You Don’t Need To Know Why You Love Someone

Understanding things is possibly how we want everything to be. After all, we don’t want to look like the naive and ignorant fish in a sea of the most intellectual and developing beings. Usually, we only embrace something when we learn about it simply because we don’t want to make a fool of ourselves.

However, life is full of surprises. And occasionally, we encounter questions in life that we know no answers or experiences we can’t fully decipher what we did right or wrong to deserve.

It’s close to falling in love. We love a person but couldn’t get to the root of how, why, or till when. It’s just… you do. Sometimes we dwell to the idea as to why we could have fallen for someone who is completely opposite to us. We ask how we could have liked someone who didn’t even crossed half of our ideal boyfriend checklist.

But we just do fall in love despite all of it, don’t we?

Probably in the middle of the little chit chats in the 15-second elevator ride, or catching interest to each other’s shameful amount of consumption of coffee. We start to want to see them more than just those 30-minutes of coincidental jogging or want to possibly get to know them more than just graduate school classmates. Then little do we know we’re already starting to fall in love not just by the great company or the unending conversations or the mutual interests, but with the person. And that’s just what makes love a magical thing.

But despite the great feeling of love, we still ask too much questions and we’ll never run out of it. We ask why we love someone not knowing that in between all of it we start to question if we want to love that someone or we just love the feeling of being in love. We begin to ask if it’s not yet the time for us to fall in love, or even ever settle at all. We question too much of all these stuff that makes the simple feeling and happiness all confusing.

No matter how things are so difficult to comprehend, sometimes the better option is leaving it be. Because some things aren’t really meant to be completely understood to fully enjoy the feeling. And somehow, it’s because we are a little lost in confusion and stranded in the love zone that we fully enjoy the experience.

Love isn’t complicated. People are. We like to think too much, dwell too much and reside too much in the thought of “how come” instead of just allowing it to happen.

It’s best to leave love be and let it lead you than asking a lot of questions. It’s inevitable. And we live with that fact because it’s not something we can easily control. If we can, it rids us of living a life full of unpredictable excitement in our journey to a happily ever after. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
