What is love to you?- Part 2

Fear of Love can Make you Break your own Heart!

Is love in romantic relationships held together by fear of being alone?

Sticking with someone because you are afraid of dying alone is not an original concept. How do you know that you are with someone because you actually love them and it’s not because you are scared to death of being alone?

It’s especially harder out there for older women to find a new love and I wrote why here:

Is love in romantic relationships held together by fear of being alone?

Let’s analyze the words to ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ by Foreigner, Shall we?

Suggestion: Play the youtube video of the song below while reading the following lyrics…it’s more fun that way.😄

Lyrics

I’ve gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

This mountain, I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds, I see love shine
Keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life, there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I mean, isn’t fear being alone the motivation for finding love here?

I Want To Know What Love Is (Official Music Video) by Foreigner

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me — by Foreigner

In Part 1 of ‘What is Love Anyway?’ I wrote:

Sometimes people love because “they love how loving you make them feel about themselves.”

What if you just don’t want to feel scared to death of being alone?

Is it so bad that is one of the reasons you are with someone you “love”?

At first glance, that sounds really fucked up. However, It’s totally natural to fear not being loved because being loved is a basic human need.

BUT

Fear of love can make you break your own heart!

That’s why:

I wanna know what love is…I want you to show me!
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me — by Foreigner
