Never Hesitate with Love
It’s the Valentine’s weekend and while I was reading today’s papers, I saw that its pages were literally spilling with all things Valentine’s…from ads on where to go to feature articles on how to celebrate, how to surprise your significant other and also how to celebrate when you’re single.
One article though caught my attention. This was a lost love story of one twenty-something guy who, perhaps as a last ditch effort, sent in his story of The One That Got Away. [This actually made me cry. :(]
Story goes, he was schoolmates with the girl back in high school and he has had a crush on her for the longest time. They got teased a lot in school but nothing came of it. The guy was too shy to approach the girl to tell her how he felt.
High school came and went; and they found themselves separated when he studied in a different university. They lost touch. He had other crushes, he had his first girlfriend [and a couple more after that]; but always, at the back of his mind, he was always thinking about the girl.
The article describes just how much he feels for this girl and wants to be with her but always, he was hesitant. They chanced upon each other one day, they exchanged stories on how their lives have been over the years; and his feelings were just as strong as the first day he fell in love with her.
Now that he finally found the courage to “get her back;” to tell her how much he loves her; he finds out that the girl is about to get married. 😦 😦 😦
So goes his story…and many others just like his. How many times have we let someone slip away because of reasons that we have conjured up in our minds only to find out too late that the reasons were feeble compared to the pain we would face living without the person?
It’s the weekend of love…perhaps it’s not too late for most of us to finally reach out and tell someone that we love them; that we wish to spend our lives with them; or simply to let them know that here is a person loving them unconditionally…will they take this love or throw it away? We cannot tell, but at least we would live knowing that we let the person know how we feel about them.
It’s never too late…love moves in mysterious ways, remember? 😉
