When love beckons you
By Kahlil Gibran
When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you, believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, so shall he descend to our roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
But if, in your fear, you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor, into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but it self and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not, nor would it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a payer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
Unconsciously, we are legally old enough to get married. It is justifiable for the young of such an age to long for a romantic or an unforgetable relationship. In addition, to choose one you love more or one loving you more is always a question afflicting innumerable individuals. However, it is widely acknowledged that a fundation of mutual affection is indispensible. Besides that, all can be a matter of personal perferences. After all, one`s meat can be another man`s poison. Love, to me, is like a box of chocolate. You never know what suits you best until you taste it. Hope everyone can find his/her Ms./Mr. Right and enjoy aging together.
Long-distance relationship is not easy. I've been there, so I know exactly how it feels. When freshness become routine, when excitement become boringness, you will feel disgruntled and lonely. A text is not enough to boost your mood; a phone-call can’t help you with your computer problems. You need a hug, a shoulder, a hand, in other words, you need him by your side.
Difficult as it is, it doesn't mean long-distance relationship is impossible. Here are some tips that I draw from my experience:
1. Stop lying on your former easy-help hand. Learn to handle problems that you can’t handle before, like fixing up your computer.
2. Maybe you're a lone wolf, but now you have to become a social animal, because you need friends. But remember to keep distance with the opposite sex.
3. Find a goal that both you and your boyfriends are interested in, then fight for it. This will create a common topic, so that you are connected.
Long-distance relationship is a tough test but also a benefit. After you walk through this, you'll find you become a strong, independent and well-connected person.
There is an old saying Distance breeds beauty. Some people apply this quote as the distance relationship. However, this only refers that personal space is important and indispensable within a relationship. Living apart for a long time, as far as I am concerned, will eventually jeopardize your relationship with your partner.
Firstly, in my opinion, love is about sharing. Long-distance relationship makes two people who in love live in a different life. And gradually, the partners will lose their common topics in life, which does great damage to the relationship. Secondly, geographically, distance is a huge problem. It is unpractical for one to give an instant care to his or her partner when he or she is in long distance relationship. Especially when you are ill, lack of company makes you feel even worse. And in the last, emotionally, long-distance relationship is a big challenge to each other’s belief. In other words, both two people in a relationship have to be confident enough about the future.
In a word, love is like a joint venture company. Only if two members are working for the same target, there comes a happy ending.
