Day 14 of “21 Beautiful Days Before Turning 21”
The beauty of desiring with all your heart’s might and soul’s sincerity is truly manifested when you do not complain and curse if things don’t go your way. Everyone likes the rose for when it blooms, there’s grace and elegance; the colors of its petals match a certain beautiful feeling but I don’t think I’ve ever heard someone say they love a rose because of its thorns, most people would even have the thorns removed so their hands won’t get nicked. First of all you are hurting it because you took away a part of it and most of all, it makes you selfish for only caring about what you feel,love is not for your convenience but for your patience. If you enjoy something and it starts to get bad would you just take it for granted?Think of someone you love whose existence is the grandest and yet how they exist is also the most difficult to you, would you really stop holding on to the feeling?
The more things hurt, the more love should grow. Please do not avoid pain.
