Choose

Somebody told me that we can’t choose to whom we’d fall in love with. But I’d say we can always choose to whom we’d stay in love with.

Otherwise we would fall in love too many times for too much wrong people.

It’s not that it’s wrong to fall in love, but having several experiences with love before, we tend to build walls to protect ourselves from the outside world. It’s encoded in our DNA to stay safe from anything that might hurt us.

There are just so many amazing new people in my life that I’m so grateful for. These are inspiring people whose fire within burns inside me as well.

I have been in both places:

Denying to see infatuation as my guide;

or diving into it head over heels and embrace it so tight, no matter the consequences.

I have been both a brave and a coward.

But only lately I found that I might have done all the things in the name of love to actualize myself. I was looking to find myself in the relationships I had. Sometimes I became so excited and sometimes I became so terrified of what I found within me.

I asked too many questions, but I can’t NOT do that. I can’t afford to just go anywhere the wind blows. And if the journey take long because I was going against the wind, I don’t mind. And if I don’t get to where I wanted to be, I don’t mind either. At least I know that I’m enjoying all the journey.

I would summarize this by the lyrics from The Beatles’ last recorded album:

“And in the end

the love you take is equal to the love you make”
