Many people don’t consciously realize that they are looking for love Santa Blackcraft Cult create your own future ugly Christmas shirt, but I think everyone wants to experience it in some form. Many people hold themselves back because of fear, however, and I’ve been there. The good news is that once you get past the fear, a beautiful world full of love and adventure opens up. I want to address this phrase in your question “the pain caused by love.” This is a misconception that many people have, and it makes me sad. Love never causes pain. Never. The pain that people associate with love is caused by the fear that keeps you from experiencing it. For example, if a romantic relationship caused you pain, it’s because one or both people in the relationship had some irrational fears that broke the relationship apart (insecurity, jealousy, etc.) So don’t let fear hold you back! Go find love, in whatever form appeals to you most.

I’m not an alcoholic, and yet I enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. Many drinkers isn’t addicted. Some people may “switch one for another,” but plenty of theists are also alcoholics (as are many atheists), so it’s not the case that alcoholism and theism have some sort of one-to-one relationship.
