Love is like Interferon

did you know when you’re sick you’re most likely not sick at all? you experience all the common side effects, but in reality you’re not infected. that’s what Interferon does. it’s a chemical in the body that is used as a signal, sending out the message to surrounding cells to warn of a virus nearby. this secretion of this enzyme slows down RNA replication, making the virus unable to reproduce itself and spread. this process is a beautiful reality of human life, and is encoded in our very existence, much like love. 

did you know when you’re “in love” you’re most likely not in love at all? you experience all the common side effects, but in reality you’re not a victim of Love. that’s what lust does. it’s a veil placed over your rationality that is used as a facade, sending out the message to others that you’ve found your one and only and that you couldn’t be happier. this confession slows down your ability to think rationally, making it easy to be blinded to the truth and vulnerable to heartbreak. this process is an unfortunate reality of human life, and is written in our destiny like DNA in our bones.
