I was there when you said ‘Forever and Always’, you didn’t mean it baby. I don’t think so.
Ilang araw na rin ang lumipas, hindi ko napansin na may dahilan na muli ako para sumaya. Para ipagpatuloy ang buhay. Salamat.
Gagawan ko lahat ng tropa nito.
"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like." - St. Augustine of Hippo
I thought that love is the only way to complete someone’s life. I even defined love through lyrics of songs and I really thought that love is just about two people falling in love with each other. Love is crazy. Yes it is.
In my religion, we are taught that love is giving without expecting anything. Love is not only about sacrificing but it is also about doing what is right because love is never wrong. It is when you are willing to forgive. Most of all, you really love somebody if you respect that person. In my family, we are not sweet in our words. We’re not saying “I love you” every time but I know I am loved by them. When I have problems, they are always there to help me and vice versa. We celebrate special occasions, we go to church every Sunday and we always find time to be together whenever we need to. We are always happy. Showing love is simple for us, no pressure.
But, What is love? I am wrong about love. I keep on searching love. Sometimes I complain because I thought I am incomplete. I am too busy finding the right person for me, that I cannot see that someone is already deeply in love with me. Someone already did, and it is God.
I can say that we have different perspective about love because I thought love is just a simply romance. Movies, books, music and many more influenced me. They let me know that love is finding someone who can love me back and who can be there to hug or kiss me, or that someone who is very ideal to have family with. But I am so wrong. So wrong that I am willing to do crazy things for them, that I forget God loves me since then.
When I attended the youth service I realized that I have to know that love is not just an emotion but a decision. Emotion is not forever but “decision”, as long as it is right, is going to stay for life. I am wrong about love because I don’t know what is the true meaning of it.
I thought I am alone because my idea about love is wrong. I have to accept the true meaning of love. Someday I will have a perfect relationship because I will make God as the center of it. I have to know that God is love. And love is NOT God.
If God is love then love can always be the reason to live happily. Love will be the light of my life. I just have to remember that love is not only about ending up with someone, it is not always about having someone to spend Valentines with.
I’ve learned that Love is crazy. Yes it is, because love is all about pain and sacrificing yourself for someone special. And that’s exactly what Jesus did for us on the cross. Since then, we are loved.
