Love, what a great thing to have. The smiles, the laughter, the butterflies in the stomach that never go away, the unfathomable desire to see each other and be together always. Love; addictive. But just like any coin, love is two-faced, with the other side always hiding in the dark, hiding behind the better side.
For people who have been in love, got hurt, and chose to love again, they have always accepted the existence of the other half of it. You can never love without getting hurt. It is always part of the deal. But, getting hurt doesn’t always mean having worse. Sometimes, the pain and the suffering that we experience serve as instruments to make the relationship better and stronger, to be the better versions of ourselves as a partner and as an individual.
But, after enduring all the pain, and live through the sufferings, if it still won’t work, that’s fine. That’s okay. There’s nothing to worry about because it’s not a waste of time and a waste of effort. Maybe, you’re just paying it forward. Your experiencing the pain now and eventually use the lessons you have learned for the one who’s meant to be for you. As the saying goes, “everything happens for a reason”. The reason may not be clear now, but later on, you’ll realize its worth.
Yes, it’s sad to say goodbye. It’s painful to walk out of a relationship that you once thought will last a lifetime. It’s hard to let go of the things which have become routine. It’s difficult to try something new and something unknown. But, don’t fear, take a leap, and move on. Maybe, the next time, you’ll find a better worth-fighting coin who would also find you worth-fighting for.
