Love is something that is hard to find and when most people find it, they don’t know what to do with it. In Alain de Botton’s “Why You Will Marry the Wrong Person”, he discusses how people find relationships depending on the types of relationships people have as children. This is different from the beliefs of Marguerite Fields, who believes the typical idea of love and marriage, which is that two strangers can meet and fall in love and have a ‘happily ever after’. Because De Botton thinks that familiarity is mainly what we seek in relationships, he would probably agree with most of Fields’ points about love. However, he seems to have a strong opinion about marriage and why he believes it’s wrong, which might make him reject Fields' quest for
I feel as if this still happens currently because us teenagers get all absorbed in the thought of “love” that you need someone to complete you, when they haven't even completed themselfs yet. that is were self worth comes into play, i think most teenagers that have romantic relationships do not know their self worth yet so they feel empty which makes them think they need someone to fill that empty hole. The bad part about that is you can't love anybody until you love yourself. when one doesn't know their self worth they allow people to do things that they truly don't deserve like getting treated poorly, abused, manipulated and get into unhealthy relationships. Another thing that comes into play is young people not knowing the difference between love and lust, lust is have a very strong sexual desire for someone love is an intense feeling of deep affection for someone.
One of his quotes from Fake Smiles is, “We hate ourselves because we run from the people we love, and we all hold onto the past cause we miss what it was.” This quote from this song explains how people fake how they feel. They put on a smile and isolate themselves from the ones they love. They say they are okay when truly they are breaking down inside. They fake it. This song has many inspiring and relatable quotes and the whole song is about how some people lose their self because of what this world has become.
Sadly, people can pass on without leaving much of a legacy behind; questions may have gone unanswered, words could have been left unsaid. Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
Not being good enough is a fear felt my many, young or old, single or in a relationship, working or unemployed, all feel it at one point in their lives. This is especially true to those who are in a unrequited devotion, who know that the person they desire so much do not feel the same attraction. Once the one whom they love leaves them isolated, however, the devoted become obsessive, wishing for their partner to come back, fall into depression, and at the worst possible scenario, become self destructive. All of these feelings and traits are found in both “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and (Love Song, With Two Goldfish) by Grace Chua. These feelings of loneliness, isolation, and separation are emphasized and developed in both text with use of diction, metaphor, and imagery.
These ideas of how many people give limitless love and loyalty to someone, yet wanting some attention/credits, as they deserve it. This shows us how sad it is for many people to not get treated fairly because what they give doesn’t get returned to them. In the end Monique is so into making sure everything is to be perfect for Jordan, and standing up to him. Doesn’t Monique deserve at least a little back from Jordan? There are so many people we hurt because we aren’t aware of the love we have.
In the article “Stop Trying to be Happy,” Mark Manson states that nowadays, people are striving so hard to be happy, while happiness is something in their self. However, most of them do not realize that when they do something they like, that is not a happiness, it just a pleasure.

We have all at one point or another have been the person to sabotage a relationship, or on the receiving end of it–and we know that it doesn 't feel good. Good or bad most of people either don 't know how to articulate their feelings, or they have a hard time articulating how they feel about another person, especially to the person that they care about. Two people can really care about each other, but because one or both isn’t acting on those feelings the relationship may never have a chance to reach its greatest potential.

The speaker’s reaction exemplifies how the small act of being recognized by one’s “love” can cause a rush of emotions. These emotions are just some of the feelings that the passion of love can bring. The usage of hyperboles and personification proceeds to instill a reminiscently obsessive tone which arises from the fact that he continues to admire and feel a passion for her, long past his childhood. This is just an example of one instance that love can be felt, even though the girl he is speaking of does not feel a sense of affection towards him. In conclusion, the usage of personification and hyperboles in “True love,” exemplify how love comes in unique experiences, and differs from person to person.
