post valentines'

Gracie's philosophy of love is down to the basics. Honesty. But honesty makes love a struggle sometimes as the world does not think honesty is good. Or maybe, the world has grown to not embrace honesty anymore. Girls have to play hard to get and guys too. People become afraid to love because living in a world void of true honesty, they fear they have been reading the wrong signs, they fear rejection. Sometimes they fear they give too much and begin to question how much they would get back. I've received so many forwarded mails about stories which encourage honesty. "Tell someone you love them" is usually the underlying message. Yeah.. "before it gets too late". But how many actually do that? When it comes to facing the one you love, how many could ignore the 'I'.

What is love? I still can't really grasp it well. Probably true love is something only God can achieve. For me, at least I know what love does not mean. It does not mean posessing that person. Perhaps, believing that you will not have that person will allow you to be honest with him or her. Not fearing rejection, not fearing what you can get back in the end... that is how I love.

how can you tell someone you love them when you don't even know them long enough? like, maybe, but love? unless you've been together with someone long enough... more to say but not able to process my thoughts right now...

my friend... love, of course, develops over time. I think your thoughts are really unprocessed yet... What are you talking about? LOL. It takes time to be able to be honest with someone in the first place. But not all people want to be honest even with time. -grace-
