True Love

Every relationship will get boring after you’ve been together for some years. To be honest with you, love isn’t a feeling; it’s a commitment to love each other everyday, physically and emotionally. It’s difficult at times because it’s not always laughing or smiles and fun. A lot of people tend to quit when it stops being fun and they go look for someone else because they believe that spark is gone.

But NO, that’s not how it works. If you ever want to be loved by someone unconditionally, and they should keep loving you all the time, then you have a responsibility to do the same. This isn’t like the movies. It’s real life. Love someone when you don’t even want to love them.

Be in love with someone who wants to know your favorite color and just how you like your coffee. Be in love with someone who loves the way you are and would do absolutely anything to keep you the way you are. Be in love with someone who will never ever ask you to change yourself.

Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and your imperfections, thinking that you are perfect just the way you are. Fall in love with someone who thinks that you are the ONE. If you love someone, SHOW THEM. It’s better than TELLING THEM. You should always believe that true love is not something you feel. It’s actually something YOU DO.

Read the title again, “Don’t Break a Bird’s Wings and then Tell it to Fly“. Ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin nito?

  • Don’t break a heart and then tell it to love.

WOW ha. Hindi ganun kadali magmahal o magmahal ‘ulit’ after a heartbreak.

  • Don’t break a soul and then tell it to be happy.

Pwedeng related din ito sa una kong sinabi. Of course, kapag bnreak mo heart, kasama na n’yan ‘matic yung lungkot. Or if not in that case, any frustrations makes one sad. Lalo na kung you’ve given much effort, dedication and all tapos masasaktan ka lang pala. Tapos sasabihin sa’yo just be happy. OH my, easy to say. Hindi gano’n kabilis magrecover. Oo, eventually, magiging masaya ka rin naman sa mga bagong mangyayari sa buhay mo pero hindi agad-agad. Lalo pa’t part na yun ng memory ng isang tao, kahit matagal nang tapos na.

  • Don’t judge people and expect them to stand by your side.

Ano ka, hilo? Isa sa pinakamasakit na gagawin mo sa isang tao ay i-judge s’ya based on haka-haka, tsismis, inggit, or whatever. Who wants that? Kahit ikaw ayaw mong ma-judge di ba? So now, in case jinudge mo ang isang tao then after some time, you need his/her help or support, would you expect na that person will stand by your side? Na ipagtatanggol ka n’ya? Na tutulungan ka n’ya? Na susuportahan ka n’ya? I doubt. Same goes sa relationship… Jinudge mo yung ka-relasyon mo, nagduda ka, meron kang trust issues kahit never ka naman n’yang niloko or whatever, do you think tatagal ang relasyon n’yo? Pwedeng patawarin ka n’ya ngayon o intindihin, pero pano kung paulit-ulit na ganun ang ginagawa mo? Wag mo nang i-expect na tatagal s’ya sa’yo o sa relasyon n’yo. Masakit sobra nag ma-judge ng wala ka namang ginagawang masama.

Life is about giving and taking. You cannot expect to give bad and receive good. Vice versa, you cannot expect to give good and receive bad. Sa lahat ng gagawin mo, always take time to THINK FIRST. 🙂
