One of the most complex and equally controversial subjects in the universe is: love. It’s the constant and very consistent contradiction within philosophers, the kind of shit that movies are made from and books written about, most likely—the inspiration for poetry, and far from lastly, the most opinionated subject of all time which not one person in history can truly prove anything about. To say that it is all speculation and all theoretical is to miss just how badly and how confused the world is when it comes to love.
Some people tell you to let whatever wants to come into your world, in, and, to let whatever wants to leave your world, out. Still, others will say that if one truly loves something then it is worth putting up a fight for. So what do we do? Do we allow something that we love so much fly away in hopes that if it loves us back the same it will some day come back? Or, do we fight for their love no matter what the cost?
With these things highlighted, one could say that you should find your own way because apparently there are no norms within the subject of love, and, there are certainly no wrongs or rights. Wrong or right is subjective anyway, no? What’s legal in one state of what the world knows as the United States, is completely illegal in another… And so love depends on the people involved, the situations and the circumstances, but there are no guidelines or foundations, no standard operating procedures of the heart, and definitely not a single model for the perfect love found anywhere on this earth.
MØ‘s Never Wanna Know is about a young girl reflecting on a long lost love. A love so intense that she would much rather not know anything about it and what’s taking place in their current life, because that would hurt her too much—because inside she has never truly stopped loving, but she knows that if she keeps it out of sight, then it remains out of mind.
But I never wanna know the name
Of your new girlfriend
Never wanna hear about it
Keep a stance away.”
We cannot say for sure if this ideology is a safer way to approach situations similar to MØ‘s, however we do know that in the long run she does regret the ultimate decision that led her onto this particular path:
I would have never let you go!
If I’d been a little older.”
I guess the safest bet for any advice on love is to never regret your decisions. That if you want to call someone that you have not heard from in a long time, or reach out to them somehow, that you do it because you won’t regret it. Too many times we live in fear, and we’ve said this so many times before: that fear makes us powerless, so snap out of it and go with your heart. I know that all of us aren’t built the same when it comes to love and how we see love; even romance for that matter, but we have to stop looking at one another for the right and wrong things to do, especially in love. We need to think for ourselves more and act on our own, knowing that like life there are no mistakes in love, only learning experiences that later become lessons when we reflect.
