“There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice. ” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
This quote really struck me. Love is something so powerful that when you find it, you never want to let it go. We all encounter and experience different relationships in our lifetime and each one is special in its own way. The way I love my friends is so different from the way I feel in a romantic relationship, but I still use the word “love” to categorize my feelings. I think that everyone we cherish in our lives holds a specific place in our hearts, and we dictate our actions towards them based of that place. You can come close to feeling the same love twice, but I do believe that we will never experience an identical love to one we have already known. When we move on from one love to the next, we hold with us memories of our past relationship. As hard as we may try, it’s almost impossible to not compare at least one aspect of this past love to the new one, and when we do this, we realize that the two loves will never be the same. I think I base this off the fact that no two people in this world are the same. If we all felt one universal feeling of “love”, it wouldn’t have the amazing power that it holds.
