Love & Life - Oh Really?

Love and Life by Albert Einstein

Sometimes in our relentless effort to find the person we love, we fail to recognize and appreciate the people who love us. We miss out on so many beautiful things simply because we allow ourselves to be enslaved by our own selfish concerns.
- this is possible. but i dont entirely believe that trying to find the person we love is ALL selfish. although there are aspects of this process that will tend to lean on the selfish side, i still think we should give the benefit of the doubt. kawawa naman eh...

Go for the man of deeds and not for the man of words, for you will find rewarding happiness, not with the man you love but with the man who loves you more.
- but still, hearing the words will give us the kilig factor once in a while, di ba?
- umm, before i was not really in favor of choose the one who loves you more, but nowadays, i'm starting to believe it's better to do so.

The best lovers are those capable of loving from a distance far enough to allow the person to grow but never too far to feel the love within your being.
- ano daw? ah, ok... yung nagbibigay ng space for growth and not the one who'll suffocate you. ok, gets na...

To let go of someone doesn't mean you have to stop loving, it only means that you allow that person to find his own happiness without expecting him to come back. Letting go is not just setting the other person free, but is also setting yourself free from all the bitterness, hatred, and anger that you keep in your heart.
- ah, that's why it's so hard to do...very few get past this stage... because there will always remain this "kurot" everytime you see, talk with, or bump into the other person, whether he/she is with another person or alone

Do not let the bitterness take away your strength and weaken your faith, and never allow pain to dishearten you; but rather let yourself grow with wisdom in bearing it.
- this i'd agree with. Amen Einstein!

You may find peace in loving someone from a distance not expecting something in return. But be careful, for this can sustain life but can never give enough room for us to grow. We can all survive with just beautiful memories of the past, but real peace and happiness come only with open acceptance of what reality is today.
- eto magulo. kanina, maganda raw yung loving from a distance kasi merong room to grow. ngayon, e hindi na hindi na advisable yung merong room to grow?! teka ha... magulo pa rin. i think... parang when you let go of the person and you keep on loving him/her from a distance and you do not expect him/her to come back, it's ok, it will help you survive for a while pero destructive naman pag tumagal because it will not help you to learn from the experience and you'll end up getting stuck with the beautiful memories instead of making new ones. you will be happier and more at peace if you learn to accept the facts whole-heartedly. (para namang horoscope ang tunog nito... **Aries... malalaglag ka sa silya mo at sasakit ang iyong tyan katatawa...**hehe...)

There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone so nice and beautiful and we just find ourselves so intensely attracted to that person. This feeling soon becomes a part of our everyday lives and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part of it is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than just a friendship.
- parang easy attraction, pero one-sided. more on you misinterpreted the goodness, sweetness and thoughtfulness of the other. friends lang pala kayo para sa kanya. **We're just friends... Showbiz!

We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer, but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up being sorry for ourselves.
- hehe, dali nito... - busted!!!

You don't have to forget someone you love. What you need to learn is how to accept the verdict of reality without being bitter or sorry for yourself. Believe me, you would be better off giving that dedication and love to someone more deserving.
- why does it seem that this thought is haunting me?!

Don't let your heart run your life, be sensible and let your mind speak for itself.
- yep, either way, you still get in trouble.

Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well. Always remember that if you lose someone today, it means that someone better is coming tomorrow. If you lose love that doesn't mean you failed in love.
- at least the last two statements are truthful. believable to say the least. and when talking o yourself, listen to all the voices going around your head, even if masyadong sarcastic or harsh yung iba. it'll turn out that they're better advisers... :) na pwedeng hindi mo rin sundin.. hehe

Cry if you have to, but make sure that tears wash away the hurt and the bitterness that the past has left with you. Let go of yesterday and love will find its way back to you. And when it does, pray that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime.
- huhuhu... ok, fine. crying is a little therapeutic nga naman...

There are two ways to live your life:
One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- wow, hevi...

There is no mistake so painful that love cannot forgive. no past so bitter that love cannot accept.
- martyr naman, pero it's always possible.

And no love so little that we cannot start all over with.
- true. or false. i still have to find out for myself.
