Euphoria: The Savior and The Killer
I have always wondered why people do seemingly stupid acts when they feel that they are in love. Why very sensible and otherwise very social and cultured people give up their existing personalities and just head on for reshaping the way they are not? The answers are too complex for me to write but yes I would like to share why, I think, people become donkey piss tequila and chase wild gooses, when they feel that they are in love?

We humans always have the option to to make a choice. But we are always in dilemma when it comes to determine which of the feelings, we have, is the better one. The dilemma is not in choosing the option but in judging which of them will prove to be a better one in the future. The stakes are high when we are dealing with emotions. Unlike material things, emotions are an integral and most important function that shape our personality. Our persona, subjectivity and our confidence is at stake. 
Most of our personal decisions that cannot be based on rationalism or facts, are the hardest one to take. It’s easier to take a decision when we are sitting on a pile of subjective or objective data. But the situation becomes volatile and unpredictable when we are forced to decide on the basis of emotional and imaginary data that is accumulated by our feelings and intuition. 

When one is falling in love, the feeling is euphoric and this euphoria is more sedating than any sedating compounds an anesthetic will use.  This euphoria provides confidence and impetus to move forward on an expedition that might seem hopeless. Most of the lovebirds, if you have noticed, might seem lanky fellows to you or they might look like awesome human beings replete with huge confidence in their face. Either of this state is just reflection of the failure/success of their confidence.
Now lets get back to the point when one starts having that feeling- of being loved or being in love. The very start- it might be that blissful smile or some act of generosity or mischief. It is that moment where one looses sense to sensibility. That is the point where one should ideally pause the happening of events and think. Think and choose from the options one has.

It might sound a bit of  theoretical blabber but what I am trying to suggest here is something like the contemplation that one does before committing suicide. Just go through that long train on events (sad and happy) that are destined to come in the near future and ask yourself if you are you ready for them?  Whatever you decide, do not forget to think and think and think. Read the following quote from Charles Bukowski– Its insightful.

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery – isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.

If you have chosen to chase or if you have decided to let go the chase- Euphoria is still there. The feeling of your love being reciprocated is rewarding, but the whole point here was about the end. If you are one of those adventurers who take things as they come- move on.

But, if you are one of those careful thinkers who go deep into seclusion when broken, than its better you decide to give up the chase. You will still enjoy euphoria. Remember numbness is also a variant of euphoria- it makes you more kind to people around you, people who care for you. It stings, tries to kill you and the continuous pain helps you in translating the pangs of those around you- which you had otherwise been neglecting. Keep on cherishing the feeling of the loss till the after-glow lasts.

Its important to realize when its over and when its time to let go. Just let it go.  Don’t be an Ass!

I hope this makes sense, leave me a comment below.

A Synopsis Comment from a Friend

 “enjoy love while its floating, and remember it will fade away someday and you should be ready to let it go when it disappears. Else that very euphoria of love might lead you towards adverse consequences!”
