people spend too much time worrying about things that don't actually matter imo

I worry about my toenails having too many ridges in them

It's all relative.

Love doesn't conquer homelessness or hunger or abuse in families or a dependence on drugs. Love doesn't feed your children. Love doesn't find you a job when you have been unemployed for a year.

Love is amazing and there's a lot that doesn't matter but love does not conquer all.

ridgey toenails shock

I worry that love doesnt conquer all.

It certainly does not help my feet. Gets out the Daktarin

Well I think unconditional love conquers all.

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:22:31

well in this country at least, i do feel it is the answer, as for example i don't really believe that people become drug addicts unless something terrible has happened to them and they also feel unloved unconditionally

and i thought even if you became homeless the council would put you in abed and breakfast or hostal, and while not ideal, at least its aroof over your head, and thats all that actually really matters,

although i suppose in the third world survial comes before anything else

Bit of a bummer for those who aren't all luvvied up, then.

There's far more to life than the over-romanticised pursuit of lurve.

<hi 5's mr blooms>

Kayano Wed 14-Sep-11 23:24:50

Wtf carried?! Your second
Post makes no sense to me?

Of course loved
People can become addicts ffs. That's why it hurts everyone so much

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:24:53

yes but all us parents have the best love ever, the purest unconditional love, life has to offer.

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:26:06

well what i mean is, i don't think someone becomes an addict, unless they actually deep down feel unloved.

not saying people don't love them, just how the addict percives it iyswim

Crosshair Wed 14-Sep-11 23:27:57

I dont agree at all with the 'all' addicts feel unloved. Im sure some do but not all.

Don't be ridiculous OP. Love doesn't cure cancer or prevent bankruptcy or get you off a parking ticket. And 'love conquers all' is an idea used as self-justification by stalkers, a lot of the time.
Loving and being loved by friends, family, pets or indeed a romantic partner is very nice and can make life better, sure, but it's not the answer to everything.

Have you been drinking OP? grin

Hatesponge Wed 14-Sep-11 23:29:17

At one time I truly believed love conquered all - so much so that I was going to hava a tattoo of that phrase in Latin - Amor Vincit Omnia.

That was until I realised actually it doesn't, and sometimes love, wonderful though it can be, isn't enough.


Hatesponge Wed 14-Sep-11 23:30:26

have not hava obviously...

AmIthatbad Wed 14-Sep-11 23:32:26

EdithWeston you beat me to it. I read the OP and thought "that's me well and truly fecked then!!!"

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:34:13

of course it doesn't cure cancer, but it help you get through whatever happens in your life good or bad.
same with bankrupcy.
if you have your family,you love them, they love you, you can do anything
and feel invinicble even though your not, and yes we all will die sometime.

i wish more people open their minds to spirtuality too.
a bit of gospel singing will really help bright people moods imo.

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:35:01

amithatbad andedith, you have children right?

wellthere you are then

carriedababi Wed 14-Sep-11 23:35:34

pic no i haven't been drinking


aldiwhore Wed 14-Sep-11 23:45:29

Love is grand. But sometimes it isn't enough for happyville.

EdithWeston Wed 14-Sep-11 23:54:12

I have children and a DH. My never married, single brother doesn't, nor do several of my never married, long-term very single friends. How do they fit in to this world picture? Especially the one who is orphaned?

Hopefully theorhaned one can still feel the love from her parents, even after people by, if you know they loved you, truely and deeply, you can still feel their love

I think a sense of faith would be great for these people and gving love to those less fortunate

Cocoflower Thu 15-Sep-11 00:07:54

I think I agree OP

Love is the most important thing in the world

Far better to face cancer or bankruptcy with people to support you and love you than alone. It makes it all less bleak and gives you strength.

Life often means little with no love.
