Love. Just how powerful that word is. It can change someone’s life either in a good way or the complete opposite of good.
People change for love. People change to be loved. People are dying to find love. Yet they don’t know the meaning of it.
Some people said love is when you have that particular person by your side every time you need them. Some people said that love is when you ‘make love’. Some people said that love is when you feel comfortable around someone.
I can call my mom and she will always be by my side every time I need her. I can ‘make love’ with some random people that I meet on the club. I feel comfortable around my best friend.
Love, is not always about you and your partner. Love can be family, friends, best friends, even enemy.
But for now, let’s just focus to you and your partner.
Many people nowadays change just to get ‘noticed’ by their crush (happens all the time in school and I used to be like that). At first you know that there is no chance for you to be noticed by him but thanks to movies and all the fiction, now you know how.
You started to ask his friends about ‘what type of girl he likes’ and when you got all the information you need, you do it on the weekend.
Doing what they call ‘transformation’.
He likes feminine girl!
You start to wear short skirt and heels to the school.
He likes skinny girl!
You do your diet, exercise, you skip dinner.
He likes smart girl!
You study every night and day.
He likes cool kids!
You started smoking, go home late.
Now look in the mirror.
Who is that you see standing there with a nose piercing and a cigarette between her finger?
It’s a fictional character you made.
Does he notice you?
So what’s your next plan?
To be with him.
But then when you feel all confident about yourself, he got a girlfriend.
I heard he got a girlfriend?
Does she look like the type of girl he like?
What does she look like?
Me before I change.
You see, people desperately change for a person they think they ‘love’ but then regrets it when it’s too late.
Look around you!
You became blind with what you call ‘love‘ you don’t even notice that there is this one person that’s always be there for you! The person who doesn’t need you to change. The person who likes you for you. The person who never leaves you.
Honey, you are beautiful just the way you are. Don’t change for someone just so that they will notice you. Even if they fall in love with you, it’s not you who they’re falling for. It’s the fictional character you made for him.
You are not a game. Don’t let people control you.
Be yourself if they don’t like you it’s their problem.
Because love doesn’t care about your appearance but what’s inside your heart.
