"The concept of love is so absurd. I mean, it's just pain wrapped up in the most beautiful form of pleasure which attracts us in a way we can't refuse. You know, I don't hate to be in love, I am just scared of it. I am scared to fall for someone who pretends to be sure about me, but isn't. And honestly, it's hard to fall in love with me. I have learnt to not give away myself so easily", she smiled a bit, and with tears in her eyes, she confessed her deepest fear. "I wonder if I will ever know what true love is. I wonder if I will ever find a person who would conquer my demons and remind me of the angels which once used to reside in me. I just wonder if I will ever be loveable", she blurted out, and looked straight into my eyes, and fell on my shoulder, sobbing badly. I was at loss of words, for I had never known what true love is like. But one thing I was sure of, was that, no person is hard to love. It's just about realising the beauty of thorns and the petals all together, for it's the flaws and the beauty, which makes us what we are.
I wiped her tears, and looked into her eyes, and said, "listen, you are that beautiful star which everybody wishes upon, but can't have. You know, you are as vibrant as the blazing sun and as charming as the soothing moon. You are filled with love inside out, and there's absolutely noone who can refuse to fall in love with you. But it's you, who has to know the right person. And for knowing the right one, you have to know yourself. Don't just judge yourself based upon why someone left you. In fact, stop judging yourself. Love isn't a prize to be won, or a race to be completed first. It's a never ending journey, with various ups and downs, and well, there's pure happiness in every step of it. Trust me, you are beautiful enough to melt the stars. Just don't ever disregard yourself", and I stopped speaking for a while. She held my hand and leaned on my shoulders and in that breathtaking silence, I felt her smile, and for the first time, I understood love.♥️
