Love Story

Im a sucker for romance. I have this guiltry pleasure of wasting a few hours to have a fill of romance stories. I read PHR and Harlequin stories and lately, wattpad stories. 

I love romance stories maybe because I don't have one of my own, or I wish one for my own or I cant keep one of my own. 

The plot of the stories would sometimes be shallow but still I'd finish the story or there would really be those I would finish with eagerness because I love the flow but for both, the ending would always be the best part. Predictable as it may seem, I would still read the ending that the protagonists ended up together. The elements of the story are there. The setting, characters, conflict, solution and the ending. In the end, the characters would stick together, in love with each other. The same characters who had gone through a lot of challenges, fights and doubts as their conflicts, end up together. 

I have read so many books about love yet whenever I get into a misunderstanding, the only thing I can think of is to turn my back and leave. Because I fear that if I stay a little longer, I'd be the one whose gonna be left behind. In my head, I find it bold to be the first one to leave instead of fighing what I ought to last for a lifetime. Let go and find somebody else. And I call myself learned when I only know one thing. In reality, leaving is for the weak soul. For the scared and for the lost.

In my alter universe, love exists. In my reality, it's the opposite. 

Maybe, that's why hopeless romance exists. Because there are people who really are hopeless when it comes to love. I know nothing else but leaving. I have yet to learn the idea of acceptance, humility, respect and trust.  

Until the day comes that I can put my alter universe reality into my real reality, until I am brave enough to stand up and accept that I am missing a piece, until I am humble enough to accept my fault, until I am strong enough to trust myself that everything will work out fine, until I learn to value the worth of having someone and respect for having that someone, that being together is worth every fight, maybe then, I'd find that love. 

Maybe I'll even write about it. Or I'd be selfish and keep it to myself. Nonetheless, I'd have somebody to share with, fight with and then patch things up with again. The cycle goes while the bond gets stronger. One day I'll wake up being truly brave and ready to trust myself that I can be able to handle things differently. 

Until the day that someone believes I can...

A love story that is mine and that is true.

  3. Hello, love stories are different and real love is different. When the right moment comes you will fall in love without even knowing about it. Well, real love is very painful. Sleepless nights, lack of appetite, not interested in anything except the lover, staring vacantly at people, not listening to what people say and so on. A person struck with love lives in a dream world.

    Hopefully, cupid will strike you soon and then remember my words.

    Best wishes

  5. Naku pareho tayu, i have flight tendencies talaga lalo na kapag alam kong darating na ako sa point na magiiwanan na kami. :( huhuhuhuhhu.

    I guess you should try ricky lee's novels. Para Kay B at "Si amapola sa 65 na kabanata" madming take aways para sa love stories doon, kahit hindi happy ending ang ilan sa mga ending ng stories niya, along the way may mga matutnan ka tlaga. :)

    1. I have a copy of Para Kay B and I really liked the reality of love stories that came with it. Sabi ko dati, I'll buy Si Amapola but due to priorities and budget constraints, di ko na pa rin nabibili.. Hopefully, mabili ko na soon :) :)

  8. Babysep, Due to clumsiness, I had accidentally removed your comment which really hit a lot of nerves on me. The thing is, I do not have a love story that is too good to be true nor a love story that aint good to walk away from or even fight for at the moment. Im not losing hope that it will come at the perfect time. You will know for sure :) I miss you!
