“Do you fall in love often? Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.” — Jeanette Winterson (Gut Symmetries)

These days people are fixated with falling in love, but really it is the idea of falling in love that they are obsessed with. Words are powerful. If you learn to read between the lines, you’re not only encapsulated by the meaning within those words, but you also realise that they offer you new perspective. I love this quote because today I have realised that falling in love does not necessarily mean finding Mr. Right/’The One’/Tuxedo Mask/your ‘other half’ or whatever you wish to call them. Instead, falling in love, for me at least, means finding what it is your heart is searching for through the beauty hidden in this crazy world of ours. In my 21 years of existence, I have realised that I have fallen in love countless times, with not only people, but pets I’ve had through the years, beautifully crafted poetry, cute things, weird things, and most recently, myself.

Sometimes it’s ok to cry

I don’t cry much, but there used to be a time that I did. We all bottle up feelings at some point or another. How do you vent those emotions? Crying is an intense surge of mixed emotions. It’s a way in which you don’t hurt others physically or through words you regret later on. For me, it’s a way of letting go. Crying rids the pain, so that the heart, soul, and mind is filled with less resentment, anger and frustration.

This article is beautifully written with insight that’ll make you realize that the next time you cry, “It’s ok”.

those who sow in tears shall reap in joy..
