The Love-Lies!

He was a liar; he had said that ‘I am his life’”…she said while sobbing uncontrollably…     

………………

Well! When, in love, a man says “I can’t live without you” or a woman says “You are my world” then normally none of them is lying. Actually, they really mean it…they feel exactly that way in that moment. So, they are not cheating, they are simply feeling something out of ordinary, which unfortunately, can’t be felt for ever.

The truth is that “any extreme emotion, be it love or hate, can’t arise unless a person exaggerates a certain feature of the other person”. Yes! That exaggeration is essential to extreme emotions. And you can’t blame people for seeing things out of proportions, it just doesn’t qualify as deception.

So, if you had heard those words from someone for whom now you seem to be a nonentity, then don’t think that you fell for a lie. It’s just that…

………………

…it was an ‘Absolute truth’, in that transient moment of ever-changing life. 🙂
