Love Is A Beautiful Thing…But It Can Blind You! By Michael Baisden
There’s always that moment that you reflect back on when you knew something wasn’t quite right. Sometimes it’s a subtle thing your partner says or does that raises an eyebrow. Meanwhile, that alarm goes off inside your head saying, “Run for your life!” Okay, maybe its not always so dramatic, but you know what I mean, right? That’s called your instincts. The question is, why do we constantly ignore them? Each time we do, we pay a price.
Love can do that to you; it can make you believe the impossible is possible. It alters reality. Love can make you see potential where there is none. It changes unacceptable habits into tolerable ones and makes you believe you’re compatible with someone when you’re not. Love is so powerful that it can make you ignore the advice of your friends, your family and your own instincts telling you this person is not right for you, and yet you move them into your home, buy them a car, pay off their debt, take care of their children and put up with abuse. That’s how powerful love is. Or as Sade put it in her song, “Love Is Stronger Than Pride.”
