To That One Person Who Made Me Love Again

To That One Person Who Made Me Love Again

If you have been in love with someone, you will get this feeling.

And I haven’t mentioned that you necessarily had to be in a relationship. Just the fact you have wanted someone else makes you go right here.

Just the fact you wanted to give your heart to someone else.

It doesn’t matter if you are 17, 28 or 45. At some point in your life you have felt this little but beautiful feeling called love. You could have felt it as little as the sting of a bee, or as much as the waves impact on the ocean.

But there is no real measure for love.

You could have loved someone for one week, or for as long as two years. You could have loved someone for just the way they look at you or for all the things they made you feel. And it doesn’t matter. Love is love. It’s the same here and in China. It’s the same in every religion. In every language. Everywhere.

The special thing about love is you don’t expect it. You could say today you are fine by yourself and the very next day can’t sleep thinking about that pair of hazel eyes. You can’t think straight. You just imagine that special person and everything else doesn’t matter. It’s extraordinary. It feels like everything is relative when you think of them.

And it’s crazy how every little thing reminds you of them. You see a girl with glasses and suddenly, ”your girl” is already on your mind. You see a boy with freckles and you have your prince blue knocking on your head. And that’s when you realize that the little things are the most important.

Because is when you figure out there are not that ”little”.

In fact, they are the things that keep your loved one on your mind. The way she smiles, the way he sleeps, the way the world is felt when you are with them. That’s where love is born.

And if you are lucky enough, the other person loves you as much as you do. And no one can destroy that bond but yourselves. You are the only responsible for what may happen between both of you. You are responsible if that bond gets stronger of it breaks apart. And usually occurs the second thing.

And if that ever happened to you, let me tell you I know how it feels to see your world crumbling down. I have experienced that. And it’s not something you wish it ever happens again. And you start closing yourself. You feel like it’s not worth it anymore to open up to anybody else so you just can’t get hurt again. Doesn’t matter if someone shows true interest in you. You are in your bubble and it seems no one can pop it down.

Because in that cases, all you need is time.

Time for yourself. To get the wounds heal. To start thinking things better. To consider if it’s worth the shot to give someone a chance. Don’t focus on how much time do you need to recover. In some cases, if the break up was really hard, you will need more time. And that’s ok. You don’t need to be ok from one day to another. It will take days, weeks and even months to just feel on top of the world again. You will even feel stronger than before and that nothing can beat you down. You will even get to the point to feel that you are the only company you need.

Until you met someone.

Usually, that ”someone” is the one who comes to makes us hesitate about our being. About opening up ourselves again. To start worrying about more for them than for us. To quit our peaceful bubble and explore out the real world again. All that world that we have missing.

It comes to be a tough decision. You feel comfortable with yourself, but also feel a connection with them. You may seem to be in a tunnel without an easy exit. Because you don’t want to get hurt again, but you won’t want to hurt the other one. So you just do it. You give it a shot. You will think that maybe, just maybe, another heartache won’t kill you. Besides, you don’t want to be alone forever. So you just go into it with all your effort. Maybe this time if you give more from yourself than expecting from the other one will do things right. And lucky you, they think just like you do. And things go better than you expected. And you start feeling happier than before. You start going out more, or be in a better mood. You will start thinking love is enough again.

And you are right. And you get it.

Maybe all you needed was a heart break to learn that love is not always easy. To understand that some people will like you, but some others will truly love you just for who you are. To understand that you needed to love yourself first in order to be ready to give all that love you have been keeping, give it to someone else.  To forget someone before you could move on and know that special person. That person who will take out your fears. Who will you fall in love with everything. Their angry mood, the way they scold at you, the way they smile at you. The way how they concern about you, how they want just the very best for you. How they eat, how they sleep, how they twist their hair when they feel anxious. How they walk, how they talk, how they even sing, even if they are the worst singer in the world. How they talk about the things they love or hate, the things that make them happy or sad, the things that excite them or put them down. You will listen every detail, every word with empathy and comprehension. You will learn to listen and to talk when it’s the time. You will just realize how their flaws and qualities match perfectly with themselves. You will learn more about love with them. You will do things you were afraid to do before, do them now so easily. You will learn to like the things they want.

You will learn them. And all those things will fulfill you. Will make you happy. And all that it’s just love. All those little things, those tiny moments. You will end up knowing what true love is about. Because somehow, that person helped you love again. To trust again, not only in yourself, but to trust people and specially, to trust love. To fly without the fear of falling down, because deep inside yourself you know that if you fall, they will be right down to catch you every time.

And you will learn that love doesn’t damage, it only heals you. It sets you free from any boundary from the past and most of all, it will teach you how it is necessary to keep alive its flame inside your heart.

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

My Rendezvous With Life

My Rendezvous With Life

The treacherous waters of existence hail in their stride,As the beauty of sailing against the winds uproars in its ride.Benevolence in its yonder stirs the mirth of the true,Navigating the turbulent waves, death and I had a rendezvous.

I sought the beauty of the light that was unseen,In the depths of my muse, I found my world within.Life in its flair, trudged me into the emblems of the dark,The dreams that perspired in the seed embraced their death,As it was time for a new quest to embark.

Quaint whispers that echoed in their gallant stance,The jeers that surmounted the uncertainty galloped in their dance.Silencing the wind, bestriding the fall,I plunged into the entirety of my endeavours that call

The Power of Understanding Your Love Language

The Power of Understanding Your Love Language

Love is the purest emotion one feels towards themselves and another individual. While the expression of love can vary in its entirety from one person to another, the care we hold for the ones we love shares an undeniable impact on how we forge our perceptions of interpersonal relationships. The way we communicate our feelings to someone also says a lot about how we are wired, the method of conveying our affection to our beloved ones is called a love language. You may express affection to the one you love regularly, but do you take the time to ensure that you are communicating it in the way that the other person prefers? Even love can become lost in translation when two individuals speak different love languages.

What are the five love languages?

The Beauty Of Gratitude In A World Full Of Cynicism

Ever acquainted with the phrase that the world that you exist in, the life that you embody dwells in the perception of the stance you hold for yourself. The beauty and the tragedy of life is that it is as beautiful as the optimistic lens of perception and as ugly as the pessimistic view of your being.

The strive of our endeavours and the constant effort to achieve the next massive milestone often drive us to the edges of insanity, to be in the consistent light of greatness we lose sight of the great strings of joy that bind our existence together. To be the best we have ever been we must be mindful of the best we are. Coinciding in the traps of negativity and yet claiming to be the best version of yourself is a blinding truth that lies to only

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I Breathe In The Sauntering Air That Collapses My Being

I breathe in the sauntering air that collapses my being,I breathe through the crevices of my existence unseen.Uncertainty in its yonder strikes in bolt on the scars that nobody sees,Redemption that loves, redemption that is free, find me in the depths of my poetry.

Tales of lust ridden in smeared touches that belie,Entreated with envy, the visions of victory lie.To be or not to be in a question that yet lies,For I yearn for a world where fond passion never dies.

Enclasped in the cage of the deemed duty,Bounded in her vows, she forgot she was a thing of beauty.In a realm we live, where amour in its truth fails to stand tall,She, tired of her existence, submerges herself into the beauty that her dreams enthrall.

Chaos in its uproar hails in its darkness
