Love Is Sweeter The 2nd Time Around

capitol lagoon
Have you fallen in love for the first time?
Did it feel like it’s the most wonderful thing happened in your life?
Did he or she meant the one thing you want by your side?
Is the giggling forever when he or she is on sight?
Love came like a hurricane —so unexpected, so overwhelming.
Yet the anticipation of many is the same —if it’s love it’s going to hit you like a train.
But what everyone seems to ignore or let’s say what we all deny is the possibility of missing the train.
Love is like a potion that could make us believe something beautiful could not go wrong and be taken away from us.
Love comes, goes, hurts, and even betrays.
That’s the kind of love we know.
When a lover leaves our door our common resolution would always be “I’ll never fall in love again”.
And your world seems to just stop revolving and life is suddenly drab and motionless.
All dreams shatter, aspirations cease to matter, and everything around is crashing down.
We get so affected that even friends, family and social relationship suffer —all because of our self inflicted, long dwelled depression.
We may try to start a conversation but all we could ever say is sentiments over a love that we thought we knew but now has changed.
Our respect for love has just changed and our perspective has turned negative.
But at the back stage of our mind a hope is alive.
We still hope that what’s been gone will return and restore the ruined trust and security.
And so we anxiously wait —while bitter.
When waiting seems not to work we consider plan B.
Plan B is finding another.
The question is could you really fall in love again to another?
Could you actually forget the past and move fast to find a new lover to occupy your vacated heart?
Of course the answer is yes.
Yes it is for everybody except you.
Why?
Because you still cling to that old love and hesitant to move on.
But of course you can move on.
Time heals all wounds.
It will come.
You’ll love again that’s what I’m sure about.
We were made to love so love will always be a part of us.
If you are hurting right now listen to this.
Let me prophesy.
IT WILL BE GONE SOON.
How soon?
I don’t know.
Heaven knows.
Let me just tell you this.
Life is more than that.
Don’t be carried away by your emotion.
I know how it feels to have a broken relationship.
I’ve been there —many times.
And I’m not scared to love.
If I’m not loving then I shouldn’t be living.
Be positive about a broken relationship.
The good thing there is you learn.
And the best thing you’ll learn is that everything is temporal.
Life is too short to be lived in depression.
Again  I say you’ll love again.
Hope for it.
Love is sweeter the second time around.
There is much to learn when you love again.
I am speaking of love in human terms.
I can’t tell you much of what awaits when you love again.
The certain thing I can tell is that when you love again all the hurts and bitterness will be forgiven.
You can only be free when you forgive.
You can only forgive when you love.
Finally I say love again.
There will be more of stories to share, more dreams and ambitions to talk about, more jokes to be laughed about, more awkward moments and giggling, more smiles and more aspirations in life.
I can’t say more but love again. Try it.
