In dictionary: INLOVE means – a strong feeling of affection and concern toward another person, as that arising from kinship or close friendship. But what does it take to be IN LOVE?
In love it takes a listener to make the relationship work…
One key in having a successful relationship is leaning to listen to one another.
There are times when we tend to experience a complex situation in life such as,
being unable to choose who to love between two people.
According to Bob Ong, “Why choose to be a part-time lover
when one genuine love is more than enough?”
As a piece of advice: If you’re gonna pick between two people, choose the second one,
WHY? Because you will not love another person if you truly love the first one.
In love it takes risks…
In life, when we love someone, we invest our time and emotions to a person
but it doesn’t mean that it will guarantee you a happy ending.
Think that what you see in the movies are not the same with real life.
When we love someone, when we do things in the name of love: REMEMBER –
you will only be happy if you will learn to accept that it is not your heart, mind, intestine, or kidney who has a fault… BUT YOU ITSELF.
In love we fight for everything or anything…
Risking and fighting in the name of love is two the same thing that is interconnected,
in zillions of people in the world… how many individuals have a gut to fight for the one we
love despite the world going against us?
Sometimes in being alone in a fight, it is not feeling lonely or being scared is the big issue
here; RATHER, THINKING AND REALIZING THAT OUT OF BILLIONS OF PEOPLE HERE IN
THE WORLD… THERE IS NO ONE WHO ACCOMPANY AND FIGHT WITH YOU IN A WORLD
FULL OF WAR PHYSICALLY, SOCIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.
In love we tend to change…
We tend to change, either in a positive way or in a negative way.
Love can either make you a better person or make your life miserable.
It is just a choice of an individual whether he or she will take the relationship as an
optimist or a pessimist.
According to a blog of Bob Ong, If you’re the type of person who sees every failed
relationship as a learning experience, you’ll reap positive results. On the other hand,
pessimists usually see their self-esteem going downhill after each breakup.
In love, sometimes it is not the person who is hard to forget; but the person you became because of him.
As an piece of advice again: REMEMBER that whatever we choose in life, love is a God-sent. CHERISH IT. SAVOR IT. AND LEARN FROM IT.
In love we should realize that true love is beyond superficial…
There are people who tend to look in the physical appearance of an individual,
but in real life it doesn’t matter how dumb or good-looking you are
—as long as your love is sincere, it’s definitely worth fighting for.
In love we should also use our head…
Even when we are the kind of person that tends to attached easily,
we should not be a moron or a martyr when it comes to love.
Love doesn’t mean giving up our common sense
Love is also a balance between our logic and emotion.
BUT THERE’S A BIG BUT HERE, REMEMBER THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “INUUTAKAN” SA “GINAGAMIT ANG UTAK”.
Inuutakan – is for people who doesn’t have a good character, good value and good
intentions; on the other hand – it is more on keeping the true essence of reality and being
But in order to do all this things in the name of love, learn to let go what is needed to let go. Never sacrifice your sanity for someone who doesn’t deserve your love in the first place. Learn how to let go and respect your limits no matter what.
Give love a chance and be loyal or stick to one – everyone goes through a difficult phase before finding that one, true love. Failure is normal but it should never be a hindrance in loving someone who is truly right for us, or who is destined to be our partner (in God’s time and way). Remember that people are not the same, they might have the same mistakes but think of it that it is just a coincidence and learn from it and have a new, fresh, and beautiful start again.
