There are different forms of love: either love for your friends, family, relatives, and most especially to God. But there’s one form of love that will tackle in this essay which I have experienced in my past days as a teenager.
Teenage love, they say is sweet, romantic and is filled with sparkling lights. When you are in love with someone, you seem to forget the whole world and that one person is the only thing worth keeping in our world. It’s a wonderful feeling when you know that you are loved and even a more wonderful feeling when you are in love. It’s not a crime to fall in love. You’re not making any mistake when you fall in love. But for instance, you confessed your feelings to that special someone and get rejected. You think that your whole life has crashed and that you are all alone in this world anymore. See, that’s the mistake. That’s when love becomes a crime. It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.
A piece of advice: don’t drown yourself in someone who treated you special, unique among the rest and cared for you whole-heartedly. Don’t assume or daydream about what you’re expecting from that person. It will only break your heart if the time comes that your expectations would disappoint you. Just be yourself and enjoy the company you have with that person because life is shot and it you don’t do what your instinct tells you, you will live a life with a bucket full of regrets.
Concluding my essay about this sensational feeling we call love. I have one last thing to say. Love is more worth it when you wait. Don’t rush and jump into conclusions, that will only lead to a heartbreak. Smile. Fall in love. Nothing’s gonna stop you.
