I have often talked about love, the concept and all that stuffs. I have also imagined so many times how it will be when I am in love. Although my actual experience of love is zero as I have never been in relationship before, but I believe I know a thing or two about love as I am a keen observer. I read, hear, watch stories about people in love and associate with their feelings as if I went through their lives already. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? But it’s true.
As much as dreamy person I am, I am also a realist. I don’t really imagine love without flaw like a fairy tale. I know love needs efforts, from both sides involved. There isn’t any single person without flaw in this world, if that’s what you would call it, but I’d rather say it weakness. Every human has weaknesses and strength. Even the most perfect person you could ever recognize has his weakness, you just haven’t seen it yet, or blind yourself from seeing it. This is where love plays the part. Love can make you blind to see the weakness of someone you love. Or perhaps, rather to say, you see the weakness, you know it, but you just don’t care about it. That weakness is something you could tolerate. You just focus to see the good sides of the one you love. So in that sense, I believe there is this compatibility between two people meant to be in love.
We hear a lot about this love compatibility. If you are compatible with someone, you won’t consider that person’ weakness as something detrimental that could turn off your interest. So people could see it as something big and questioning why do you even love this person. But to you, because you love him/her, it doesn’t matter to you. That’s why I always think you should be true to yourself and be honest with your partner so he/she could see the real you and whether this love you both have for each other are meant to be.
When you are open with each other, you see each other’s scars of the past, you could sense whether you are meant for each other by how much acceptance you receive. Someone who is not willing to see your scars won’t be someone destined to love you so just let him/her run away. On the contrary, someone who is destined to love you will embrace you for who you are, scarred or anything. The burden you carry is the burden he/she is willing to share with you as much as his/her burden is something you could lighten. So one concept of love is to share the burden of each other and to become each other’s strength to withstand it all.
So here’s to Love!
May we all find someone to love.
