Love Happens #13 – “Don’t Stop Believing”

“We met each other many times when we went prawning. But we never talked. I finally approached her after 4 months. And we’ve been together for three years.”

“We met each other many times when we went prawning.
But we never talked.
I finally approached her after 4 months.
And we’ve been together for three years.”

It’s magical how we meet that special someone. It can be that we fall in love with our friend of many years, or with that unlikely and unsuspecting girl/guy we see sitting at the same table every lunch break, or that sparks fly from over a distance – like what happened here for our featured lovebirds. (:

Love is unpredictable, and it can strike you when you least expect it. I’ve read somewhere before that it is precisely because we do not expect it, that we ‘fall‘ in love. When we fall, we don’t see it coming. We may end up hurt or we may find a precious gem on the ground, and then we pick ourselves up, feeling either wounded, satisfied or both. In life we can fall many times, and always, we pick ourselves up. If things turn out well, our love progresses into a long-term relationship. Often, love transforms from one form to another, and it is characterized decreasingly by romance and passion, and increasingly by commitment and mutual responsibility. A change in form doesn’t mean any dilution of love. That’s a common – and misguided – view. Love merely matures and grows – and it’s the same with people. We all grow out of our carefree childhood into adults with obligations and responsibilities. Allow love to take it’s natural course, let it grow healthily and embrace that.

Sometimes, things don’t turn out as well. We may feel hurt, let down, betrayed and even, angry. But life goes on. We pick ourselves up. Wounds may take from days to years to heal. At times, they even leave scars. We can be careful, watch where we walk, pace steadily and cautiously to prevent falling. But can we ever be sure that we will never fall again? No. Hence, for those of you out there who have ever been hurt in love, don’t stop believing that there is a special someone out there just for you. Wait patiently and he/she will come your way really soon. (: Perhaps what I’m trying to say is that whenever we fall (in love) we learn. Don’t give up on love, because it hasn’t given up on you.

See how beautiful it worked out for our lovebirds? What began as chance encounters progressed to them being ‘the one’ for each other. (‘: it may just happen to you. (:

Keep believing and always embrace love when it comes! (:

With Christmas Love,
