to love is to let go

what is love? one might ask. love is abstract, and how you elucidate it, wholly depends on the individual themselves. the topic of love never bores the human mind. its interpretation is ever changing, ever evolving and yet, is still dumbfounding.



the meaning of love might differ from each person with different religions, ethnicity, age, gender, and backgrounds. to a couple growing old, love might represent the years they have been together, and how they would maybe one day die in the hands of each other. to teenage lovers, love might signify their promises and hopes, which to their adolescent minds, everything is possible. and to a married couple, love could mean, as cliche as it is, staying together for the kids.



all these are the more specified definition of love. how about its general interpretation? does love mean caring about each other. does love show by showering one with gifts? is love felt when your heart races each time you are near that one person, and your eyes automatically searches for that person everytime you enter a room? does it mean that you love someone when you cant stop thinking about that person, and you want to be with him/her at all times?



and yet again, can it be called love when there is only one person involved in something that is supposed to be a two way road? and in this said 'road', will there be any signboards to help us through, or even billboards to advertise a way out when we've had had enough? will there be speedtraps and bumps, that would slow us down when we're going too fast, and traffic lights that would tell us when to stop when the time is right? or are we all alone in this road, with no guidance what so ever, and the only voice we could hear comes from our heart?



yes, i do ask a lot of questions. but its all for a good cause. there is this saying, "to love is to let go". loving someone means letting them go, giving that person freedom to do whatever he/she wants. tell me, how many people actually believe in that? in letting go i mean. letting go is hard, and i am saying this from personal experience. i am pretty sure you have experiences similar like mine. so what is the deal with this 'let go' thingy? that is one question that remains to stagger the human mind. my mind, to be exact.



oh well, i leave you guys to answer my questions. you might not agree with me, but again, theres another saying that goes "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder". so there :)



one more thing, can you put a valid period on love? ofcourse you cant right? be wise guys

have u ever heard the story of two mothers n a child?the story xingt sgt but something like 2org ibu bergaduh berebut seorg bayi.keduanyer mengaku that bayi is theirs.then they mengadap their raja wutever to solve their problem.we all know that one of them is lying.but how the raja prove it?that raja ask them to grab both of the baby’s hand each,sorg kiri n sorg kanan and pull the baby to them as hard as they can… who pulls harder will win n get the baby. So, the 1st mom dh ready to fight and grab the right baby’s hand, but the other one trus mengalah…
she said, if that the only way to prove them that the baby is hers, she prefers letting go.she rather hurt herself than hurting the baby.
In the end, we all knew who is the real mother to that baby even she didn’t get the baby to herself.
To think back.. the reason we can’t let go is bcos we want it for ourself, n we are actually afraid to hurt our own’s. it’s better if we know that someone we love is happy with someone else because we won’t be happier if we know that they’re unhappy with us.

Rite?

P/S: now I feel like a real stalker reading ur blog. So, I leave u a comment,now that u already knew that I read yours, n I’m officially not ur stalker nemore.haha…
