The idea of a “first love” being your real love is very cliché. And most of us are obsessed with that idea. You think you can never love again with all your heart. Well the truth is, you do. And you love rather earnestly. You actually “try” in this relationship than depend on fate. You work on your relationship rather than leave it in the hands of time. And so, even in hard times, your love manages to survive the rough waters. Although you face doubts and fears and your relationship hits the rocky paths every now and then, you are happy because it is real. You are happy because this time, it is honest. And you know this because his love is enough to twinkle even through your darkest clouds.
And it is in that happy moment under the starlit sky by his side that you come to realise that maybe it was never about the happy ending. Maybe it is about the story. After all, it’s not the final destination but the journey that counts.
And even if another love story follows, your second love is the best love. It is lasts even if it ends. It makes you happy even on sad days. It makes you believe on the gloomiest days. It makes you stronger on doubtful occasions. It gives you the satisfaction of a real relationship, where you’re willing to love and be loved; where you’re to give it your all and allow someone to do the same.
So love again, ’cause it only gets better. Don’t be afraid, ’cause you could get lucky the second time if not the first. I know I was – second time lucky.
