I’m no expert.

Definitely the farthest thing from an expert in fact. However when it comes to love, I know a thing or two about a thing or two.

I know that the two times I fell in love I wasn’t expecting it at all. It just sort of happened. In both instances I was talking to other people and then they stepped into my life and nothing else mattered. They were so different from all the other people talking to me. I just had to learn more and know more about who they were and why I was so enchanted by them. The second time I fell in love I didn’t even want to. I was about to start a new chapter soon. A fresh start and new beginning. I didn’t want to fall in love so much that I tried to push it out of my thoughts. I tried and tried but even after I accepted my feelings I still never told him. I was waiting. Waiting for the timing to be right and for the stars and planets to align and…

Timing. The timing never seems to be right. You’re looking for one thing and they want the complete opposite. So when they let you go, because they will let you go, please refer to this;

Realize now that when your heart breaks, you’ve got to fight like hell to make sure you’re still alive. Because you are. And that pain you feel? That’s life. The confusion and fear? That’s there to remind you that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for. *

Hope is a thing that you can never let go of. Hold Hope close and dear to your heart. Hope cannot hurt you, it can only heal you. Hope that someday there will be someone who doesn’t break your heart. Just don’t get Hope twisted. Don’t use it to hold onto the man letting you go.

That’s something I learned the hard way, I’m still learning what it means to let someone go. It’s hard. It’s hard to let someone go when they’ve seen you at your very worst and cherished you at your very best. When they know more about you then anyone else. How could you go cold turkey from them?

Don’t trust me when I say this. Just believe, as I do, that someday when you’ve let go of the love that shattered your heart, that someone will come along and you will love again.
