Only if you learn from it.

Yes, because even if your horribly hurt by the experience you’re still able to learn from it and find out things about what you want or don’t want in the future and about who you are. Sometimes you gotta kiss a bunch of frogs to find your prince.

I’ve been loved all my life, so I can’t really compare, but I think love is probably better.

yes but only if you experienced to be loved BACK too.
otherwise, there is really no point.

If you think it is better to lose your love, try it.

I guess if you find love again, then yes. But I guess it comes down to the message of the story about Buddha and the woman with the mustard seeds. It’s part of life.

Definitely. Otherwise, I’ve lost 22 years of my life with nothing to show for it.

If i ever lose what i have i will wake up the next morning and i’ll do it all over again, even better, so i guess is better have and lose…

Yes, by many degrees

I hesitate to answer yes, but i will.
Love sucks, and that crippling loss leaves lifelong scars. I know I will never have those feelings as intensly as I did when I was young, before I got burned, but I think you cherish love more afterwards.
Wow, thats a lot of serious feelings. Better end with the 2nd grade humor that gets me through the day.

to be honest, i go back and forth with this one
i can’t imagine losing the love I have right now and it’d prob kill me
then again this has given my life so much more meaning

I have loved and lost. The losing was truely hard but the love was amazing. I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t experienced that love.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Yes, it really is better. A life without any love at all would be a hollow experience, in my opinion.
