Love vs. Lust
A human being has two major organs in their body, the heart and brain. Only one of them can actually feel love for something or someone. Love and lust can make you do crazy things in life and failure is one of them. When you are with someone and you think that it is real but then again you ask yourself is this reality or is it just something just to get by. Sometimes I would just like to go into the past and change everything from the beginning because if I knew what I know now then I would be better off as a person. Two years ago I was in a state of mind where I was the happiest I have ever been in my life all because of that one special someone. I talked to a guy through friends I talked to him every night on the phone before we met in person, which lasted about two weeks. We never talked about each other’s past relationships because it never mattered to both of us. Then when we met I automatically fell in love with him, we were exactly alike it was unbelievable.

    Alcibiades is a slave to love because he pursues unrequited love for a person who is simply of different form. The pursuit of the ladder is deemed a unique pursuit—only possible for people with god-like characteristics. It is impossible for Alcibiades to fathom climbing the ladder because it exists in an entirely different universe and requires ideal conditions. Alcibiades and Aristophanes share a view that is relatable, that can be understood. It is not one account being superior over the other, it is one account being on a level of human understanding and the other…

    I have known you since second grade and we made so many wonderful memories together. I wish I could say that we still have a friendship like we used to have, but times have changed and you continue to amaze me with the decisions you have been making. Some are good and some are bad, but mainly bad because you are pretending to be someone else. If only you could see what you have become in my eyes, because you would finally realize that you are not who you act like you are and you need to stop mirroring people in order for you to fit in. Rachael, I have known you since second grade and we are now in our Freshman year of college.…

    I felt like I was on top of the world with him. Towards the inevitable end though, I notice his change in attitude when he was around me. He started to tell me over text things that I never thought I would hear. Stuff like , “You need to stop wearing low cut shirts, you looked like a girl that gets around today.” And he started saying, “Stop wearing makeup it looks bad on you, and also, stop talking to Hunter.” Hunter was my best friend that I knew since 1st grade. But of course I was so blinded by what I thought was love that I listened to him.…

    Once the difference between the two are recognized, the possibility of a love immune to tragedy can be better understood. Infatuation should be looked upon as a sort of longing or desire for a certain possession. These possessions are not actually ours to have, for they always fall vulnerable to circumstances beyond the agent’s control. Infatuation simply mirrors the idea of love. It is fragile and jealous.…

    Control is the opposite of trust, and in relationship we can give all of our love, and security, but however being “overprotected” drives your significant others away.
