I believe it is because we are control freaks and many people cant just let go. And I guess these "most controling" people would need a totally out of control exploding love experience indeed.
People exchange emotions like a coin. The coin has 2 sides. On one side, it is engraved "love". Many people collect coins getting attracted by this side. If you flip and see the other side of the coin, it is engraved "hate". Those who have seen and understood that most of the coins always have these two sides, perhaps become vary of "love".
Some people are afraid of love for many reasons. Fear of commitment, disapproval, failure or even feeling trapped. Sometimes the word "Love" may bring up unresolved fears related to intimacy.
It brings up deep emotions, with past hurts and pains, as well as present fears, and insecurities.
Love hurts, that why so many people is afraid of the word(
Some people may be afraid of the commitments that come with the word "LOVE".
I think that a lot of people are afraid of the word Love because it is so hard to define and therefore difficult to use without reservation. The meaning of Love varies a great deal from person to person based on what the person using the word believes it means and how the person hearing the word interprets it. Many people will often focus more on what the other person will feel when he or she hears it and make personal definition secondary and malleable. Still others are unwavering in what they personally believe and won't compromise that belief based on the requirements of someone else for fear of "cheapening" their emotional convictions. In most cases (either way, in between, or otherwise), people don't discuss and/or try to understand the meaning (or emotion) behind the word before they use it (or don't use it).
Love is many things ....
Love endures all things
Love is endl;ess and fulfilling....
Some find it easy and some never ever experience the true meaning of Love...I dont think its that people are afraid of Love its more they are afraid of the feelings the word instills in others and are afraid of the commitment that Love for another person may bring
Maybe because they have been burned before...that's what scares me. It is a great thing but when you put yourself out there and you get cut it's not the same next time around...but nothing ventured, nothing gained!
A lot of people just aren't willing to make the Love Commitment. It's just easier without the responsibility.
because when it abandons you it sometimes leave a wound that doesn't heal over time.
because they hate! For whatever reason love is not welcome, and if it is, it's not long term.........
After reading all these comments I must say. When you truly LOVE all of the above goes out the window. You are not sitting there thinking about things that are irrelevant. You wont go against the grain to sabotage something that feels so good as well as is powerful. Anyone truly in love will want more as well as all that is in store
I think Love has to be given freely and unconditionally without expectations. I think Love hurts because we "expect" in return when we give our love and then we get let down when our expectations are not met.
Love is a strong word,,,...most people think they know what it is but belive me they really don't.People are afraid to love because they are afraid to trust. . love always hurts you..........
People are afraid to love because they don't want to be hurt. On the other hand, how are they ever to know if they don't reach out a little? It's a tough one.
because they've experienced it already. how to love and how to be hurt.. but it doesn't mean that you will not love again..
i have my experience on that and i've learn that the best way to conquer your fear to love again.
comment me if you want my answer.. i swear, i've conquered my fear. and now i'm so happy overall happiness i mean..
I don't know...I guess it would be fear of failure. After people have been hurt they seem to stay a little gun shy. I for one am ready to allow myself to be vulnerable and invite someone into my life. My favorite quote about this is" it is better to have loved and lost , than to have never loved at all"
It may be that they will be giving a part of themselves away .... and there's the commitment aspect of course
With being in love has the potental of being hurt. Being hurt is heartbreaking.
