How long does love last and when does it bloom and shrivel? Love has two sides to it. There’s the fluttering of the heart and warmth. And wanting to become someone better than you are... Like nature that spawns life, love can uplift a depressed spirit. There are times when you are consumed by jealousy as well. The urge to have someone’s exclusive attention. And misunderstandings that arise from being insecure and feeling inferior... You cannot make a person love you back. Just like how you cannot choose when you will die, love is also like that. It’s something you have no control over. We grow and mature as people through love.
