The DARK SIDE OF LOVE and why MARRIAGE IS SO IMPORTANT

I almost published this on Valentine’s day and then I thought… THAT’S KINDA DARK. But it’s all for the greater good. I shall explain…

We all have a dark side to us. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, as it exists as a product of our environment, yet it is OUR BURDEN to carry. Some people have it worse, for others it’s smaller things perhaps, but there are aspects to our personality that we are not comfortable with. This could be ANGER, FEAR, JEALOUSY, HATRED, SADNESS, or any other painful combination of complicated emotions and genetic predispositions. Perhaps your mother had a nasty temper and now so do you. It’s not your fault, these behaviors were basically brainwashed into you before your brain had physically developed to a point where you could even hope begin to consciously regulate your mind.

This DARK SIDE surfaces when it does, and it’s not pretty. For most of our lives we yell at our parents and siblings, maybe close friends, people that we know will never leave us. Then the DARK SIDE flares up at our significant others, and usually the DARK SIDE CONQUERS and the relation ends in tears. But then one day, YOU FIND YOUR SOULMATE and then you marry her/him. What that basically means is…

YOU’RE STUCK TOGETHER FOR ALL ETERNITY!!

Well… supposedly, but nobody takes marriage seriously anymore and so it looses its SACRED POWER. But, IF YOUR HEART IS TRUE and you uphold the vows you make, then that means that you are bound together forever. Now here’s where the DARK SIDE comes in…

Now you have someone, who you can face the dark side with and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, for. It is your responsibility, as a married person, to COMBAT THE EVIL that lurks in your brains and that the devils’ whispers in your ears! It will be an arduous journey, and most wont dare to tread that road. But my advice to those that do would be:

Foster a powerful spirit by FINDING JOY in your CHALLENGES and GROWTH.
