Love turns you into a liar. Without knowing, you bend and twist your words, your own belief and who you are to become that person’s ideal. You make up excuses for that person when they wrong you. You convince yourself that that person is the one, that no matter what, you will never give up. You do it so well, you become a believer who falls head over heels for the occasional sweet words and faint promises. It becomes a habit and you can’t stop. Then on the bad days, you realize you have made a mistake. So you stop. This time, you are determined. You are done. Enough, you say. But a few sweet words and faint promises later, you’re back at it again.

You turned into a liar. But lucky for you, it wasn’t love that turned you into a liar. It’s loneliness and the longing to be with someone. When you’re in love, you shouldn’t have to lie and pretend to be someone you’re not. But you’re not ready for love until you can handle loneliness with grace.

Do & don’t

Fall in love. Don’t fall in love with the idea of being in love.

Decisions

I’ve been out of sort, out of this world, out of mind, out of you. But enough is enough. Without actions, dreams and wonders feel poisonous somehow. Without actions, thoughts are loud, meaningless noises. I will live this life by doing because thinking is my illusion of glass half full.

I choose to ignore the uncertainty about today, tomorrow, about you, about us. I learned the hard way that questions do not rid of uncertainty. Attempts, mistakes and heartbreaks do.

Fuck emotion and social standards. I will run toward the roar with my heart on my sleeve.

This life, I will live by doing..

.. and in oblivion, I will love you.

Just because fate says X, doesn’t mean X is right.

Cliché

“If you’re not happy with yourself being single, you won’t be happy in a relationship either. You have to create your own life first before you can share it with someone else.”

“Never let someone be your priority, while allowing yourself to be just their option.”

Cliché is an expression or idea which has been overused to the point of losing its original meaning or effect. We tend to shy away from cliché because we do not want to be categorized as old-fashioned, traditional, corny or what not. At one point, we need to recognize that being overused does not change the fact that some clichés continue to be right. As we fall in love, even if it is not our first time, we are all beginners and clichés are wisdoms that remind us to be cautious and protective of our hearts. It is ok if our hearts get broken. However, it is not ok when we knowingly let it be broken.

The thing you’ll misplace the most: time.
