Anyone who has gone through the agony of losing someone he/she loves so much would still wish against all odds to have that love back again. But sometimes, a love lost is a love gone forever. No amount of hope can bring back to life a relationship that just died a natural death. Set yourself free, let your hearts spread its wings and fly. Remember, it may rain for 40 days and 40 nights, but still it will not rain forever. One day, the pouring will stop and there will be plenty of branches where you can find rest. One of these is where you will build your nest and start over again. It’s never too late. You may find love and lose it but remember, when love dies, you never die with it.
We all fall and make wrong decisions, but our mistakes are not meant to bury us deep in misery, but to teach us the valued lessons of life. Loving is always a learning process. With love, we learn how to care and sacrifice, we learn to share and reach out, we learn to be unselfish and sometimes give more than we can. Then, when everything doesn’t end well, we learn how it feels like to fall and get hurt. But learning doesn’t have to end there. After our fall, we strive to get back on our feet and move on. This is where we learn that life does NOT end where our heartaches begin.
It’s true, there is life in love. But, there can still be a living even after losing love. If you leave the past behind and let your heart heal, then you give yourself the chance to find yourself again. The success of a relationship lies not only in the beauty of its beginning, but in its consistency. Make a choice not on impulse but a decision based on a healthy balance of mind and heart. Let us always remember that happiness is not a matter of destiny, but a matter of choice.
There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone so nice and beautiful and we just find ourselves getting so intensely attracted to that person. This feeling soon becomes a part of our everyday lives and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part of it is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than friendship. We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer, but in the end, our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up being sorry for ourselves. The truth is, you don’t have to forget someone you love. What you need to learn is how to accept the reality without being bitter or sorry for yourself. In fact, you would be better off giving that dedication and love to someone more deserving.
Don’t let your heart run your life. Be sensible and let your mind speak for itself. Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well. Always remember that if you lose someone, it is to give the space for someone better to fill your life with. Maybe not tomorrow, or the day after it, but someday, someone will. If you lose love, doesn’t mean you have failed in love. Cry if you have to, but make sure that tears wash away all the hurt and bitterness that the past left you with. Let go of the past, and someday love will find its way back to you. And when it does, pray that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime. It is true that love can wait forever, but don’t you think that it’s a bit misdirected to put your hope stubbornly on someone who doesn’t even care or understand how you feel?
More often than not, love makes us see the things through rose-coloured glasses. Most of the time, we fail to recognize the danger sign that light up along our way. This feeling you have nurtured for so long isn’t healthy anymore. You must realize that you have to let go now before it consumes you and your sanity. There is always a time to think and stop. A time to be sensible and not to allow our hearts to rule over our heads. You deserve to be happy, not in the arms of a man/woman who keeps you waiting but in the arms of someone who will take you now and love you forever.
Being in love may be one of the most wonderful thing we could experience but if the feeling begins to consume our whole being, then we have to stop and let our minds and not our hearts dictate our actions. Only when we learn to accept our fate and understand the meaning of our failures can we truly go on with our lives without having to look back and cry over the things that could have been but will never be.
