Do You Love Him Or His Image?

With all the stories that I am hearing, a very pertinent question is doing the rounds of my mind for the past few days. When a couple breaks up, why does the girl find it so difficult to move on? Why does his name/face not leave her mind? Why does she shed tears when she sees certain movies or hears certain songs that she associates with him? And all this despite the fact that she has broken up with him. Why is the ache within so torturous?

When you love him enough to walk away

I just saw a video on Facebook which said that often a relationship, that once was based on love, breaks because A gives to B what she wants and not what B desires, and vice versa. For example, A might be giving gifts to B while what B desires is time. While this is not completely untrue, it is not completely true either. There are times when one of the partners give all that they have and yet the relationship fails.

If you are going through such a time, here’s what I have to say to you – please walk away while you still love him. Walk away while you can still remember the good times that you have spent with him. Walk away while the chord just has a few knots and is not ablaze. Walk away before everything become dust. And when you do, please don’t blame yourself or your partner for the relationship that went awry. Sometimes it is just not meant to be.

Don’t Break Up Just Yet

There is this girl I know. Let me tell you her story today.

We Hurt Those Whom We Love The Most

broken heart, hurt those we love

“How can we love someone and still hurt them? Then it’s not true love!” one may want to argue. But we all do. All of us hurt those whom we love the most, and yes, we are also hurt by them. If we are true to ourselves and admit this simple fact, yes, life will be a lot less complex. It happens in almost all relationships – parent-child, best friends, lovers, and husband and wife.

But what is the cause of this?

The Big J

feelings, emotions, human emotions, jealousy

Yup, I know. We have all heard of the big ‘O’. But this is the big ‘J’. And it’s a bigger one! God help you if it gets to you. But if you are in love, sooner or later it will.

When you become a couple you feel like being together all the while. You start thinking that only the two of you should be spending time with each other while the rest of the world can do whatever else that they want to. But this doesn’t happen. It can’t happen. There is a world beyond the coochie-coo world.
