Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
It's a statement that gets used an awful lot in our world but it's not always the case. It's long been taught by the book of love, but even scientists will suggest that absence truly does make the heart grow fonder... if the fondness is there. If the intimacy and closeness is there. Separation can also lead the mind to realize that the person you thought you couldn't live without.... well, you can. It tends to make people realize the motives in their actions towards people. If those actions are love then it makes the heart fonder. If the emotions are a little less positive then more realization and self reflection is going to come.
Separation is a wonderful and horrible thing.
In the myth of Pandora's box, the item at the bottom of the box was "hope" because it is the greatest of all evils... if you haven't read the tail you're like "what the fuck?"
Hope is the greatest of all evils because it prolongs a man's suffering.
Separation is horrible because it gives you clarity where you might not want it.
What will you discover when you're a part...
Were you keeping the girlfriend you've had for 6 months because you truly care about her or is it because you feel sorry for her because she kind of sucks at life and you're the only thing she has going for her. She makes you feel like a divine being and who doesnt like that, but do you love her? Or were you saying "I love you too" because of social obligation?
The world is funny. Words have defined means and then social means. Society has expectations and then unspoken rules. The black and the white but then theres between the lines. How do you know where things stand when you standing right there next to the person?
