It’s better to have love and lost…

19 02 2009

As they say, “Experience is the best teacher”.  It makes us stronger and cautious  in doing things, and on how we handle our problems.  And sometimes, it will make you a better person, and will make you aware that life is not as easy as you thought.  You cannot say how it feels until experienced it.   Though there are things which are better not to experience (i.e.  drugs), but because of curiosity and maybe leaning on the quote itself, many had tried, trying and are planning to try it.. in spite of full endorsement against it.

But love is what most of us are very cautious about.  Many had failed, but are still trying.. some wants to try it again, but becomes more careful about it.. and some don’t want to try it anymore, because of fear and hatred.  But “it’s better to have loved and lost, than not to have loved at all”.  Love is the most wonderful, yet the most dreadful feeling of all.  There’s a feeling of contentment when you’re with the person you love, and the wanting of time to move slow or better stop when you’re together.  But because there’s no such thing as “perfect” in this world, misunderstandings and the so called “third party” comes in a relationship, and if not handled well or if it’s really impossible to fix.. it ends to break up and hatred.

We should not be afraid of falling in love because it will just come and go.  If it did not worked on the first, then try on the second, and on the third, until you find the right one for you.  We will never know the true value of life if we don’t fall in love.  Because, admit it or not, you feel empty inside though you don’t show it outside.  There’s a destined person for each of us, we just have to be patient and open for the possibilities.

From Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem In Memoriam:27, 1850:

I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
