Mistakes in Love


I believed in this saying for so long it basically pushed me through every bad situation that I was in. Every situation in which I said,

I love you…

Sometimes love is not patient and kind. Sometimes it is envious and rude. Sometimes love fails or do you fail love?

Love is not easy to come by and not easy to keep. You have to fight for it constantly. Never let the spark die out. Relish in the little moments and life through the big ones.

We all make mistakes. Some of them hurts more than others but it is a mistake nonetheless. Sometimes the simple saying of…

I’m sorry

…doesn’t cut it because the hurt runs down that deep. It scars you and you cannot look past the pain to see how truly sorry that individual is. Or maybe it’s an act of control. Why not have your cake and eat it too?

We love because it is what we learned. We all want love and to be loved, to be safe and secure.

But at what cost does that love come with? To love someone you can never be with. To see the person who blessed you with the true purity of love and watch them slip through your fingers in a series of unfortunate events.

The purest love is selfless love. Giving up the person of your desire so others are protected…and sadly you watch from a distance with a broken heart as the person who completes you fades away. Always watching from a distance, loving you, still protecting you.

This is  selfless…pure…honest…true love.

In letting go of someone whose loved like this, you basically killed yourself. You died but you’re still breathing.

It maybe the biggest mistake you’ll make but it was selfless. You’ll regret it but you’ll make it…their happiness was more important and that will give you peace of mind.

Sometimes love fails….

…However in reality it didn’t…


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

Love is selfless…
