MR Talked about Love

I don’t like the idea of, “falling in love.”

I prefer to look at love as a commitment, an everyday decision. And that takes effort, time, patience, humility, and trust. It’s not about falling, it’s about growing—
Growing in love.
Now that’s better.

I really believe that the reason why a lot of people, “fall out of love,” is because they just fell in it to begin with.
If your concept of love is based entirely on feelings, then you are bound to fall over and over and over, and it’s just gonna hurt each and every time.

The thing about growth is that it doesn’t happen overnight. It has to be cultivated, taken care of, given time, even pruned. But when it does happen, it certainly lasts.

This is why as cliché as it seems, I still believe in the foundation called friendship.

So…

Save yourself from unnecessary heartbreak.

These things take time. Love is not a feeling, it is an act of self-giving. And let me tell you this,

you can’t give yourself if you don’t own yourself.

So make the most of what you have. Open up. Discover who you truly are. Surround yourself with friends and family. Know your worth in Christ. Find your sense of security there. Allow yourself to love and be loved.

Fall in love with foreign place (Collage)

They say people in your life are season

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green

And all our eyes green, it only means one thing

We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl

Then ear to ear my lips stars to stretch

Can i fall into your constellation arm?

 

How can we choose when we all we loose is all we have?

How this used to feel so far and free?

Your skin is something that i stir into my tea

Locked inside our heaven’s cupboards

We spend it with no shame, we blow that like Coltrane

Now we here and the world is something else
