True love.

I don't dare to say that I know much about love. I am far from an expert on this topic, and who can blame me, I'm only a little girl in the world. I used to be a silly one, too. But slowly, I am learning the meaning of true love. I have learnt in the past year that love is so much more than sweet words from the lips of someone which give you butterflies in your stomach.

While I know that love makes us willing to sacrifice of ourselves for another person, have you ever had to give up on your own happiness for the good of the other person? What I mean to say is, have you ever been faced with a situation where the person has had to choose between his/her lifelong dream, or you?

I love many. I love easily. Just like how I laugh with all my being when I hear something funny, I also love with my entire being. If I love you, I am willing to let go of my happiness if that means that you are happy. I would want you to know that though I love you so very much, and there is nothing more that I want than to be able to be with you, there is actually something more that I want. And that is seeing you happy.

So if ever someone is uncertain whether to leave me behind to pursue their dreams, I would tell them "Please, believe me, just go." For the happiness that is awaiting you is so worth the sacrifice of not being able to be with you.

And once I realized this about myself, I think I can safely say that I do know what true love is now. I wish you only the best.
