One Great Love
One Great Love.
Three words that have gone through so much experiences. The three words that have done so much sacrifice just to prove that the third word was the greatest of them all. It is the three words anyone can say, anyone can talk about, anyone can write about. But it is also the three words not anyone can feel and have. And so maybe this is why I want to write about it. Because it is something anyone can have but not everyone’s entitled to.
I have read articles from many people experiencing this and it kills me to really know what it feels. I want to feel how it is to do everything, literally everything, for the one you love. That urge to leave everything you have behind and just go for what you think is right without second thinking what you are ought to lose. The guts you’ve gathered to make a stand and prove everyone that you do not care about what they say and that everyone is just a part of the audience and they don’t know and they will never understand what you and your partner have between the two of you.
I want to be in the moment where I will not think of anyone except for my partner and just take everything by storm. I will not mind what’s going to happen day by day just as long as I am with him, I know to myself EVERYTHING is going to be okay. That being okay is not based on what’s happening with me, it’s more on what’s happening with us. I may not be personally okay but just the sight of him turns the table and makes everything a perfect experience again.
The Against-all-odds feeling, I’m dying to have it. I’m not sure if it will last, but I am damn confident I will learn so much from it. Experience is the best teacher and the hardest experience is definitely the best subject in stored for me.
One Great Love does not refer to the longest love affair you’ve ever had. It refers to the relationship you’ve done so much to keep it running, you’ve sacrificed so much of yourself to keep it going, and wherein you’ve died at some point to keep it living. It is that one relationship where all the opposites exist and that you just have to contain all of it to remain standing.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that this love is the last in your list, but it is that one entry in your book that you will never ever forget. Because it defined you and set you apart from the rest of the hopeless romantics in this world. Because you were not hopeless, you were very hopeful for it to last. You did everything for it to last. It might not be the best but it is the greatest. It may be the most painful, but you’ve surely had in it the happiest moment. And it may be the hardest, but it was surely the most well-fought battle you have ever had. Because love IS a battle. You will never know what is going to happen to you in the end but you still give in. You entered the arena alive and kicking without reminding yourself that you will die soon. Because that is the point. What is in the end DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL. Because what you have right now is more than enough for you to realize that whatever happens, you will be okay. Because things have been okay. And it’s just like that. Tomorrow will forever be just tomorrow because the present is so much more important.
And that is the power of a one great love. It changes your view. It brings you to a different paradigm. It makes you a stronger person. And it will take you to a different horizon not everyone is allowed. Because only the hopefuls can be there and only the hopefuls can stand it.
So don’t lose hope. Your ONE GREAT LOVE is just there waiting for you to be ready. :)
