Lesson # 28: From a talk while eating Isaw
Heart-to-heart talks usually take place inside coffee shops or restaurants or village parks, this particular one that I had was while my friend and I were feasting on 20 pieces of isaw and over a dozen fish and squid balls amid all the smoke and children begging for food or coins.
It was a particularly long conversation about love and heartaches and life in general; but it was mostly about love and heartaches. It took time to release what was inside, but I’d like to think it was all worth it.
Because lesson 28.1: The best way to heal a broken heart is to let it speak and The best way to help heal a broken heart is to listen.
And lesson 28.2: The small things and gestures? They matter.
Those lessons need not be explained. Yes?
Moving on, the conversation made me realize how love can really blind us, even for a moment, and make it more difficult for us to realize that 1) We aren’t being treated the way we should be treated, 2) We are losing confidence in ourselves and 3) We are already getting hurt.
The conversation made me realize how much people really give because of love. Sometimes too little, sometimes too much.
It reminded me that love should never be all about me but rather it should be about you; and it should be about us.
Because lesson 28.3: To love is to bring down your own walls and defenses just so that you can lay it all on the line. (but knowing too well that you must leave some for yourself)
It’s about knowing when to swallow your pride – and also learning when NOT TO.
For lesson 28.4: For Love has both a tipping point (the point when you realize you are in-love) and a boiling point (the point when you just can’t take it anymore)
You just have to know when it’s too much already.
These lessons don’t guarantee success in love; but it can help. We must realize that we can think of all the lessons we could learn from each and every love story but we can still very much end up messing up a relationship and making a fool not only of yourself but also of the person you love because of a wrong decision, a wrong statement, a wrong move, or what-not.
We’ve all heard love stories that end in heartache; but we’ve also heard stories that end with the happily-ever-after sort of thing which we all hope to have. Those stories give us hope.
Which leads me to lesson 28.5: Having a relationship end doesn’t mean the world is also about to. Having a relationship end means that the first one wasn’t meant to be and that the right one is about to come. 🙂
Coz everybody tries to put some love on the line and everybody feels a broken heart sometimes. And even when i’m scared I have to try to fly. Sometimes I fall, but I’ve seen it done before I’ve got to step outside these walls.
Forgive me for the incoherence of some parts. I’m too sleepy to think well. 🙂 More love lessons soon! 😀
