“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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love. A strong word. A strong emotion. It is so mysteriously awesome how love can turn someone’s life upside down. I know a girl. A girl who ended up being the person she hated the most because of love.
From cheating and beating, she endured everything. She was fragile, she was kind. Everytime a man walks in her life, she’ll be left broken. Is this her fault? For many times she had been in failed relationships. Always cheated on. Always not enough. Why is it her fault?
There goes another man. A man she thought was different. A man whom her friends delightfully approve of. A man that was the complete opposite of her past lovers. A mature, understanding and dependable man. A man she thought, finally, after all the cheaters, she found the right one.
She was broken when he promised to mend her heart. He definitely knew she had nothing left but those ruins from the tragedy she had in love. He promised to make her whole again but it made her shatter worst than before. For those times that she had been cheated on, this time it was obverse.
He made her the other girl.
Just how ironic it is to think that she’s always been cheated on and now she is the other girl. Just imagine how much pain it caused her. Everytime he calls her the same endearment he calls the original one made her world crumble. But even how much pain she felt, she cant give him up. He was the guy she’s been asking for. And for the first time, she made a decision to be the same girl she hated the most.
