about love immediately when we were born. How do I know? Well ask yourself how you were made. You were created in you mom's womb with the very seed from you dad. How did that happen? Because they loved each other, and your existence is now the living proof of that. You being here in the first place shows that love does exist. How can you say otherwise? I mean, you weren't made out of a stone. What are you, Sun Wukong?

As usual, feel free to disagree.

To those who once loved and lost, or tried to love and were rejected,someone who can make them believe again is hard to come across, and the probability of losing again is too oppressing. An escape would be to announce that they don't believe in love, I suppose, to protect themselves. It's painful to lose,so is it wrong for one to say that he does not believe in love to avoid being hurt again until the time is right to get back up?

phyto hystrix: from my point of view, whatever reasons you're having, whatever situations you are in, none of them has the right to make you lie to yourself. because it's not right.

there are people who have the same concept, who want to protect themselves, but say, "i'm not yet ready to commit" or "i'm not prepared to walk the same path at the moment". but to say "i dont believe in it"...?

it's like you dont like eating vegetables for a certain reason and you tell people, "vegetables aren't good for health."

just an opinion, though. :)
