A different perspective… That’s what we need when we are too deep in it. I feel as if I was drowning in the sea of a relationship and there was no lifebelt to grab onto anywhere. In those times the easiest way out is comfort, support, sweet words and a hug.
Our friends. What would we do without them? They are there to listen to our happy and romantic stories about our love life. They are there when we are down, when we feel blue. A friend’s advice. Words of value. Fall in love million times a day. With the smell of morning coffee, sunshine, freshly cut roses, a handsome man walking towards you down the street, a cupcake, that sexy neighbor’s smile.
Life flows through me and when I see clearly enough I find beauty in the smallest details. And that’s the best path leading to a happy relationship, with yourself and your partner. It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all, said Alfred Lord Tennyson. I cried for over twenty-four hours when I broke up with my first boyfriend. I had to let it all out. And my friends were there. I had a shoulder to cry on. With time pain started to fade, nice memories stayed. If I could go back in time, I would do it all over again. I agree with Lord Tennyson.
Start your day with an open heart. Observe. Get involved. Every day is a surprise. There he was. Reading a label on a pesto sauce. I couldn’t resist the temptation. We went on five dates. I had so much fun but it was obvious to both of us our relationship wouldn’t become romantic. The beauty of it all was I let myself go and simply enjoyed the moments. I wasn’t trying to force the idea that he was or had to become Mr. Right. So he felt free and showed me his real side. We still keep in touch. We still laugh together. Doing yoga in the park his dog came to greet me. I said yes to coffee. He was always on my mind. I was all his.
After four years we said goodbye. It will stay in my heart forever. I followed my instincts. I listened to my inner voice. I was relaxed. I enjoyed and accepted things as they came. Love knows no limits. My love was far, far away. He lived in a different kingdom. Long-distance relationship. On and off again. My prince asked me to marry him and I said yes. We were living the illusion. The more the reality brought us together, the less we were together. It couldn’t have been. And again my friends helped me understand why. For a while there it was all so quiet. Till I found a reason to smile again. After every storm the sun comes up.
