Love is war

Love is a war War is usually used as negative word. Usually happening between two things. Initiated by human kind. But what if I told that love is a war? Two people fighting to give each other everything they can. Shooting each other with love words. Battling over who loves the other the most. Fearing to hurt each other. It is the best, safest and most relaxing kind of war. Unlike every war, love war doesn’t have a winner or a loser actually both sides win. And it is awful and hard to end. Love war consists of some battles if you managed to get through them then you are qualified for being a side in this war. I will give you some examples of those battles. -Communication: You know that point when all you talk about with your partner is how are they doing and how their day went that’s the bullet that kills any relationship. In my opinion, communication is the key to any successful Relationship. -Trust issues: A very common thing in relationships today-especially for those with previous experiences with love- is having trust issues and it’s subconsciously carried into the next relationship. -Selfishness: when a person typically puts his/her own needs first, demanding their needs be met or is selfishly taking what he/she needs. -Childhood wounds: We all walk out of our childhoods sensitive to certain things – criticism, feeling controlled, not appreciated, feeling neglected. Our partner unknowingly triggers these old wounds – sounds angry about something you did; suggests too strongly what you should do or doesn’t comment on the nice dinner you spent hours making -Long distance: Not all are going through this battle but it is common actually and can develop jealousy towards their partner’s local friends, often complaining that they spend “too much time” with them. There is also the risk of your partner developing an intimate relationship or falling in love with someone else while you are away. ​I know I didn’t address any solutions because there isn’t any relationship like the other and every couple has their own relationship battles and love war so, they every couple require an unique solution that they find together. Finally, as the great poet Auden said, “Love each other or perish”
