"The Great Gatsby- The Truth About Love"

True love is never easy, never free, never priceless. There are many diverse versions of love. All types of love initiate with a mere infatuation. Some rare types of love evolve into lifelong commitments, which are supposed to build a foundation of eternal trust. Nothing ever comes easy and if it does, then it's not true love. I always believed that the best love stories involve fairytales with happy endings, but after tonight, I have faith in the opposite. Life isn't about the happy endings. It's about the experiences that alter your life forever. We all pass through thrilling events that alter our lives forever. These experiences make us stronger individuals. If you haven't gone through changes or struggles in life, you haven't lived or loved. Love is what makes life worth living. If you haven't loved, then you have lost the greatest gift from God. People think that real love involves faithfulness and devotion without mistakes. The truth is that we are all human and are incapable of living a "perfect" life. We all go through phases that involve infidelity and broken trust. If you haven't experienced any of these things, then you are the biggest liar on the planet. We'd like to think that our future husbands or wives will be the only loves of our lives. Lets face it, that is not always the case. Many people have loved before and never fully recover from that love. Certain circumstances tear them away from those people, which breaks them apart. In turn, they are forced to move on. Moving on does not mean letting go. It is often more complicated than that. "The Great Gatsby" reveals the pain that revolves around the experience and the strings that people are willing to go through for their great loves. Even when you move on, you still think about your first true love and what they accomplish in their lives. I'm not saying that your first love isn't going to be your last love, but a majority of the time, it isn't the case. You remember that person on every special day of your life. You wonder if you'll ever see them again and what will happen if you do. If your life changes and you do run into that "first love," will it affect your life? If you ever truly loved them, your breath will stop. Depending on where you are in life, you may choose to spend time with them to decipher if you want them in your life. If the outcome is positive for both parties, life will be complete. It's a 50/50 chance where no one truly wins. You must fight for what you believe in until the end. Everything will work out in the end and if it doesn't, like Jake Gatsby, you have to have hope. Hope is all you can do. If it doesn't work out, at least you've had that person for that moment. Those moments are the unforgettable memories that are kept in the realm of our hearts.
