I don’t know about life being a lie, but I do feel love is so often an joint illusion two people participate in. We see what we want to see in the other person, or have unrealistic fantasies of what the relationship can do for us. When in reality, so often it’s just two people trying the best they can before they break apart again. I also don’t believe unconditional love is real.

I do not believe in unconditional love either. I believe to some degree we have proven that over time.

Something I posted in another thread:

Love is just a feeling, some kind of emotion. It's the only one is science that we have yet to be able to explain where it comes from. Love comes and goes like a virus. (hands you a tissue) There one moment and gone the next.

In the end, I think love is more of a connection than anything else. When we connect with someone we can feel a deep fondness for that person and when the connection is strained or frayed like anything else in this world...the connection can be lost.


I saw life is a lie for the reasons people say we are here...I say it is a lie for the lies they tell us during our existence.

I also say life is a lie for the seer fact that I often wonder upon waking am I even real? Once again, in another thread:

Do you exist because you say I exist? Or do you exist because you say that you do? In turn, does the couch only exist because I am there to view it and if I look away would it then be non-existent? And if I was to die would the reality that I know it (say you for instance) then cease to exist because I no longer exist? Am I real or am I only real because you say so? Or because I say that I do? If our mind is just energy and energy can then transform what is to say that I am not just a memory of a time gone by and as I type this I am already dead.

And in thought process I can view life as a lie.

This is my rational.

As for love....love is a lie...thank you and come again!

Well yes lots of relationships end. It seems to me the only ones that last are where mundane people marry and that's it. They just live it as that is what life has trained them to do. Most people are not even aware of the reality. Life is not a lie. What you see around you all day. Those people are not experiencing reality they are sheep in a pen. So life is real and it hurts. Wish I was a sheep

Happiness is real but is only really achievable via a huge fight and still you may not get there but it's worth it. Sheep are happy eating sheep food

I was the same for years. Real love hurts as much as it blesses as you feel that person's pain. It's about fighting to have more blessing than pain

The fickleness of love is easy when you don't really know a person, butterflies in the stomach, A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, betrayal is the end of it.

Depending on what we mean by life yes it can be a lie. The way human view things are mostly lies. Biological chemicals make you feel and act differently while reality is a different thing. One keep lying to themselves to be distracted and continue their life, its just a biological function to avoid death, without lies it will be clear how life really is and the rational escape will be hard thing to do to most people. Reality is a very hard thing to accept and many will escape and call it negative.

Life is a lie....love is a lie.

I have often thought if I was in the wedding biz and had my own venue...when everything was over, I would be compelled to say:

Love is a lie...thank you come again!
They are both lies and just cause pain.

It is real. Hit your thumb with a hammer and you instantly create it.

You cannot instantly create happiness. It arrives randomly, never arrives for some and is as temporary as a rainbow when it does.
Poetic way to put it....

Good one.

But: If you can create something instantly or not doesn’t make it real or unreal.
