When it Comes to Love

Life's really interesting the way it turns out. Especially in the transition from being a child to being an adult. You may escape reality for a while, but it catches you up and scares you from behind. What seems like a brilliant love story always has its pain. Nothing turns out as it looks like. Even when anything else seems to be stupid to claim. 

Life's not what you make it because you have so little power over your own life. Ironically enough, others form what you become. Others form where you are and how you feel. And sadly enough, so many young people have such an amazing view of life. Truth is, you'll have very little to say. I don't know if I'll laugh at this when I get older, but I've discovered that when you see the best in people, you got blinded. You have to be ready to see the best and worst in people. You can't ignore the bad sides, the luggage or even the slightest signals. 

Truth is, most of the time, it's too late. We're so positive as people. We always want to hope for the best, give the best, try our hardest. Especially when it comes to love. Love just seems so lovely. Even after all the awful stories you've heard from others, even after countless warnings, after countless advise. You still give yourself to someone because you think this significant other is somehow different. And so it goes. It seems like you have all you ever wanted. It seems like this is it, this is the life, this is the love, your dream has come true, everything's the way it's supposed to be. 

But little by little, reality catches up with you and before you know it, you're staring into the eyes of a wholly different person. It's almost frightening, how little you know, and what's even more frightening is that you thought you actually knew. Because after all, this was nothing close to blind love. You know each other's good and bad sides, you know the pretty and the ugly, you know the habits and you know the stories.
Yet reality, in it's purest form, still hides behind that imperfect but, yet so cherished person. 

We think that our stories are different. That finally, it'll make sense. Finally someone understands and receives in the way that you have longed for. You give everything you have, even what you don't have. But nothing about us is different. Just as real as everything else. Disappointment, tears, misunderstanding, grudge, regret, sadness.

Every person that comes into our lives shapes us, creates us. That is, we are a creation of other people. Now meeting another creation, of other people, can form a clash, which happens in every single story. What do you do with it then when there's no way back? When the tables are set and the dress is bought and life is ahead? There's no regret, but reality certainly does frighten.


  1. some people are just meant not to stay in our life :) They're just there to teach us lessons

  2. Sometimes we don't know if s/he is our true love. Still searching....

  3. I'm going through some series of disappointments in life as well right now.. but what I can say for sure is that life goes on. As Kelly Clarkson have said, 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. :)

  4. love can affect us in many ways..sometimes it can bring us joy and sometime it can brings us pain..its up to us to deal with


  5. Hi Aemy,

    It's been a while since we last chat. I guess most probably becoz Ive changed to the new number and I've got a new job. I guess the last we've spoke was when I really upset with my long distance relationship.

    I cant seem to rmb how I overcome the feeling. But anyone, Love can keep us a alive and love can kill us at the same time. I hope my search will come to the end soon.

    Till then, appreciate what we've got.


Thank you for dropping by. Keep a song in your heart and have a nice day. Au revoir.
