It’s Real, and It Always Prevails
True love is the strongest potion that can counter poisons dispelled by life’s dark side.
No, it doesn’t always come with a fairy godmother or splendid castles. It doesn’t only happen in movies and fairy tales. True love exists in our world.
It can happen to anyone. It can definitely happen to you.
But real love isn’t only about stars aligning at the right moment, or a stupendous kismet, or making the butterflies in your stomach come alive. It’s a very expensive commodity not everyone may buy from Cupid. Mind you, the currency is not in dollars. The payment comes in the form of sacrifice, courage, and commitment.
Now, do you know the most important thing about this type of affection? It always prevails. If you don’t believe that, then you ought to look around.
You can see it in the old couple still in love with the person she has vowed to love forever. They have conquered the challenges of reality long after the honeymoon phase was gone. And every day, as they grow older, side by side, their love also gets stronger. It’s the kind of love story that we all want to have; unfortunately, not all of us is destined to experience it.
It’s in the story of a woman patiently waiting for the love of her life to come back after serving his country. She prayed for his safety on the battlefield while he hoped that she wouldn’t get tired of the waiting game. At last, when he comes home to her eager arms, they are going to enjoy every moment. Of course, they may face problems along the way, and they don’t know what’s in store for them. But as long as they know (and believe) that what they have is true love, then who are we to judge?
See? There are a lot of stories that can prove the sentiment that true love always prevails. Don’t close your mind because there are real-life tales like that of Romeo and Juliet, Noah and Allie in The Notebook, Sam and Annie in Sleepless in Seattle, Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, or Jack and Rose in Titanic.
Oh, what a beautiful thing—true love, that is. The sound of the word is pure bliss that it can move us to tears and cause our hearts to flutter. True love is magnificent. It’s mysterious and more exquisite than a diamond. But it’s scarce, and perhaps, it may be a once-in-a-lifetime gift from the goddess of love herself.
True love is a risk. True love is a battle. It always prevails. And it’s always worth waiting or fighting for, in this lifetime or the next.
