Along the long road...
It is something which is honestly worth thinking. Some people I know think that there is a certain age, time, space, situation ... in short and scientific terms ... a specific system, within which love can come into existence. They believe there is a right time, right place to love. Some even think that they can fight love if they want to, and not fall in love with anyone till they are ready. Do you agree with them? Do you really think you can fight that feeling which every person dreams and wants to feel? Am I asking too many questions? Is this getting annoying?
There is no courage in being in love, or loving someone for a long time and not want anything back from them. There is no courage in proclaiming your love for someone. Courage lies in true love. The one which cares from the heart and soul. The one which will truly give anything just to have that person in its life. Fighting love is the easier thing to do. Maintaining it is the hardest. People don't even realise how they come into someone's life, change it, and walk out ... just like that! I've seen this and truly believe in this now. No person can understand how much they are loved by another. Be it their parents, siblings, relatives, or partner. They can't. They can understand how much they love them, but not the other way around. What really bakes my noodle is when they don't believe they are being loved enough! But thats a different story.
Never restrict yourself just because you believe in something. If you think you're too small to love, what is there to stop you from saying you're too small to misunderstand that belief? What is there which says you're wrong to be in love just because you're not (insert age you think is small)? C'mon! Those who say that need to grow up themselves. Get up and smell the roses. Humans are the most complicated beings on earth, and it takes long enough for one to understand themselves. It'll take longer to understand what they feel and if they're right in feeling it. Take things as they come. Just don't shut yourself to change. If you are as young as you say, then you should be learning right now and not making up rules. Life rarely repeats a lesson twice. Learn to listen, and listen good!
The chalk is on the board!
why does it always have to be the age factor? you could just decide you don't want to fall in love again because you don't want to risk again. isn't that the sensible thing to do sometimes? when you know you've been hurt many times, you could use your common sense and save yourself the trouble. you can make a mistake once, but you're supposed to learn from your mistakes, right? why keep making the same mistakes again and again?
in the end, you hurt no one but yourself.
in the end, it doesn't even matter.
sorry if i said some irrelevant stuff, it's just something i thought anyway.
