Love someone

Love someone. No, I dont mean it as a resolution...rather as a way of life. There are many reasons to be with people, to make friends, acquaintances. And many reasons not to love someone. Don't think too much about it. Do it. Completely. Utterly. Without holding back. No, I dont promise you that you will be loved back the same way in return. But what I can promise you is that you will never know the joys of loving until you do it. There is something magical in allowing yourself to open up so utterly to someone that sometimes all you see is them. Yes, you risk becoming vulnerable. You may get hurt. But its worth taking the chance.

If you get loved equally in return, its a bonus. But dont love to be loved. That wont allow you to love unabashedly. Have you ever danced in an empty park? Or your own room? When no one is watching? Not in a poetic way...have you truly ever done it? There is such a simple joy in being able to do something only because it gives you pleasure and not for any other reason.

The world becomes harder as you grow up. Your walls go up...as do those of everyone you know. Your importance in people's lives changes...you end up fulfilling expectations most of the times. Dont get bogged down. Dont love everyone...but love someone. It'll make it all worth it. Trust me.

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.

Couldn't agree more, Harnoor!! Gave this idea a shot, and now it has become a way of life. I am the kind who has danced in my room, in the rain on an empty terrace and I think once even in an empty park; and the joy of loving someone beats it all. Yes, it makes me vulnerable, I have often been hurt and may be not loved back like I would want to be, in return but like you said "..dont love to be loved" :)

Gave this idea a shot in life and yes, it IS totally worth it.
I am the kind who has danced in my room, in the rain in an open terrace, even in an empty park. The joy of loving someone so entirely and completely beats them all. Yes, it had made me vulnerable and I can't always say that I have been loved equally in return but like you said "But dont love to be loved" :)
