It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.
~Vincent Van Gogh
Most times, even if giving your heart away ends in heartbreak, the risk was still worth it. Sometimes, that risk gives you little miracles. and sometimes, that risk gives you life lessons that allow you to grow and learn more about yourself.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Love, perhaps, is the most wonderful thing in the world. Love is what makes us smile, it’s what makes us sing or dance. Love is what makes us human. And love makes life worth living.
Valentine’s Day is that time of the year where the world is split into two: first, those with partners or are in a relationship and second, the singles. (Which group are you in this year?) We were in either group at certain points in our lives, and in which group were we happier, each of us has our answers.
Well, whether you’re single or in a relationship, Valentine’s Day tends to get the better or worse of people. That secret yearning in us to be loved. And what best way to celebrate such concept but to create a holiday that is best represented by worldwide commercialism.
So the best girl gets the flowers, the sweetest chocolates, the most memorable candle-lit dinner dates, and if she’s lucky, the ring! We are all suckers for romance and for the very few men who really look forward to this day to be able to express their love, oh, you rock! But then again, love is much deeper than that. We can always express our love at any given day, at any given moment. Why limit ourselves expressing our love for just one day out of 365? Why not make everyday Valentine’s day?
Moreover, this commercialism has gone way too far that it makes us feel incomplete to be on our own on Hearts Day. When we don’t have to feel that way, we shouldn’t feel that way. Singles don’t have to be miserable on V-Day. There are a lot of things to enjoy and that includes being single.
Anyhow, I’m not sure exactly why I’m writing this today so I better stop. Love is such a crazy thing, I guess. It’s a beautiful, crazy thing. It’s magical. It’s complex. It’s different for everyone. But whether you’re single or in a relationship, I hope you feel loved.
Happy Hearts Day, homo sapiens! ❤️
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.
No matter what, nobody can take away the dances you’ve already had.
~Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.
You know how they say you only hurt the ones you love? Well, it works both ways.
Love and loss,” he said, “are like a ship and the sea. They rise together. The more we love, the more we have to lose. But the only way to avoid loss is to avoid love. And what a sad world that would be.
Love yourself for everything you are.
She’s broken enough to look back.
One smile and my heart beats.
I’m tired and I’m missing you.
Feeling everything deeply is not easy.
Afraid that I’ll miss you forever.
Words hurt more than we admit.
Someday I’ll wake up beside you.
He did not love her enough.
Miss having you here beside me.
He knows she won’t forgive him.
There’s a story behind her smile.
just once when
you left me all
We only have each other now.
something in me
that just can’t let
She vowed to never love again.
look like it
but it’s killing me
Everything she’s done was for him.
She has done enough for him.
She never really wanted someone else.
get it, it’s
not easy letting people
just how unfair
you have been to
people you love
know that you love
the one you
deserve and you’ll be
Loving you a bit more everyday.
Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.
He meant so much. She didn’t.
having feelings for
someone you can’t be
Needed you more than I thought.
I really should have never cared.
There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
doesn’t want you
hurting yourself in any
I can’t fall all over again.
She’s got nothing left to give.
We can always start again. Always.
my own pace,
nobody gets to say
A heart like yours is rare.
Feelings come and feelings go. There is no need to fear them and no need to crave them. Be open to your feelings and experience them while they are here. Then be open to the feelings that will come next. Your feelings are a part of your experience. Yet no mere feeling, however intense it may seem, is your permanent reality.
