ON LOVE STORIES

Would Cinderella be beloved if she didn't have those cruel stepmother and sisters? Would we still like Snow White if she didn't bite that poisoned apple? If the Beast was a normal prince, would Beauty and the Beast be interesting?

Love stories, the real life ones, are very interesting to listen to. To read about. It gives us hope. Make us believe. It's always great, specially if they ended happily.

But behind the destined kiss. Before those three words are sincerely uttered. The people behind them, they go through love's ups and downs. The ups are always great, but just as well are the downs. The partners exes, complications, the baggages, our friends who disagree, anything that's attached when it comes to gay relationships, all these things that test how strong the foundations of love have been built upon.

No matter how bad that makes us feel about our relationships, it's what makes our love stories great.

If my love story consisted of meeting and falling for my kid, you'd probably get bored. Heck, I'd be bored and might already be single two months ago. Yeah, I cried alot before we became what we are. Yeah several goodbyes were attempted, and they were each equally depressing. But that's fine. In the end it was all worth it. All these things, they're just spices that make our stories interesting.

On love stories, what's important is we believe, we found, we loved, and we fight for it.

Isn't that what love stories are all about?

********************
For those who believe, look and fight for love.

For those looking for someone who'll make them smile.

To quote: it was worth it.

Ah, such a valiant and honorable statement.

And the best part of it all, you keep your word to your kid and to yourself...

What is a story if not for its conflict? And is it love if it is not tested in fire? Wala lang.. I agree, mabobore ka kung walang conflict. Wag mo lang sigurong hanapin actively, lol

I believe we must all learn how to make ourselves smile. Then it becomes easier for us to make others smile.

I guess the reason why we expect gay relationships to last at 3 to 6 months because they don't fight for their love.

Good entry. Crush na kita. ECHOZ.

I guess, it's time for you to fight the big fight. =)

Bon courage, Engel. The road ahead will not be easy, but you already know that. When times are tough, you can always go back to this entry and remember how hopeful you felt at this moment in time.

on love stories, we don't just believe, or loved or fought for it.

on love stories, we learned lessons, too.

Mac Callister said...

we all make our own love story,its all depends on both parties how to make its ending,whether a good or a bad one.

and no love story is good without the fights,problems and make ups...
