All We Want Is Love…

If you’ve never seen Christopher Titus, I would definitely suggest you go pick up his newest stand up, “Love is Evol”. See, he presents real life lessons in such a funny way; you might actually listen to them.

We seem SO stubborn when we hear anything resembling a life lesson. We just really don’t want to hear it. It’s almost as if, for us to hear it would make us less in some way. Like we can’t handle our lives or the situations we find ourselves in. I’m going to borrow heavily from Mr. Titus today. He’s like a hilarious Dr. Phil. :-)

Have you ever been in a bad relationship? HAHAHAHA…that’s like asking if you’re a living, breathing, human being. We’ve ALL been there. We’ve ALL been in that relationship with that person that we should NEVER have been in. We buried our heads in the sand and ignored ALL the things that should have been big red signs saying “GET THE HELL OUT NOW!”

So, why do we stay? Why do we let these people continue to tear us apart, moment by moment and day by day?

Because we’re all addicts. We want LOVE. And for that little drug called LOVE we will do damn near anything. We will stay with someone, trying to change them, trying to make the better, when every SANE person tells us to run. For that drug, LOVE, we suck it up. We hope it will be better. We hope that WE can be better. We take everything that is thrown at us and for a lot of us…we APOLOGIZE to that idiot for the things THEY did! You know what I’m talking about.

Why do we take it? What makes LOVE so powerful a force over us that we stay with those assholes?

It’s what we were made for. We are a species that is built for relationships. We want them. It’s a comfort to us and it hardwired into our brains to pursue it. We all want to feel special to someone. We want to know that someone cares and believes in us. That someone’s got our back in life.

“`Cause nobody wants to be the last one there.
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares.
Someone to love with my life in their hands.
There`s gotta be somebody for me like that.”
Nickelback – Gotta Be Somebody

So we take it and we suck it up and we hope that next month will be different, that next year will be good. And we stay. And, in the words of Christopher Titus…”THAT’S YOUR LIFE!”


How do we react when McDonald’s screws up your order? When someone cuts you off in traffic? When the cable is out? Does this get you thinking yet?

Because, guess what? You don’t get a rebate at the end of your life for staying with an asshole. Death doesn’t hand out coupons because you spent three years with that bitch. Wake up my friends!

YOU are worth being happy.
YOU are worth being respected.
YOU are worth being loved.

And let me close with a word to the other side. If YOU are that asshole, if you won’t pass this on to your significant other because you think they might wake up. You get one last chance. You’ve got a LOT to make amends for. You need to go to them and BEG for a chance to make it right. You need to do whatever it takes to make them feel special again. You need to take everything you THINK you deserve and throw it right out the F-ing window. On bended knees, you should welcome them home and sex them like you’ve NEVER sexed anyone else before. You need to make dinner, breakfast, and shower them with real love.

Because we don’t get a rebate. We only get one shot. Make it your best one.
