[I can’t recognize who is the author(s) of this piece. I just collected it during my sophomore year in college. But whoever he/she(they may be) thanks. It serve as reminder and guidance for anyone who can relate. The title is not so exact. Enjoy!]
Why he/she? Why we love that person? Maybe we have found something different. But what he/she makes different? We need a friend, that’s why our lives should assemble with – friends added, enemies subtracted, joy multiplied and sorrows divided. May the equation is with you. When life seems tough… carry on. If things go wrong, move on. Bear in mind that we all need to build stepping stones out of stumbling blocks.
We may find life too complex for us to bear. Too hard for our futile mind to fathom, yet, looking through heaven’s eyes, we see the simplicity of it all, the faith of the child’s heart. And many of us wonder how life could be meaningful; bear in mind for life to be meaningful, add a little sacrifice, subtract anger and hatred, multiply friends and divide love for everyone to share. And stay humble, be faithful, offer hope, work diligently, fight fairly, live simply, rest deeply and pray regularly… and that’s what you call “living”.
Never regret a day of your life. Good days gives you happiness, bad days gives you experience, both are essential to life. But oftentimes it hurts, but love is only special when you give it to whom it’s worth. Love has its time, season and own reason! You cannot ask it to stay. You can only embrace it as it comes and be glad for a moment of your life it was yours. Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want him/her it doesn’t mean that he/she don’t love you with all they have. When you love, you must not expect in return, for it you do, you’ve nothing but investing. If you love, you must prepare to accept pain, for if you accept happiness, you’re not loving, but using.
If you love someone in all your heart and you cannot bear to be apart, tell them now before it’s too late, because everyone has the patience to wait. It hurts when we risk our heart and it ended up broken. But what hurts more is when we still hold on, when we already know that they are waiting for nothing. It’s always better to have found the courage, to love even if you lose it in the end, rather than never finding love, because you were afraid to face it challenges. Love is out of need, but act of the abundance of the heart. Don’t seek for someone whose heart you can fill. And sometimes, some thoughts are better left and unsaid, some feelings are better kept for yourself; but love has its own way of expressing itself, even in silence.
Don’t even frown, you never know when someone maybe falling in love with your smile. But in life, it doesn’t matter how far you’ve travelled, how much you possess, or what you have accomplished, but rather who you have standing beside you and the very end. It’s better not to have the person you love right now and have them later, than be with now, but lose them forever. Don’t throw your back to love when it’s already in front of you. Don’t drive it away from you, because if you did. Someday you’ll think again why you let love fly away when it was once next to you.
A break please! OK, here is it, two teardrops were floating down the river; one teardrop said to the other, “I’m the teardrop of a girl who loved a man and lost him. Who are you?”. “I’m the teardrop of a man who regret a girl.” It’s so funny how we set qualification for the right person to love, while at the back of your minds we know that the person we truly love will always be an exception. Sometimes the love we are looking for is right in front of us, too close for our eyes to see. So close your eyes and let your heart see for itself. There are so many stars in the sky, but only same radiant enough to catch your attention. Among those that you are close to ignore is that one. Star which is willing to continue shining for you, even if you glance remains elsewhere. When you love, it is not for you to be understood, but for you to understand; not for you to take but for you to be taken; to listen and not to dictate; to sacrifice and not to the demand; not to count or measure, but to love.
