In some ways, love can be very much like a emotional tumor. It grows within and throughout your life, often spreading uncontrollably, permeating so many aspects, thoughts, hopes, dreams, and memories. But sometime love can be harmful. And when it has grown to be very harmful, the only options are to live with a pain that can never fully heal or to cut it out entirely. But sometimes, it has spread so thoroughly through your life that to cut it out would be to cut away your dreams for the future and a significant portion of your past. Sometime it is impossible to truly cut it out of your life, and it even if you could excise everything that it has touched, it would take away so much of what makes you who you are. A man (or woman) without a past is fundamentally unstable. Love can be an emotional cancer.
