Everyday really is an opportunity to learn something new. And yesterday, I learned something about Love.

I learned a very essential factor about Love. I learned that when you love someone, he/she doesn’t need to know you love him/her. I learned that answers need questions before they’re said. I learned that if you want your love to be reciprocated, it’s not love at all; but you’re just looking for a relationship. I learned about how loving someone is different from being in love to someone. And most of all, I learned that you should continue loving even if it hurts.

I admire those people who still continue to love even if they’re continually being hurt (intentionally or unintentionally). I admire those people who still continue to love even if the ones they love don’t even know they’re being loved. I admire those people who are capable of loving even if they don’t get something back in return.

Pag-ibig nga naman. It can make you do a lot of things. It can also teach you so many things. Sa aking pananaw, ang pag-ibig ay ‘di maikakahaon sa isang relationship; ito’y di maipapakita sa simpleng flowers at chocolates; ito’y ‘di maipapaalam sa mga salitang binibitawan; ito’y ‘di basta-basta matatapos sa rejection ng minamahal mo; at ito’y hindi basta-basta mawawala gaano man kasakit ang idinudulot nito sa’yo. Dahil gaya ng isang marangal na mamamayan, hindi mo naman kailangang tumakbo sa isang posisyon para makatulong sa maraming tao; sa pag-ibig, hindi naman kailangang maging “kayo” para maipakita niyo ang pagmamahal sa isa’t-isa. Tama na ang mga simpleng gestures para maipakita mo sa kanya na mahal mo sya. At kung umiiyak ka man gabi-gabi, it’s all worth it kasi at least naipapakita mo kung gaano mo siya kamahal.

Sabi ng isang kaibigan, “siguro tamang sabihin kapag tinanong. Pero kung hindi, tamang ipakita.” May point siya. Hindi naman kailangang malaman ng taong ‘yun kung mahal mo nga siya, kasi kung ipinagduldulan mo ‘yon sa mukha niya, isa lang ang ibig sabihin non: gusto mong masuklian ang pagmamahal na ibinibigay mo sa kanya. Kaya mabuti na lang na manahimik kayong dalawa (o ikaw, for that matter) at damahin at ipadama na lamang ang pag-ibig na mayroon kayo para sa isa’t-isa.

Lastly, I would like to make this point: Love need not be said for someone to appreciate it. Kung mahal mo talaga ang isang tao, patunayan mo, ipakita mo ‘yon sa kanya. Love can survive even if it’s one way; you can show and show your love without taking love in return. A relationship, on the other hand, requires two-way. And lastly, remember that love is not a noun, it’s a verb. It’s not something you give to someone, but it’s something you have to show to someone. Ginagawa. ü

    No one really knows what love is. It’s like living. You want to know what it is but ends up ignoring the fact you don’t know a thing about it…
