Falling in love, and other pastimes
This is a post which asks the question,..are there different types of insanity?
I remember War and Peace. Pierre fell in love, but when he was older he looked back on this time as a time of madness.
I thought that was interesting, as I have fallen in love myself.
It could be described as a form of insanity. The only sense of reality I had was about myself.
I could see my own flaws very clearly.
I doubted that the other person would love me. I was right to doubt this, as I was not the type of girl they were looking for. I was too quiet and introspective.
I had no sense of reality about the other person. I saw them as perfect. They had no flaws.
When I look back now, they did have flaws, but I loved them so much I did not see that.
I fell in love a few times, and I think with people who possessed great beauty.
But that beauty blinded me.
There is a wish that the person will love you back, and a terrible disappointment when they do not.
After these feelings pass, we return to reality and sanity.
I remember coming back down to Earth, and glad that I had done so.
This has led me to believe that there are different forms of insanity.
I know how it feels to be depressed, and I also know how it feels to fall in love.
