First Love. The reason why we think first love is beautiful is not because people we first love were actually handsome or pretty. It is because we were unconditional, innocent, or a bit stupid at the time of the first love. And because, we know that we can never go back to that young, passionate time of our days.
First love is a bit rash. Without any calculation or judgement, we throw ourselves with passion and finally come to face with failure. But it is at the same time dramatic. It comes with inexplicable feelings that we never get to experience again. So, first love becomes the most dramatic moment of our
life. It is okay to fail. Tragic stories stays longer than ‘happily ever after’. It’s nice to have that wonderful story as one chapter of one’s life.
First love is a period of time. It never comes back. If the next love comes, time has to yield for that new love. It might not be as innocent as the first love, but it will be a little more mature due to the pain suffered with the first love.
A person who dreams of love is the one who waits. And a person who waits can recognize the love when it comes near them.
After the romance, the real life kicks in. Innocence gets dirty, passion gets cold, and youth gets old with cleverness. So, first love become parts of one’s exhausted daily life. That’s why first love looks like it can’t be accomplished because no one talk about a successful romance with first love.
Thus, it is okay to be like this. Even though, there isn’t a tragic drama in our life but there is a familiarity like an old sweater and if we get tired, there is an excitement to wear it back. Don’t you think so?
How bout you? Where did you first fall in love? 💏
