The Paradox of Love


There are so many chances in life. Sometimes they can be very transient and sometimes they can be staying for very long. Sometimes, chances pretend like they are meant for you, but they are not. Sometimes, you might be surprised by those uninviting chances.

I talked to a friend recently. He told me that we should only fall for a person if we know him/her well enough. It's not a process that happens instantly. It's no Harry Potter magic.


I used to believe in what he said - true love takes time to happen...

...Which is somewhat true.

but...

A love that happens too fast is still love right?
Love isn't measured by how fast people fall for each other right?
A bridge is a bridge regardless how fast it is built. No?


I used to believe that love is a sacred thing...

...Which is still true.

but...

If love is really sacred, why do breakups and divorces happen?
Isn't it a responsibility to keep sacred things alive?


I used to believe that falling in love is difficult. It takes two compatible heart to fall in love, and it takes time to find a compatible heart....

...Which is indisputably true.

but...

Indisputably true? What if both of us fell easily in love?

How about love at first sight? It happens right?

If both never been through stumbles and obstacles, does it mean that the love isn't true?

What if one day I decided to find a compatible heart and it took me 1 hour to find it?

How can we be sure that that's the compatible heart?

How do we even know?


I used to believe that love is so sacred that the first person you fall for, or the first person you love, should be the person that going to be loved by you forever...

...I wish this can be a solid true but it's not.

but...

This is not a solid wrong too.
It's true because we shouldn't simply give our special love to everyone.
It explains love is sacred.

If love is sacred, why do we keep falling in for another one after we fell out from love?
It's not true because we do fall out from love.
Not every first love last forever.


I used to believe that we should let the stream leads us to where we belong, and if it belongs to you it will return....

but...

If you see a beautiful shore along the stream,
would you hop off from the stream to stay?

If you do choose to stay and you stayed forever,
isn't it violating the idea where faith has a plan for us?

If you do choose to stay and you stayed forever,
it's our choice to make it happened instead of faith. No?

If we see someone we love, we fight for the love that we deserve.
It's not faith but a choice. No?
If we succeed, isn't it violating the idea where faith has a plan for us?


...What a beautiful paradox of love.

"Love is hard" - James Morrison

********************

I don't know which is true anymore because I think there is no true or false in this.
Life was supposed to be simple.

I see the things we want in life, I fight for them.

We see love, we fight for love.

I see you, I choose to fight for you.
