We are all a bit hesitant to give our all for love. We get a bit reluctant and scared at the beginning of love. We get so overwhelmed with the feelings that we unknowingly dodge it because of fear that it might one day leave us broken. There’s always a part of us that says ‘no’ to attachments because we know full well where it would lead us if things don’t pan out the way we expect them to. With those thoughts going on our head, we try to hold back the feeling when the truth is, we really want to accept it with our arms wide open.
But the thing is, it’s rare to find a love that makes you feel both fear and excitement. It’s as seldom as water in a desert. It’s so uncommon that it makes you want to run after it even if the path isn’t clear for you to see what lies ahead. So, if you happen to come across the feeling, go and give it a shot because we never know when it will come again. Stop fearing of what the future holds but be thirsty for chances and happiness when it comes to love. You might not know where it’s taking you or if it’s gonna work out, but it’s always better to know than sit there and not know at all.
If you stumble upon a love so strong that makes you cry and smile at the same time, and something that knocks the wind out of your chest just by thinking about the person, then go for it. You gotta stay close to someone who stirs so many emotions in you because that’s when we feel most alive. Stop giving a damn about how others may perceive the person. After all, it’s your life and your choices. Go and follow what your heart wants and who it wants to beat for. You either fall to the ground face first or you end up in that person’s arms. Who knows? So, run and tell the person how much she/he means to you. Go tell them about how you feel before you run out of time and guts. Live your life as it comes and invest in love. If it doesn’t work out, no worries! It’s better to have loved and lost than regret not grabbing the opportunity when you had the chance. You deserve to be happy and be loved (unless the person is married, of course!)
Stop being afraid. It’s a bit cheesy, I know. And I can’t even count the times I mentioned the ‘Love’ word in here. But trust me, it’s always worth it!
