I was lost until I came across this quote . This is true and I think I am happy . No expectation. Ready to move on for a new life. But with love safe in my heart

Could fulfillment ever be felt as deeply as loss? Romantically she decided that love must surely reside in the gap between desire and fulfillment, in the lack, not the contentment. Love was the ache, the anticipation, the retreat, everything around it but the emotion itself.”

Kiran Desai, The Inheritance of Loss

This makes me think too hard! :) For a minute, I tried to answer the question of what love is. It's too complicated, because it is an emotion that is prompted and mixed with other emotions. I live and absorb as much as I can and love follows or happens.

That's true - It's an emotion mixed with other emotions. But amidst loss and pain, sometimes you feel a happiness which tells you that you have truly loved.
