“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
― Dr. Seuss

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

i agree with both these statements. Love is quite a challenge. If love wasn't so painful though, it woulldn't be as exciting or enjoyable. Without pain, suffering, and emotion, life would be boring... :l
