Honestly, this goes out to everyone that’s been so troubled, so confused, so bothered by a bad relationship. Sometimes it’s our fault. We were being stupid, being dumb, being stubborn.
But honestly, you don’t find love. It doesn’t work that way. Love finds you.
When the time is right, everything will fall into place. There’s three components to success as illustrated in Sunzi’s Art of War - time, place, and people. The right time isn’t as important as the right place. But being at the right place isn’t as important as being with the right people.
Maybe I’m a bit logical and all but I believe that if it’s not the right person, then it’s not meant to be even if it’s the right time and the right place. Mr. Right/Ms. Right might be around the corner; but they’re probably thinking the same thing as the heartbroken you is thinking right now.
I’ve learned a lot about relationships. Maybe not love because it hasn’t quite come to the time yet.
First and foremost, there are only two routes in a relationship — you either end up forever together or you get separated. Once you that fact gets drilled into your head, everything will be easier to accept.
Through every bad relationship, you learn something about yourself. True, you go in to a relationship whole but leave only half — but it’s like chiseling. Everyone is born as a blank piece of marble with a soul waiting to be freed. Every heartbreak chisels us into who we ultimately are, like what Michelangelo does to his sculptures.
Mistakes. We make them often. What do you have to lose, though? If it’s yours, it will return to you eventually. If it is not, then just let it go.
There’s a Chinese legend that says every pair of soulmates are connected by an invisible red thread. Perhaps there’s already someone made for you somewhere on the other side of the world. One day, your roads will cross.
Don’t try to hurry yourself into a relationship. The right one will come by. And getting hurt is inevitable. Every pang of dejection teaches us how to be a human. And every tear that we shed reminds us that we are only human.
I’ve never really been a total Lord of the Rings sort of girl, but I think it taught us to be courageous. I was always the Narnia girl and it taught me to imagine. I admit — I was never a dead-crazy fan of Harry Potter girl either. But I grew up with Harry and Ron and Hermione. And if there’s one thing from the story I can say I learned, it would be to believe in magic.
When you finish the last page of the book, the last minute of the movie… you realize that like Harry, you have to grow up. But just because we’re growing up doesn’t mean we have to reject the idea of magic. At the end, yes, we realize that Harry Potter is but a story because if it’s not a story, where is J.K. Rowling?
But even so, I’d like to think that I was there all the time. From the Philospher’s Stone right down to the Deathly Hallows. I was by Harry, Hermione, Ron, Luna, Ginny, the Twins — all of them.
And I think that’s the beauty in the works of J.K. Rowling. She made us believe. Not just magic, but in ourselves, in friendship.
There would always be a part of Potter in me.
And in the end, it really goes to show how amazing literature is.
LORD OF THE RINGS was in the mystic past.
NARNIA was in an alternative universe.
HARRY POTTER was in a magical world that co-existed with the muggles.
