> You might be wondering what an odd title for an article. I just thought of this idea while pacing in the kitchen for some midnight fill. Have you ever wondered why in search for the “One” as some may call it, we fall, we get disappointed, we cry in the process? But lets not forget we also feel joy and sweet fleeting feelings. Most of us want to get off the miserable feeling we feel after a battle lost. We tend to dwell in the past, as we realize that the past couldn’t be brought back. We know that forward is the only direction we must go, but we tend to hold on to it even if it hurts us and eventually destroys us.
Love doesn’t grow on trees, but rather it grows like trees. Picture a small tree bearing a rather huge fruit. Wondrous isn’t it? That in mind, do you think that tree would have the strength to support the tree before it is ready to ripe? I think not. Now Imagine A big tree bearing the same size of fruit of the small tree. Now, what do you think would be the result in this picture? Can you imagine it? The tree will bear this fruit until it is ready or sometimes the fruit just stays there. Trees experience multiple weather conditions or in other cases man-made disasters. The tree is like our parents and we are the fruits. When our parents raise us with not enough love, we tend to stray from them at an early age and blame them for not raising us well, the result?We come to be fruits that are bitter and of low quality. On the contrary if our parents give us love that we cannot even repay throughout our lifetime. We tend to grow in that love and and ripe as the sweetest fruits that the world had ever beheld. When its time to for us to be on our way, we will fall into the ground and face the harsh environment that surround us. This is essential for all of us. Time comes that we will be on out own. We “fell”, but this is not bad. It is an experience. An experience will make us stronger than what we are yesterday. With the natural training of the harsh surroundings we are slowly turning into something that we may not even thought about…A Tree… A tree doesn’t really need someone to make it grow. It all depends on YOU. If you want to grow and live a hundred years you can! We cannot love another if we do not love ourselves. Since we are human beings and we don’t have to capability to grow off-springs by ourselves, we need someone. But its shouldn’t be just anyone. We would want to have someone who has the same level or on our league. It is because if we choose someone who is too high we end up leeching on them, on the other hand when we choose someone who is to low they end up leeching on you. But if we were in the same league we tend to teach each other of what values we have to share and perspectives that they never thought of seeing. Everything takes time to develop.(yes even our cup noodles needs 3 minutes to cook). Love takes time and patience. We should never rush it for it will just ruin the fruit(Yesterday I saw a forced-ripped mango!!)
Love doesn’t grow on trees , but rather grow like trees. It takes time, patience, determination and the grace of God most of all. We experience all this hardships and joys for a reason. (some call it battle scars) . It is preparing us for something. So do not rush. Be on your own for now…and eventually That someone will come to you in unexpected moments. Stop and enjoy every moment of whatever you are experiencing right now..For it will be for something just for you in the end.
