Don’t do it…
If there's one thing you shouldn't do, it’s to not fight with what your heart wants, what your heart aches for, what makes your heart jump, what makes a smile suddenly appear on your face just because of a bump in the road. Yes, sometimes we realize what we had when it’s too late. We realized we lost someone really amazing when it’s too late to patch things up and have things go back to the way they were. But don’t run away from it, when you are aware of what you have.
I was 15 when I first heard these words “to love and be loved” well the first time when it really hit me. It’s something I wanted, to love someone and to be loved back and over the years, I learned that I can love someone but that doesn’t mean I will be loved in return. I loved more than I should have, fell harder than I should have. Five years later, I am left in awe over someone. Someone who is probably the person I’d actually hate if I didn’t get to know, they really know what they are talking about when you hear “don’t judge a book by its cover”.
To love and be loved, to fall in love hopelessly, genuinely and happy with your best friend that means getting through the rough times. When you find that someone who makes your heart skip a beat, or makes you wonder “how did he/she end up in my life?” Don’t let go, get through the rough days, the distance, the haters, the fights, the disagreements, go through all of it, because I bet the times when they light up your face or make you laugh uncontrollably or are your shoulder to cry in, the days doing the simplest things are the best days, those rainy sad days don’t cross your mind. Your heart just becomes full of butterflies.
To fall in love is so easy but to stay in love that is the challenge, love isn’t easy. It won’t be, find that someone who makes you feel like it’s too good to be true, keep them and hold on tight. To love and be loved is the absolute best feeling in the world.
So if there’s one thing you shouldn’t do, don’t run away from what makes you truly happy, make things work with who you want in your life.
Here’s to you,
I never thought I’d fall in love with someone like you, nor did I think when we first met we would be where we are today but it’s you and me, so get ready for this journey because you’re stuck with me.
