From Our Readers: You Have to Take Risks Again and Again
Before you lose yourself because of the heartbreaks you've been through, you were one of those who believed in the magic of love. The girl who had big hopes in her heart that someday she'll find the guy she's been praying for. The guy who would never break her heart. The guy she'll want to spend her whole life with, her Prince Charming, perfect match, happily ever after.
But the "magic of love" you've always believed in failed and hurt you a million times more than you could ever imagine. Now, you're afraid to take risks again. You swore you'd rather be alone forever than entrusting your heart for the hundredth time to someone who would just soon break it. You ended up locking your heart, and you forced yourself to believe that true love is just an imaginary thing and that it doesn't really exist. Falling in love became a nightmare to you, a very bad dream you don't like to experience ever again.
You swore you'd rather be alone forever than entrusting your heart for the hundredth time to someone who would just soon break it.
But have you really forgotten about the magic of love? What if the right guy you've been praying for is just around the corner? What if he was just late to come into your life, but he's now ready to give you the love you deserve? And you're just too afraid to notice that there's still someone good around you?
You are missing your chance, girl.
Don't be afraid to take risks if you know that this is already the right time you've been waiting for. Since your past relationships gave you so many life lessons, you now know what to do the next time you fall in love again. You've become the girl who's smart and brave enough in choosing the right person you would like to entrust your heart for the hundredth time in your life.
You won't ever fall again for a guy who's just good in telling you flowery words that have no truth in them. You would never fall into that trap again. Instead, you'll fall for the guy who would touch your heart with his kind heart.
Choose the guy who's mature and responsible. In that way, you know you could entrust him not just with your heart, but your life and future, too. Choose the guy who knows how to value you not just by giving you material things, but by treating you right. And choose the guy who knows how to wait until you tell him you're ready to love again. In that way, you will feel that he is really serious about you and that he respects you and your decisions.
If your fears are still stopping you to take risks again, just remember that God doesn't want you to suffer forever because of your pain.
Most importantly, before you let yourself fall in love again, ask God. Pray for His right timing and for that right guy. And if your fears are still stopping you to take risks again, just remember that God doesn't want you to suffer forever because of your pain. He wants you to be happy. He is still in control. And He knows what you truly deserve.
Just please don't lose hope in the power of love. Someday, you'd find out that there is nothing wrong in taking risks when it comes to love. True love is worth taking the risk for and worth fighting for.
