Love is a mess. Let's be real. It was never meant to be perfect. Perfect is boring. And one thing love should NEVER be is boring. But if it's not boring it's crazy. And crazy love comes with issues and consequence. Just think about all the love sayings. One of the most quoted is "Love is Blind." It means all you can see is them. And that is dangerous. Let's talk about all the other senses love afflicts.

Redditor u/ohwhorable wanted everyone to have a chat about the impacts of love and it's ups and downs by asking.... They say love is blind. What other emotions have disabilities?


Look. Sit.

Fear is dyslexic and bored has ADHD. SamOFart

Lust. 

Lust has Alzheimer's. LeggyBald

It means when you have lust for someone, you forget all the bad things about them. Like in abusive relationships, the partner can be terrible but it doesn't matter, you forget it or switch blame. Raevin_

Pump Up the Volume....

Anger is deaf, you cant listen to reason. with1n0id

I think that sometimes it's good to be angry (not to be confused with rage or what one does in anger). It shows that you do care about something, that it's important to you. 22Savage671

Hangry....

Hunger has Tourette syndrome. Oyska_G

People with Tourettes tend to have uncontrollable tics. You can see for yourself there should be videos on YouTube. SAVE_THE_RAINFORESTS

Repeat Pain...

In some cases lust has carpal tunnel. Terrible_Golfer

I feel personally attacked. Wombat_cannon

Kind of painful, occasionally numb and sometimes tingly?

I think you should probably see a doctor my good internet stranger. ClockworkAnd

Silence....

Depression is mute

Edit: for everyone saying Depression isn't an emotion (some of them surprisingly rudely)...

de-pres-sion
noun

  1. feelings of severe despondency and dejection. varthalon

I think that the silence of depression can eventually become deafening in some instances. When you withdraw, people who love you miss you. They start to notice the lack of your presence. And suicide, there is such an empty void filled with pain because you're not there anymore. That kind of silence is incredibly loud when it comes to emotional pain and loss. I just hope we come to understand that someone cannot just snap out of it, and hopefully we as a society will get a better grasp on how to reach out to someone going through depression without telling them to "Snap out of it." SaltyWiring

Proud. 

Pride is tasteless. centrismhurts998

Yeah it's really frustrating hearing things like that. I hear people say how people should have humility, but if a person already feels they have no value then all you do is hurt them. Speaking for my recovery having pride in my emotions, in who I am, in what I can do, that I can do better, that I can be wrong, that I can be better has made all of the difference that I can actually be with people and to give back and support them.

Lack of control.....

Giphy

Anxiety is bedridden, you can't move. sunflowersnlove

Anxiety is really like the controller of so many other things. Some people puke, some pass out, some crap themselves, some yell, some hide, some run, some can't move, some ache, some go numb, etc.

Anxieties disability is lack of control. its_all_4_lulz

 Godspeed. 

Arousal has extremely poor impulse control. Candy_Cake_Jen

Prolonged pain. Been there. Godspeed. MisterBovineJoni

Brain: "She cheated on you and gaslit you in order to manipulate you into staying."

Penis: "she knows how to work it tho"

It's clear which one won. ArchetypicalDegen

The Killer...

Overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer. greendogelol

Slowly, gently, this is how a life is taken. Draeg82

It seems that it's far more common to hear somebody complain about their job than to hear them give a glowing review of their line of work.

How many times have you stubbed your toe because you weren't paying attention and banged it against some furniture? Hurts like hell, doesn't it? Have you ever slipped outside because you didn't realize the rain––or ice––on the roads would be so slick? You probably have (and hopefully you didn't bang yourself up too much). You probably hope no one was looking... to save yourself from certain embarrassment.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who've fared worse.

People were all too willing to share their experiences after Redditor 7937397 asked the online community,

"What is the stupidest injury you've ever gotten?"

Why are you mad? It's unhealthy. Do we even comprehend why we're miffed half the time? I don't, I've lost track. Although, I do get angry at the drop of a hat. So each origin can be arduous to track.

There really is no exact explanation as to why tempers can be set off. Of course, we are in sensitive times and emotions are are always at an edge, so that doesn't help.

But we really need to do some serious examining into what sets us off so easily. Anger is not an emotion that is sustainable or often has to do with logic. But let's try to find some...

Redditor u/KingOfJuiceBoxes wanted to discuss the times we've all been surprised by anger of others by asking:

What is the stupidest reason someone got mad at you?

Love is crazy. I've finally come to that conclusion. And marriage, you take your life in your hands and just throw caution to the wind in hopes of survival with that step.

When love falls apart, things can get real messy, real fast. And I've always been stunned by people's behavior when love subsides.

More often than not, it's like they become different people. Sometimes people are beset by tragedy and grief and sometimes people smile wide and move on. It's a coin toss.

But my favorite post divorce personality has to be the sudden super villain. Oh honey watch out for them!

Redditor u/hyperyog wanted to hear all the tea from the divorcees out there by asking:

Divorced Redditors, what is the craziest thing you or your former spouse did after divorce?
