Do you remember your first love? Butterflies in the belly, shaking body, confused way of thinking. Everything seemed possible and so easy at that time. The world was the most beautiful place. Your heart belonged to that one person and you played with the thought that it might last for the rest of your life.
Then we grew up, got past our first love. Our hearts got broken few times along the way. As we got older, we started to think about how we can’t fall in love again like we did the first time. Different questions started to pop-up in our heads. Can I fall so madly in love again like I did when I was young? Would I feel butterflies in my stomach again? Is it even possible to experience something like this again?
The more we think about it, the more confused we get.
The answer is kind of simple. Yes, we can love again like we did! We can be so childishly in love like we once were. The only thing standing in our way is our mind. We think way too much because we want to protect ourselves in a way. We want to be more careful. At least we think that. But all we have to do is to simply let go of our fears and to stop over thinking every possible situation. We just need to relax and have faith.
Let us remember the time of our first love. We never second guessed anything. We were like the tabula rasa, without fear of getting heartbroken, without fear of letting ourselves into a relationship, without fear of what’s coming next. We just let ourselves go with the flow and actually enjoyed every moment of it.
It’s kind of the same thing as the placebo effect. It doesn’t work if we question the treatment or substance, or if we second guess its end result. If we believe and feel it’s going to work, then it will.
“All you need is love, love is all you need.”
When it comes to love, there are no such things as wrong timing or wrong situation. Those are just fears taking over us. Love knows neither time nor place. It simply exists in the now and here. Real love always comes when we least expect it. If we let it lead us its own way, everything will fall into the right place.
“If this is love
Then love is easy
It’s the easiest thing to do”
Love should really be easy. If it’s hard, then it’s not the right kind of love.
So don’t be afraid to love. If love goes both ways and if it feels right, just open your heart and let it in.
