“Too much love will kill you
It’ll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won’t understand why
You’d give your life, you’d sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end… “— Queen
Have you ever thought about the people you care about: your kids, brothers, sisters, mother or father and told yourself “I love this person too much”?
Normally, you don’t, right? More often than not, you’d say “I love this person so much” and there’s a big difference in those words alone.
The words “too much” already signifies something more than it should be. It is linked with obsessive behavior that leads to hurting you and the person you love.
Excessive Emotions: Too Much Love
Excessive emotions are harmful that even the best emotion called “love” is no exception. As in other emotions, too much love may hinder what the true meaning of love is all about.
Romantic love tends to be rather temporary and shallow which focuses on the self rather than on the beloved. Hence, it has been argued that people who are in love are unwise.
When people love too much, they get blinded by love, they act improperly and selfishly and that’s when the real problem in loving sets in.
In spite of the fact that it is complicated to define what constitutes excessive love, saying that love is “too much” already means that harm has been done either to the lover or the beloved.
It is important to consider other things since having excessive emotion is not what love really is. You might be asking: Is it really dangerous to love someone? The truth is, love depends on how you perceive it.
What is True Love?
Love is such a subjective word. Everybody has their own definition of love. As humans, we have different characteristics.
A person cannot be all good or all bad. We are both. True love begins in accepting the imperfections of a person.
Real love is indescribable, incomparable, unwavering and intense feeling of passion and devotion for a person. It is deeper than just physical attraction.
5 Sure Signs that You Truly Love Someone

You’re not afraid to truly be yourself
You will be willing to share your true self fully and completely and you won’t feel the need impress. Best of all you have someone who you can tell all your thoughts without worrying what they’ll think.
You keep your promises
You will love making them special and the idea of letting them down hurts you more than your partner will. There will also be no secrets between you and your partner.
