Love is a Roller Coaster:
I know I am not alone when I admit to having had my heart broken once or twice upon a time. It’s something most of us, if not all of us, have experienced at some point or another. We fall in love, sometimes it’s just not the right fit and after a period time feel that dreadful sink in our hearts when it’s over. Some may have only experienced heartache once, others twice, and a few more of us many more times than that. Each time that I’ve had my heart broken, I came out of that experience knowing I could get through it. Even when the pain seemed unbearable Why? Because I had done it once before and the beckoning to be in love again has never died.
Love is a roller coaster. One moment we can be on top of the world feeling invincible and the next feel like we’ve fallen out of a plane without a parachute. But the amazing thing about it is that no matter how many times we’re heartbroken if we’re willing to work through that pain and come out on top having learned something about our selves and others from the experience, we can find love again.**
Call me a hopeless romantic, but I believe everyone can fall in love. It just takes time and patience. I wish I could find love tomorrow. I wish I didn’t have to search through such a big city, or go on so-so dates, be stood up, or not hear back from a guy I was interested in. But the search for love and being able to remember what it felt like when I had it makes me keep going and all the more excited to find it again.
The one kind of love I appreciate now more than ever is that of my family and friends. Sure I may not have a man to cuddle with at night or romance me consistently, but the love I feel when I’m with my girlfriends dancing the night away, or the laughs we share over my bad dates, and the embrace I feel when my mom hugs me, these are the highs of love that won’t go away after the date ends. These I get to keep and cherish every day of my life. So while you’re on your rollercoaster of love trying to find that person to share your life with, appreciate that highs and lows. Laugh about the bad dates, write down your highs so you can relive them again. And remember to keep your head high and charm the room. Because your person is out there looking for you, too.
