Every one of us experience to have a relationship that we even not sure if something started will actually have a happy ending. We know that certain person, who jumps from relationship to another, and every time we are there, we can say, “I am in love,” though we never know what is really going to happen. We take the risk, and we accept the possibility that things might not be favorable in some point; still it is what we choose… to stay. It is something what we feel; and for us, it is right and perfect. We don’t get bother if things would change soon, as long as we are happy today, we just let things happen (just go with the flow). Being in a perfect relationship (that is how we always look at it) can give us so many reasons to stay happy and motivated in everything.
I know while you are browsing the internet you’ve read some articles about being in a relationship (and being in love). We might have different reactions with that, but of course it is something connected with our own experiences. I want to share with you what I’ve read on one of the articles I just saw while browsing my Facebook. It is something about your true feeling of being in love or just being attached. It is for you to find out, but I could say that everything is a matter of choice. You can consider your current feelings; still you have to consider your future as well.
- Love is passionate, while attachment is apathetic.
- Love means selflessness, but attachment means self-centered.
- Love is freedom, yet attachment is possession.
- Love empowers each of you, and attachment just takes sides.
- Love has no time-limits, however, attachment is timed.
Have you just tried to look back in your relationship from the past, and say “I can’t believe that I loved that person? I can’t imagine that I’ve told that person ‘I love you.’” Just go back from the list I’ve shared with you, and I know you can have an answer. Like you, I also thought of that before. When I read this article, I had one reaction… I laughed (LOL). Same with me? Well… I guess so. I think that is normal, right? Just look into the bright side.
Now, I can start with my second entry that I want to share about my present partner (Hi! It is you again). Feel free to read my previous entry – Until The End. I remember one of my friends told me that she read my previous blog, and I was so happy to know her reaction. Of course it is positive, and I feel so happy knowing that others read it. Before, I like to write a long letter and gave it to him during special occasions, but I guess it is not my thing anymore. Instead of letting him read all the things that I want to say, I just blog it. Maybe, I just want to have a new way of expressing myself (or another sweetest way to tell the world that I have you *smile*).
We all know that the feeling of being with someone we love is something unexplainable. No words can explain exactly about how you feel because the only thing you could say is you love that person. (“Why do you love him?” “because I love him.”) There were times before that my friends asked what kind of person I like to be with as my lifetime partner; and I just told them that I have no standards at all, because in the first place I know that no one is perfect. What is important is his sincere and honest feelings towards me, because it also means that he accepted all the flaws and imperfections that I have. Honestly, I have a very low self-esteem (most of the time, when it comes to my appearance). I can’t see myself as a girlfriend material that a guy will be proud of. I don’t know. I just see myself as someone like that (I’m being honest here). I even see myself not capable of being in a relationship because I don’t have what the usual guy wants in a girl. I am simple, a very simple girl that you won’t even notice when you pass by (that is reality and I already accepted that). Anyway, it is part of being me. Even I have that kind of mindset before, it doesn’t really affect the whole me, especially- when I met him. Starting that day and until now, things are getting sweeter and perfect. Like what I said earlier that now I have different plans. Before, all my plans and goals were only for myself, but this time I am sharing it with him. Starting today, I am not going to walk alone, as I have chosen someone who will walk with me along the journey, and decided to face everything together. Knowing each other’s plans and goals help us to have a healthy relationship. I know there could be a lot to go through along our journey, but I am ready to face all of it. As long as we are together, we can do everything.
Sometimes, I was not able to express my feelings, but it doesn’t mean that it is changing. It didn’t change, and it will never be. Though we got separated before, but being together again makes us stronger. I am always going to tell you that life will never be easy, but it will never get hard as long as we are together. We just have to stay open, honest, and faithful. We might not know each other’s feelings sometimes, but keep in mind that I am here and always ready to listen. I know you’ll do the same, right?
I know we’ve made a choice. We chose to stay together. We both know that we have deal with more challenges that might come along our way, but as long as we are on each other’s side, we’ll never have to get worry about everything.
I’ve chosen you to be my other half. I’ve chosen the life path that I am going through with you. It is a matter of choice, and that’s you.
I love you forever and ever.
Love, Your Thart
