the art of letting go ...

One of the reasons why people get so sentimental, its because memories are the only things that don't change when everything else does. There are things in life that you can't hold on forever, no matter how much you fight for it.

Sometimes, destiny isn't always good. It becomes playful. When you meet someone you learn to love, you think that it was destiny who made your paths cross. But what if making your paths cross is just a part of the game that the playful destiny created? Making you realize that the person you thought that was destined for you wasn't really meant to stay but only destined to make you feel love and leave you when you have already fallen?

It's not easy to state a reason when you decide to leave your love. Some might think its just an excuse ... some might not actually believe ... some might blame you ... some will even get mad at you.

What they don't see is the fact that it hurts you even more to hurt someone who doesn't deserve to be hurt, especially when you can't actually state the reason why you have to leave ...

You can never own something that wasn't yours ... so lets stop gripping on things we expect to last forever ... Nothing lasts forever. Forever is a lie. Everything is transitory. So while you have something in your hand, put in your mind that it is just borrowed so that someday when its gone, it won't take you eternity just to let it go.

When your feelings gets strong for someone, its always wise to stop for a while and give your heart a time to breathe ... a time to use your mind to weigh the situation based on reasons, not on emotion. The saddest thing that can happen is when one falls in love while the other wants nothing more than friendship.

Love can sometimes be magic. There are times that I wish I am limited to certain emotions so that I'll never have to experience pain, never feel betrayed or disappointed and never get my fragile heart broken ... but the same things mean that I'll never know how it feels to love and be loved in return ... the thought of it kind of scares me.

To have heart that is whole but numb or a heart that's broken but real ... someday we'll all look back to those days we learned to love, get hurt, cry and fight. Maybe when that time comes, we'll be laughing at our old dumb selves, realizing how stupid we were to stand up for things we knew weren't really meant for us.

I guess learning takes times and mistakes makes one's journey fun.

Life is what we make it. Love makes the world go round. So lets live, love, and take whatever pain it brings ... though its hard to wait around for seomething I know will never happen ... its harder to stop when I know its everything I've always wanted.
