‘ if love can be chemically induced does it matter if the lovers will do the dry cleaning anyways? the point The Effect ( A singaporean theatre production) makes is that there is a difference between infatuation and love. the former can be kindled by volatile chemicals made to react under controlled situations, but love requires steady hard work unfazed by personal catastrophe.’
– Akshita Nanda
Reading this extract after my week of self imposed separation from k—- has given me so so much peace and clarity regarding how i feel towards him.
I still love him, but maybe loving him as a friend and person is a happier, healthier love.
Its tough to walk away from someone and for anyone else who is doing it, trust me as long as you ride through at least a week of heart ache, withdrawal and sudden rushes of tenderness, you can have a clearer mind to either return and love the person even more after, or make the right choices for yourself and him.
🙂 all the best in your search for peace!
