You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
— Dr. Seuss
Love. A four letter word but is very sufficiently enough to kill all your other pastimes and etch a person’s image in your mind for eternity. It kills to see your amour with another person and jealousy is just inevitable in this phase. Love makes us do crazy things and I admit that I’ve done the craziest you can imagine. Blabber around shite like a kid, drooling on the table cause he’d be so dayum hot. You name it. I spent my whole days writing songs about him and thinking about how a white t-shirt complements his arms or how his hair looks better when they’re tousled. Rainbows, unicorns and magic.
But then again, as happy and magical this phase may be, we teenagers seek the sadness everywhere. If the person doesn’t return the love, we try on self harm and curse life and all of its inhabitants. We never give up on the love though. Never. Why do we do that? Why not give it up and when you’re sure that it’s out of your league? I’ll tell you why. You like someone who can’t like you back because unrequited love can be survived in a way that once-requited love cannot. You live in a world of fantasy where the person loves you and you hold on the frayed strings of hope hoping that one day your amour is going to realize how much you mean to them and then they’ll fall head-over-heels in love with you.
Tell me littlies, if you never admit that you love someone, how would they find out? No one’s Psychic (unless you’re Prof X)! You need to take a tiny little step towards him/her and admit about the love. ASAP. Don’t wait for another being to come and take the place which you think and believe is rightfully yours. All you need is a little faith, trust
and some pixidust! Who knows, maybe they think about you the same way!
If they don’t love you back, hard luck mates. But hey, it’s NOT the end of the world. Wait for your special someone to step in. Wait, patiently and carefully. I believe that if it’s true love, it’ll survive. Some how, someway. There is someone in the world who’s patiently waiting for you the same way you wait for someone else. Give a world a chance and cut it some slack. Love takes time. Be happy and find other things to do meanwhile. Hang out with your friends, family and do everything you like to do. Painting, playing soccer, singing, reading, going out for adventure camps (…)
Yeah, I’ll be your agony aunt from now on. Ask me if ever need help. Stay happy my lovelies xx
