Sometimes, in our relentless efforts to find the person we love,
we fail to recognize and appreciate the people who love us.
We miss out on so many beautiful things
and simply because we allow ourselves
to be enslaved by our own selfish concerns.
Go for the man of deeds and not for the man of words
for you will find rewarding happiness
not with the man you love but the man whom loves you more.
The best lovers are those who are capable of loving from a distance,
far enough to allow the other person to grow
but never too far to feel the love deep within your being.
To let go of someone doesn't mean you have to stop loving,
it only means that you allow that person to find his own happiness
without expecting him to come back.
Letting go is not just setting the other person free,
but it is also setting yourself free from bitterness, hatred and anger
that you keep in your heart.
Do not let the bitterness rare away your strength and weaken your faith,
and never allow pain to dishearten you
but rather let you grow with wisdom in bearing it.
You may have found peace in just loving someone
from a distance not expecting in return.
But be careful, for this can sustain life
but can never give enough room for us to grow.
We can all survive with just beautiful memories of the past
but real peace and happiness come only with open acceptance
of what reality is today.
There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone
so nice and beautiful and we just find ourselves
getting so intensely attracted to that person.
This feeling soon become a part of our everyday lives
and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions.
The sad part of it is when we begin to realize
that this person feels nothing more for us than just friendship.
We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer
but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded
and we end up being sorry for ourselves.
You don't have to forget someone you love.
What you need is how to accept the verdict of reality
without being bitter or sorry for yourself.
Believe me, you would be better off
giving that dedication and love to someone more deserving.
Don't let your heart run your life, be sensible
and let your mind speak for itself.
Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well.
Always remember that if you lose someone today,
it means that someone better is coming tomorrow:
if you loose love that doesn't mean that you failed in love.
Cry, if you have to, but make it sure that the past has left with you.
Let go of yesterday and love will find its way back to you
and when it does, pray that it may be
the love that will stay and last a lifetime.
