Love at the first sight


Assalamualaikum.

What a controversial post this gonna be, I just can imagine.

What does love at the first sight actually means? Well, I was educated to define it as to flourish and develop an admiration as soon as one person sees the subject they thought they are falling in love with. I have always thought that when a person falls in love at the first sight, that would instantly qualify to be called true love.

I mean, who am I kidding? Who on Earth romanticised love at the first sight? The actual big question is, what is love? I leave the definition to you, as love can be as subjective as one's judgement.

I don't believe in love at the first sight. First sight symbolises lies, fantasies and imaginations. I know reality sucks sometimes but absolutely nobody wants to live in lies, fantasies and imaginations. Obviously, not me.

I can easily fall in love with people with good sense of humour, but then I couldn't handle them when they are sad.
I can easily fall in love with people with strong leadership quality, but then I couldn't handle them when they asked to be led.
I can easily fall in love with people with pure heart and kind, but then I couldn't handle them when they broke my heart.
I can easily fall in love with people who loves to talk, but then I couldn't handle them when they are not talking.

See....love at the first sight has always carried certain expectations.

I wonder if people ever fell in love with me at the first sight because that would've been a recipe for disaster. I couldn't even handle myself sometimes, and I hate myself once in a while -- I am crappy.

But the thing is, I found that love is more exciting when you don't have expectations at all, yet just embrace every single strength and weakness a person could have. And you will have the chance to fall in love every single second. Love is discovering a new side of people and cherish them.

I don't remember falling in love with my parents at the first sight, I mean I have never expected them to be someone they are not. I guess that's why I love them so much. And I know they've never wanted me to be someone that I am not, they love me for who I am.

I love you.

Happy birthday, and happy mother's day.

Along.
