Step Back, Step Forward

13 Jun

Once in a while, you find someone you are crazily attracted to. Someone you are dying to be with every minute of the day.
Someone you have a huge crush on, so huge that you overwhelm yourself with ideas and thoughts far beyond your wildest dreams.
Someone you are mad about.
Someone you crave to have.

When you find that someone, step back.
Don’t move forward, but take a step backward.

Once the euphoria dies down, you begin to see what once was flawless is now flawed.
You begin to see what once was tolerable is now intolerable.
You begin to see what once was lovely is now condemned.
You begin to see what once was compatible is now in doubt.

Everything that looks rosy now looks rotten.

When you find the time to realize that, step forward.
Don’t be hesitant, just take a bold step to the front line.

Truth comes when infatuation dies down.

We shall not cheat ourselves by becoming what the other person is like, because eventually we make him or her do things we do.
We confuse ourselves with the idea of liking someone for being like us, which is far from likeable.

Reality comes when we know the differences, and willingness to try to understand them.
Reality comes upon seeing real attitudes undisguised behind distant words.
Reality comes by the time we accept to embrace changes, and finally give in.

After all, love is reality, not just a dream.

Once in a while, we find that someone who is willing to wait together for love to bloom, instead of prolonged maddening crush.

When you find that someone, stay.
Now, you can step forward together.
