What’s love got to do with it?

I’m sure everyone has heard the famous Tina Turner song.

What’s love got to do, got to do with it
What’s love but a second hand emotion
What’s love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart
When a heart can be broken”

Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken. That line gets me each time. Each time I hear the song, a part of me agrees. The larger part of me, agrees. But then there is this small part, this tiny voice that comes out from inside, barely heard, that says 
“Oh child, if life isn’t about love, then what is it about?”

I probably don’t understand that a lot of people have bigger problems than this. That to a lot of people, ‘love’ is not something that comes naturally, because of various reasons. I apologize.


“What’s love got to do with it?”
Love has everything to do with it. Love is foolish. Love is blind. Love is stupid.
But, LOVE is what inspires poets to write. Love is what makes people accept you. Your flaws, your mistakes, your little broken pieces. 
Love makes the person choose you, again and again and again. Every single day. No matter what. 
Do not underestimate the power of love, my friend.
It has the power to break you in a second. To make you feel as if your insides were being tossed around. 
It is the same love that can heal you. That can make you feel like you could conquer the world.

“Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?”
Hearts break all the time, everywhere. That doesn’t mean that you give up. You need to walk this earth as if nothing that touches you can leave an everlasting mark. Are you hurting because someone you love won’t love you back? DON’T! 
Save it. Save the love for someone who will love you back. 
The heart is an endless pit, filled with this little thing called ‘love’. 
You can never run out of it, even if someone has sucked it all out of you, leaving you vacant, with this huge void.

Open that little door that has guarded your heart all this while. For as long as you try and shield away the pain, you shield away the love too.

Break down your walls and go into this world with all the love that you have to give and believe me, it will come find you.
