Love is Strength

Most people tend to think that love is weakness; that the moment you decide to open yourself to someone, then we are vulnerable. And in truth, that is what happens. We become vulnerable, easily hurt and broken, but it doesn’t mean it’s weakness.

Love is what makes us strong, it is what makes us want to fight to become a better us, to make a change and a difference, maybe to our own lives or to someone else’s. Love is the reason any of us live to see another day, it gives us purpose.

You watch a movie and see this scene where a girl miraculously kisses a guy who was about to die but suddenly lives and you all think “aah, what a soppy scene, that’s not real”, but in truth, that one kiss is what gave him the will to fight for life, to fight for more time with the one person who gives them a purpose to live. They “miraculously” come back to life, not because it’s just a movie,but because he had found a reason to stay alive – the movie just wants you believe that love is strong enough to make a miracle happen, to give life.

Love is the strongest emotion. Those who are lucky enough to not fear it get to know just how strong it can make them. Love pushes us to the limits we never knew we could go, it makes us believers of Hope, it makes us Fighters. Those unfortunate enough to think it’s weakness, can never truly understand how much more they could be.

How can something that makes you want to fight, to live, to conquer, to be remembered, to be seen, be considered as weakness? How can something that gives you purpose in life, a reason to be and exist, be weakness? Fear is weakness, lack of hope is weakness, being unable to see past the smaller picture is weakness – but Love will never be weakness.

If you can love, with all your heart and your being, you will be the strongest person alive. Love without fear and no barriers, and you will know what real strength really feels like.

Scary, Terrifying, Absolutely

There is this crazy, scary, terrifying thing called Love.
It comes out of nowhere.
Takes a hold of you without hesitation
Throws you against the wall and holds you there
It has no warning
And definitely no Mercy.
It does not choose who is the victim
You’ll never see it coming,
It’s not that easy.

Somehow it has a way of just happening,
and no matter how hard you try to fight it.
The weird part is that the harder you fight,
the more it takes a hold of you.
It will take you up and then bring you down just as fast,
and you might have thought the up was amazing
but oh,
you cannot begin to fathom how completely horrifying the down is

You may want to run,
Yet even the other end of the world will not be able to save you
You might wanna rip out your own heart
Just to make the suffering go away
But the reality remains,
The more you fight it,
The deeper you fall
until at some point you realize
There is nothing left to fight

Speak Up (The Love Curse)

So, I may have advised you to stand up and speak up for things that you believe are good for you – things that you know will make you a better and greater person – don’t just sit idly by while waiting for things to happen to you, you need to get up and go reach out for what you want.

The one part that I may not have explained and which most people run away from is “Love”, or as I’m beginning to call it “The Love Curse”.

Many people spend their time thinking of someone they are deeply in love with and that is about it – they sit and THINK about them and just expect that that person will miraculously wake up one day and realize he/she loves them back -well guess what, that is a huge pile of bullshit – it ain’t happening. There is no such thing as “a knight in a shining armor.” This is real life – not a fairy-tale story! People forget that when they were kids, there were given those fairy-tale stories just to help them sleep better at night – not to carry them with them into adulthood and start acting like idiots waiting for “Prince Charming.” I mean, c’mon!!! Get real people.

If you love someone, go and tell them – at the end of the day, there are about three possible outcomes.

  1. They will tell you that they feel the same and you will be overjoyed and you have just found the best thing in your life.
  2. they will pretend to feel the same and lead you on for a while before they drop you like a heavy sack of shit after using you.
  3. And third, they will not feel the same way. But the good thing is that at least you are not going to spend the next 5 or 10 years of your life pining for someone who probably hasn’t the slightest clue that you exist and you can finally move on with your life.

So then, there you have it. That’s the only way The Love Curse is gonna work out- it’s hard to call it a blessing because most of the time it is not really one.

If you really look at it, two out of three of the outcomes are a soul-crasher. But so what, life is about taking chances and still come out strong despite the challenges you face. I mean, what’s the alternative? – sit around mopping and hope that your so called soul mate is gonna come find you? Darling, please – Don’t kid yourself.

Truth is love is unpredictable and sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. But you’ll never know if you are one of the few for whom it works out or not if you never take the chance to go and find out. Some people spend ten years together and then one day one of them meets someone who makes them think the world would end if they never spend the rest of their lives together. But if they had just chosen to stay in their comfortable relationship without changing maybe they might have been happy, and maybe they will spend the rest of their lives thinking “What if” – and we all know how poisonous that phrase is.

So there you have it – The Love Curse – sometimes it works out, sometimes it goes completely out of proportion and makes you wish you could die – but you’ll never know which it is if you don’t get up and take a chance.

Leap into The Love Curse and you might just find what you are looking for.

Breath

I can’t breath, the air coming out of my nose
I can’t breath, the thoughts ringing inside my head
I can feel my body spasming
My hands reaching out
Seeking to wreck the pain growing inside me
I can feel my throat blocking out
The sound threatening to come forth
Trying so hard not to let it show
The shake and pacing
The anger building up inside
Yet the hurt and agony is so much stronger
I want to scream,  the pain will leave
I want to scream, the anger will fade
Give me a moment
I will pull it together
No, I can not
Give me a chance
I will give you everything
No, I already did
But there is nothing for me
I can see that
I can feel it
Yet here I am
I want to scream
But I cannot breath
You have taken it away
You have shut me off
Cut off my oxygen and left me to choke
The thoughts grow louder
My mind feels like an experiment gone wrong
Chemicals mixed without compatibility
So loud inside, its going to explode
I can’t breath
Please, somebody, anybody
Give me a bag of oxygen
There is no going back
I am choking on my own silence
I wanna be free
But I am locked
In your cage, there just is no escape!

I can’t breath…

Blood is Thicker than Water

You may find the title a little bit curious right? Well I don’t see anything curious in it other than two words that may be combined to form one word. First you have the word Relation, to mean relativity, in accordance to, along with and so many other ways. And then you have the word Ship to mean heavy constructed transports moving on water.

So what is it that drives me to write about these two words. First of all, we know when two things are related no matter how much you try to, you just can not separate them. People always say, “Blood is thicker than water” so, how do you separate two things that are so closely related to one another? Quite impossible right? And then you have the word Ship. Though these things make traveling over water very practical and quick, they aren’t exactly 100% reliable, as proven by that major incident of the famous Titanic. I mean at the end of the day, these ships are prone to sink. So, how is it that these words come together to form one thing? RELATIONSHIPS!

A relationship is a union between two people. Interested in one another and wanting to develop an understanding and likability of each other through that relationship. Two things of the complete opposite and yet totally complementing one another. Relation or relative is almost impossible to break, Ship is safe but not 100% reliable. But these two forces when combined together they make a great combination. A relationship is a strong bond that can not be completely broken once it has been built. Even when those two people drift apart, what they once had and shared will still be there, and that will be the Relationship, though it is prone to sink, it will never be completely forgotten, it will live on.

Nevertheless, I would like to give one important advice to all my fellows out there, who have been in relationships and been broken, who are in relationships and those who are planning on getting into a relationship. To those who’ve been in a relationship. just because it ended it doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world, nor the end of your love life, opportunities are still there, you just need to search. Stop thinking of what you lost, stop thinking of just the past and wishing you could go back. Once something has happened and passed, then let it be in the past, if it was meant to be yours then it would have remained with you on that path, but if you find yourself in the front and it is back there, then it just ain’t supposed to be with you. Let it go and move on. If you keep living in the past, you will lose a whole lot more than just that one thing/person. Stop living in the past and just enjoy the moment.

For those who are in relationships, put your best effort into it. Don’t underestimate who/what you have. It might not be the best but when you lose it, trust me, it will be. So hold on tight to what you got because a lot of people are looking for it and haven’t been able to find it. But also remember that there is never a 100% guarantee that things will turn out for the best. It doesn’t, however, mean that you shouldn’t be 100% committed to it, you have to be so you can truly enjoy what you got.

And for those who are planning to get into a relationship, I just have one advice for you: Be ready for anything! In a relationship anything can happen. You may be attracted to another person, or your partner may be, you may be jealous or the other way around. You/your partner may cheat, either one of you might get tired of the other, you will definitely fight over nothing and everything. In short, anything can happen, so please don’t blame the other before you truly know what is going on. And be attentive to one another. COMMUNICATION is the key. If you can’t communicate you might as well just end everything. Just remember, you will experience a lot of pain amongst the greatest joys and happiness!

Relationships are simply complicated that way but at the end of the day, among the disappointment there is great satisfaction.

Blood is Thicker than Wat…

Relation + Ships
