Cruel Love

I feel lost inside myself

cruel love

Love is the greatest feeling and it’s one of the most magical things on earth but despite its magic, it also has its cruelties. It is a treacherous thing. One moment, it will make you feel that you’re floating on cloud nine but all of a sudden, it will make you feel like you’re in hell. The following instances kill and the reasons why love is cruel:

#1 it is an unrequited love. No matter what you do, that person won’t love you back.


#2 All your efforts to show how much the person means to you are all wasted and not appreciated.


#3That person keeps on pushing you away.


#4 You keep on missing that person but s/he doesn’t even bother to think of you.



That person only sees you as a friend, youngest brother or sister.


#6 That person is just using you as an instrument to forgot his/her painful past.


#7 When you admit your feelings, that person suddenly walks away and you become somebody that s/he used to know.

#8 Maybe you both love each other, but you are not meant to be together. There will be no chance for it.


Broken heart

See? just like the line in Taylor Swift’s ‘Mine’, ‘Why we bother with love if it never lasts?’ Love is so cruel. It loves playing games with people’s heart and loves striking Achilles’ Heel Of the hearts. It loves seeing us at our most vulnerable point.

Despite its cruelty, we fall in love because it is really inevitable. We choose to fall in love because our hearts can’t help it. It is part of our life. It’s treachery and cruelty are the attributes which make falling in love a great fall.There is that spice in love. If love is not cruel, how could we learn? Be strong? And realize/appreciate what happiness, loneliness, laughter, and pains are?

The cruelty of love makes it more magical. Just like in a magic show, there are always tricks before we see the actual performance, the real magic. Just like in love, we also have to be in pains first before we can find the actual happiness.

Hi! I’m Vinay, a twenty-something Blogger who is just trying to inspire people to live happier. As someone who's riding the roller coaster of life with his partner loneliness, my goal here is to show you that there's light at the end of any struggle and to be your bff...even if it is just virtually! (: So grab your cup of coffee, Gin! (or some wine!) and let's get chatting...


    • Yeah that also happens. Sometime you expected a lot because you have done so much for them but then you know what happens.. Thanks for the read. Have a lovely day mate 🙂

  1. I think this is an interesting take on love, but I’d have to say (with respect) that I disagree on some level. Love itself is not cruel. It is not treacherous. Perhaps unreciprocated love is burdensome, cruel, or even treacherous, as you say, but to say that love itself is those things is misleading. The hurt comes when we do not love correctly, or when someone does not return (reciprocate) the love we have for them. But this is not a result of love being cruel. Love is beautiful, self-sacrificing, it does not envy, and it does not insist on its own way. The hurt is a result of precisely a lack of love. If love were in fact cruel and treacherous, then it seems evident that to add love to a situation would be bad – perhaps even horrible. But we can see that adding love into any situation is always a good thing. Therefore, as I said earlier, I think I’d have to respectfully disagree with this take on love.

    Enjoyed the thought-provoking read though. Good day!

    • Thanks for raising your point up. I would love to discus on it.
      I think LOVE is not merely a single word, their are enormous amount of different feelings attached to it.
      Treacherous and cruelty are just an part of it. I agree that love itself is not cruel but some part of it does, not every time you can add love to the situation and make it good, If that happens all the time break-ups and fights would never happened. I agree that most of the times hurt comes when someone you love doesn’t reciprocate but I don”t agree that hurt is a result of an “lack of love”. We got hurt when we know that the person we are going to fall in love with is only going to use you but still you fall for s/he, we got hurt when someone hurts us and we have to forgive them simply without even telling them that you hurt us. This is not because of a lack of love it just love.
      I think maybe that’s what life is, It play games with you when you are not even in the mood.
      It’s good that you have a good view on love or you don’t get hurt on the life’s journey or maybe you are one of the special one’s who are even happy in one sided love and can even survive in their own world or you can say hopelessly romantic. Have a lovely day Christopher! Nice to have you on board 🙂

    • When we fall in love we are on cloud 9 where everything seems beautiful but then life comes to show us the reality and it chew us up like a chewing gum and spit us out. Then our heart breaks and we fall from cloud 9 to hell. Maybe sometimes we do need that kick to realize that this world is full of shitty people and we need to be careful.
