I Hate Love

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. And you give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

– Neil Gaiman

Truth: Love

“We have this idea that love is supposed to last forever. But love isn’t like that. It’s a free-flowing energy that comes and goes when it pleases. Sometimes, it stays for life; other times it stays for a second, a day, a month or a year. So don’t fear love when it comes simply because it makes you vulnerable. But don’t be surprised when it leaves either. Just be glad you had the opportunity to experience it.” – Neil Strauss

A Sorry

You know you should say something, but you don’t know what. You know you should do something, but you don’t know how. What you do know is that something is wrong, and that something hurts. What you do know is that it is all down to you, and that only you can make it right. And sorry is just a word, but a word doesn’t make things right. It can be meant and it can be felt, it can have tears and it can have sorrow, yet it’s still just a word. A word that doesn’t make things right.

A beautiful beautiful beautiful story…

Initially I wasn’t going to post this video here. This blog is largely about ‘work’ related issues, things, opinions and thoughts. Ideas and content that relate to advertising, marketing, PR, social, networking, media, brands and online doings. But this video is so much more than that. It is about love. About relationships. About connections and about a story. It is about something beyond everything else that we share online. It has so much more value than just being a ‘sharable’ video.

I must stop this soppiness; but this is beautiful.

Maybe someday you’ll have a story as beautiful as this one.
