When worlds collide, what do we do? Johnny Depp once said, “If you love fall in love with two people at the same time, choose the second one. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second one.”
I believe that we as humans are bound to fall in love multiple times, in our one lifetime. That to me is unconditional love. You love your first kiss, you love your “first” love. You love celebrities, you love your family, your dog. See… Multiple loves, in multiple ways.
A wise one once said “Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.”
How often do we find true love in the first place? And how frustrating is it when we find it but it comes at such an inopportune time, such as when you’re in another relationship? of course it’s ideal if you can leave the current relationship for a shot at a new one, but it’s not always that easy. Sometime you can’t leave, or other times you don’t want to leave. Do you want to settle for second place, in your day-to-day life if not your heart?
It’s hard to fall in love, but it’s even harder staying in love. The heartfelt happiness was always met with a tinge of pain because the reality was, I was with someone else.

I loved him when I left him”
