~Love Itself is a Choice
March 24th, 2005 by ayahnya-aira
When we meet the right person to love
when we’re at the right place at the right time,
When you meet someone you’re attracted to,
that’s not a choice.
Being caught up in a moment (and there’s a lot
of couples who get together because of this)
is not a choice.
That’s also a chance.
The difference is what happens afterwards.
When will you take that infatuation, that crush,
that mind-blowing attraction to the next level?
That’s when all sanity goes back, you sit down
and contemplate whether you want to make this
into a concrete relationship or just a fling.
If you decide to love a person, even with his
That’s not a chance.
When you choose to be with a person, no matter what,
Even if you know there are many people out there
who are more attractive, smarter, and richer
than your mate, and yet, you decide to
love your mate just the same, that’s choice.
Infatuation, crushes, attraction comes to us by
chance. But true love that lasts is truly a choice.
A choice that we make.
Regarding soul mates, there’s a beautiful movie
quote that I believe is so true about this:
"Fate brings you together, but it’s still up to you to make it happen."
I do believe that soul mates do exist.
That there is truly someone made for you.
But it’s still up to you to make the choice if
you’re going to do something about it or not.
We may meet our soul mates by chance,
but loving and staying with our soul mates is still
A Choice we have to make.
We came to the world not by finding someone perfect to love…
BUT to learn how to love an imperfect person
It is not the matter how to find someone perfect to love,
but how to love someone imperfect
Love itself is a choice
(Bunda, I choose to love you, I love the imperfect you, perfectly)
