“How can you love like you’ve never been hurt before if the pain of losing someone you love is unbearable?”

“Work like you don’t need money,

Love like you’ve never been hurt,

And dance like no one’s watching.”

I remember some well meaning elders told me, “Find a husband who will love you more than you love him. Do not give everything, so you will never get hurt.”

When I am in a relationship, I believe in giving my all. I know, might not be the smartest thing to do sometimes. Especially after I come of a relationship that does not work out, I wonder if I can truly love again. But somehow, as time goes by, and when I meet the right guy, I will give it my best shot.

Because I believe in this. Be it in relationship, work, or life in general. If you give it your everything, and if it does not work out, you know you have tried your best. But it you know deep down you have held back, you will always look back and regret not ‘trying a bit harder’. And then, there will be that BIG ‘what if’.

Life is too short to have to live with ‘what ifs’.

Yes, losing someone is difficult. Losing someone is sometimes so unbearable that you do not want to live anymore.

But if we do not give it our best shot, we might never find love again.
