I dunno, I'm not much of a pill popper and most vitamins are chalky.
You're right though. Sometimes love can hurt, but that's only by circumstance. You'll find that hearts are broken a lot less than when people actually find love. That's my opinion, anyhow. I love to get love in return. Equivalent exchange. There's no point in loving a person who won't return the love. And that's only in a romantic sense. I have friends that I love to death, but I'm sure that a few don't feel the same way. But that's okay. I love my friends for the sake of love; to show them that I'm there.
Romantic love is a bit more complicated than that and that's why I've steered clear of it since my last relationship. Too much goin' on in that arena for me. I'd rather just share a platonic love with everybody. That way I know that--in a small way if you think about it on a larger scale--I've done something to make the world a somewhat better place. People need to be shown love and compassion. It's what builds trust amongst others.
For the most part, I love everybody... Save a few jack-a**es who like to disrupt my peace or those who've proved to be untrustworthy. But even those people deserve some kind of compassion... Just not from me. ^_^
