“There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald
In life, we encounter a lot of random people. Some of them may stay and some may go, while others will somehow find a way to be back in our lives.
These people will either make us or break us, they can be a blessing or a lesson that we need for us to be the person that we’re meant to be.
This love month, let’s talk about the types of love that we will (or may already have) encounter in our lives. Let’s talk about the bittersweet feeling of being in love.
Young love as they say. Remember the first time you had a crush on someone? And you thought that you two will end up with each other and grow old together? Wild imagination huh?
This is the time when you’re still confused about what love is. All you know is that it’s a tingling sensation whenever you see that person, you blush, you smile, and your heart pounds hard.
But as time goes by, you’ll realize that it’s just puppy love. The tingling sensation will slowly fade away and you’ll just accept the fact that it’s just a crush.
The pure and innocent love. By this time you’re already aware of love and commitment, you think that you’re responsible enough to handle a relationship because it looks easy, right?
Holding hands under the sun, movie dates, and nonstop talking on the phone. Good morning messages are a must and saying good night is a ritual.
Everything is perfect until you’ll experience your first heartbreak. You don’t know what to do because it’s your first time to feel that ache in your heart. So you talk to your friends or even post an emotional quote on social media until the time that you decided that you should move on.
And that my friend, is what you call first love.
The One that Got Away
I know you all know the song and most of you are already aware of what it means. This love is the most painful one, many hearts have bled and many songs were written about this type of love.
The right love at the wrong time, destined to meet but not destined to be together. How will I write this without getting hurt? Lol.
As said earlier, we either meet people who are a blessing or a lesson. This type of love is surely a lesson but what hurts about it is you actually don’t have any idea that this love will end unexpectedly and painfully.
It’s the prototype of your perfect love but it’s just in the wrong time. So let’s just all sing together… “In another life, I would make you stay so I don’t have to say you were the one that got away…the one that got away”.
Great love or matured love. You spend years loving each other and you already know that there are ups and downs, fights and makeups, and it’s all normal. You think that everything is perfect and you two are #relationshipgoals but it’s actually not.
Yes, you two really loved each other so much but there are times that you guys just pretend that everything is okay because you’re sick of dramas. Until one day. you’ll realize that you’re just in love with the idea of you guys being together because you’re used to it.
And when the time that you decided to face the truth, you’ll choose to let each other go. You guys really loved each other but you’re too damaged to fix everything so you’ll decide to fix yourselves in different paths.
This love is unexplainable even for me so I will just leave you with this simple and meaningful verse…
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres. Love never fails”
We may or may not experience these types of love. We may find it in different people or in one person but let me say this to you, the happiness and pain that you will or you have experienced are the things that you need for you to be ready for the right one.
So if you’re loveless at this moment, don’t feel bad because “The One” is just making himself/herself ready for your happily ever after.
