"Nothing worth having comes easy."
Yesterday at xy’s birthday party, Mark asked me if I’d already gotten “her” to say “yes”.
Without blinking i replied, ” Is getting her “yes” the only goal in courtship Can’t it not be “to love even without expecting any in return?”
I know i sound old fashioned and maybe it’s just me, growing up to my parents love story being shared at the dinner table, but I thought about mark’s question all day on my commute home to QC from Makati. Over the years, I’ve learned that although I can, I now choose not to compel someone to love me back. I’ve grown tired of the “You-owe-me” relationship trend reverberating today. I guess that’s the reason i ended up buying this shirt. Perhaps, seeing this shirt, it helps me remind myself that her “yes” is, indeed, worth having and thus will not come easily.
I am happy and I thank God for the truth of his word where I can, at least, try to love like He does, selflessly and unconditionally. Where, even though I may not receive her precious “yes”, I know I will have loved her the way she deserves to be loved, with all that I am.
