Love = Happiness: Good thing or bad?

LOVE, such a small word that comes with so much baggage. It can make you crazy, mad, smile and cry all at the same time. But most important of all, love can make you HAPPY. Thus bringing the question is that happiness all worth it and is it a good or bad thing?
Well.....Good because, well who doesn't want to be happy? Is that not the thing that everyone looks for, happiness? Happiness makes you want to get up in the morning. Happiness allows you to overlook things that usually annoy you. Happiness makes you smile and feel confidant....So, why would it be a bad thing?
Hmm...let's see. Well, happiness can sometimes become annoying to others around you thus pushing those that you love away. Happiness can sometimes make you choose between what makes you happy and what makes others happy. And, as quickly as happiness comes, it can leave, sad and scary but true. So what do you do?

Personally, I am doing what's right for me and what makes me happy. I like to get up every morning and feel good, that's healthy! Yes I may annoy others with my happiness, but I do it with hope that they'll be lucky enough to feel the same thing I'm feeling. If my friends are truly my friends, they shouldn't make me choose between my happiness and them and instead should just be there for me as I have always been there for them. And most of all, yes there's that chance that this happiness may one day end and I might get hurt in the process, and it is scary as hell!! But I stop and think about something. How would I be right now, if I didn't have this happiness with me? I think that I'd rather take that chance and enjoy it right now that I have it rather than living with that regret of wondering what would have been.

A very wise person once said that we shouldn't be scared to live because then we'll miss out on great things. Well living in the moment is what makes me happy, so that's what I'm doing.
Here's to being happy in love! And remember...."Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness". ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
