A word, a simple four letter word, too hard to explain yet too easy to understand… what is it about this word that makes all of us laugh, cry, dance in joy and god knows what all.
Have I fallen in love?
With things, yes.
With pets, yes.
With food, yes.
With places, yes.
With a person? No.
Do I intend to? God, yes.
Why is it that our world stops at these four letters? Why is it so important?
I am not sure but maybe it’s the feeling that you get when you’re in their arms and you feel as if the world has suddenly become the best place to live in. As if just by having their arms around you, you’ve found a safe haven, a place where nothing can harm you, nothing.
Or maybe it’s the way they make you feel when they compliment you, when they hold your hand or even when they tease you. The surprise kisses, the unplanned dates that turn into memories to cherish for a lifetime and even the fights.
It’s the touch and the thought of them that gives you butterflies in your stomach, a jittery wave in your spine and a healthy pink blush on your cheeks. Dancing on the favourite songs, eating a delicious dessert in a restaurant at the end of the street or just a simple hello by them, maybe that’s what makes it so important?
We all have so many identities, at home, at work, when we’re with friends, when we’re alone and so on but who are we really?
When we fall in love, we ask our partners to promise us that come what may they would never break the trust, trust that they won’t reveal the real you.
That is our real identity. We are who we are when we are with the person we love the most.
I’m a young and independent single woman who never had any intentions of falling in love but I have, not with a person instead with the idea of falling in love. It’s crazy, drives me insane and kills me sometimes but I know for a fact that when I’ll fall in love, I’ll probably go nuts… It will be messy knowing the person that I am but magical, annoying but passionate, painful but adventurous.
I hope it doesn’t take forever to fall in love because I cannot wait.
If you’re reading this…
If you’re in love, you’re the luckiest person in this world, I envy you and wish you all the luck in the world. But, if you aren’t, just like me, hold on… don’t lose hope! I’m sure somewhere someone is made for us too. It could be the person sitting right next to you at this very moment or the person you crossed in the market last evening or your classmate from school, 10 years back… You never know what life has in store for us. But, for now just don’t lose hope, you’ll find your person, we all do.
After all, it’s supposed to be a happy ending and we all deserve one!
