Today, I decided to finally pen some piece from my mind, I have be doing a lot of thinking lately, reminiscing my past love experience where I took a lot for granted. I remember a quite number of great moments and also I remember those ‘I wish this never happened’ moments. I usually do not personalise my write-ups but I beg to differ on this one. Before I proceed, I must acknowledge the fact that it’s the month of december already. Happy new month to all our readers from all over the world.
In life, we make mistakes and it is quite okay that we do, the problem lies when we don’t learn from our mistakes. Most of us made a lot of mistakes when we were dating our first love hence, it didn’t last long. I made my own mistakes too, I didn’t realise I was making mistakes until it was too late. I was very young when I first fell in love with a girl from the neighbourhood. I was about 14 or 15 years old then during high school days, we both knew we had a thing for each other with the way our eyes meets each time we cross each other’s path.
Like me, many young people took their lovers for granted when they know they shouldn’t. Man, in our funny ways craves attention and caring, but when we get a lot of it, we blow it. We put a lot of energy into making whoever we so much admire see the reason they should love us, only to blow it when they start showing love and affection. Having spoken to people what really happened to their first love and how it ended, I got to know that many of us have common problems. Most said they felt their partner was being over possessive so they called it off as they felt they needed more freedom. To be honest with you, I felt the same way.
Isn’t it amazing that what we craved is now what we detest so much. I mean I wanted to be loved and get plenty of attentions, then I got tired of the attentions because it seemed too much.
To let myself be free, I did so many things I am not proud of today, just to get rid of her. I took her for granted, she tried to keep me but I was already tired of her. Just when I realise I was losing a gold for a mere brass, it was too late, she’s made up her mind that I wasn’t the guy for her. I made mistake. Many other people I talked to made the same mistake I made. So many times, we often neglect those who love us and take them for granted.
If I have a chance to right my wrongs, I will, not because I can not carry on without her but because, I now know better that I should never take for granted who loves and care about me.
