Love ! It is when you don’t understand why you fall for that person. That’s why it’s called falling in love, you’ll never know when to fall. It’s forgetting your ” tall, dark and handsome” or ” tall, sexy and smart” standard because it’s about accepting that person and being proud to tell the world about how you feel towards him. It’s seeing your girl still beautiful and sexy in spite of the absence of makeup and perfume. And being able to kiss your man right after waking up, even if he didn’t brush his teeth yet. It is loving that person’s flaws and immaturity. But, it’s not Love when your world only revolves between the two of you, Love is not selfish. Love puts color in your world but it doesn’t narrow and limit your capabilities. Love is about your willingness to step out of the box. It is about opening yourself to a world with a lot of mistakes YET learning it’s lesson and be able to stand its consequences.
It is being honest and keeping that loyalty intact. It’s about forgiving and not living in the past. It is how you’re willing to wait for that right moment and still keep that fire burning while waiting. It is when you learn to extend your patience and control your emotions. You’ll not only consider your own good but think about your partner’s sake.
It is about holding your hands together while being positive and learning to smile in spite of all the pain and obstacle you’ve been through. It’s okay to shed tears, it’s part of loving- you’ll never feel the real taste of happiness if there are no tears anyway. It’s waking up in the morning and sleeps at night with a smile on your face because of being loved by the person you also love. It’s dreaming about you preparing your man a ” baon ” for work, fixing his shirt and necktie and biding him a goodbye kiss.
It’s living the day with the thought of the two of you holding hands with your white hair and wrinkles on your face playing with your grandchildren under a lovely sunset.
LOVE is love! Unexplainable! Unpredictable!
