I remember an advice I gave someone before. I asked him if it was really love that he was feeling for someone or has he just fallen in love with the idea of loving that someone. Too many of us mistake the feelings we have towards a person as love. We easily jump to the conclusion that indeed we have fallen for that person. We sometimes neglect to re-examine our feelings to trace where it's coming from.

I remember telling him that in my opinion, what he was feeling was not love, at least not yet. I acknowledge that he indeed have strong feelings towards that person, but i think not enough to call it "love." 

Strong feelings. At that time, it was easy for me to say it. It was easy to give an advice without even understanding how he must have felt.

But now I somewhat get the idea of strong feelings. There's that attraction you feel with out having an explanation. For me, it's the butterflies I feel in my stomach when I am having a conversation with him. It's also the smile that I can't get rid of when I think about him. And the sadness I feel when I realize that he's not mine.

However, before I even get swallowed up with my strong feelings, I try to snap back and remind myself that nothing will come out of it. It's pointless to nurture those feelings and let it flourish. I should just believe in the saying that emotions are fleeting, and this shall also pass.

    - Do you know how wonderful to fall in love? Do you know how exciting it is? the adrenalin rush of falling? for me ah nobody has the right to say that falling in love is pointless. "yeah you bleed just to know you're alive" - Iris; Goo Goo Dolls

  2. Rus: yeah, I guess nobody has the right to say that falling in love is pointless to someone else. But it's ok to say it to yourself :D
