I was watching this Jayesslee video cover of Pink's song called "Try" the other night and it triggered some thoughts…(By the way, patient I absolutely love this cover. Who doesn't love Sonia and Janice anyways? If you haven't seen this video yet, remedy I suggest that you hit the play button!)
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Although, I honestly think it's a commercial thing, many couples still celebrate. If I have a boyfriend, I would probably enjoy celebrating that day as well with my other half.
Being in love is such a wonderful feeling, isn't it? I believe that in one way or another, at some point in our young or adult life, we have been in love or at least we "thought" we have. But no matter how amazing and sky-soaring the feeling of being in love is, there's always a risk in opening up ourselves and giving our heart to someone. Somehow, there's that uncertainty what the person is going to do with your heart at the end of the day. Will they take it and cherish it or will they go and break it? However, just because there's always that "unknown" factor, doesn't mean that you're not going to risk it. What I have learned is that LOVE is a decision. When all the sparks die down, one has to decide whether to stay or walk away.
Unfortunately, to some, they risked it and got their hearts broken. I know I have. I must admit that I have been on both sides of the spectrum – one who has got her heart broken and one who has broken some hearts. That's a whole another story.
I guess I'm writing this for those who are feeling lonely and depressed because Valentine's day is coming. Perhaps, some jerk (oops did I say that?!) left you wandering and wondering, with so many questions on your mind. Don't let this one "commercial" day kill you. I think it's a bit silly to let the upcoming occasion which was created by money-making moguls determine your mood in the next few days. Although, I can also say that I can't blame you. Been there, done that. Haven't we all?
Just believe that TRUE LOVE will find you…sooner or later. Don't be skeptical about it. Don't be afraid to risk all over again. One disclaimer though: Be careful and very picky of whom you will once again give your heart to. To the person who broke your heart, bid him or her goodbye and let go. Someday, you will look back and realize why it didn't work out and will be thankful that it didn't. *Wink*
In closing… let me tell you what my mom would always tell me whenever I'm heartbroken: "Hold your head up high, put your shoulders back, and smile!"
