Lesson Learnt

Romantic love is a beautiful thing. However, having gone through this recent experience, I realize how quickly I let my guard down. Moreover, if I were honest with myself, I would admit that I was in love with the idea of being in love, which caused me to overlook certain things. I guess what I am saying is that there were warning signs in the beginning that the relationship might not possible work. I chose to ignore them. I was and in many ways still am a hopeless romantic. Moving forward, I need to be more reserved and less reckless with my feelings. As such, I am going to try my hardest not to be so easily charmed and remember that words without actions are just empty promises, which ultimately leads to a stay in heartbreak hotel. This is some place I never want to be again.

  1. I always try telling myself the same thing. It’s so easy to get caught up in a whirl when things are new and fresh and exciting. You’re willing to ignore or justify all kinds of things you normally wouldn’t put up with simply because that feeling is so good.
    You seem like a very sweet and genuine person, Ursula. You don’t need to settle or compromise to find happiness.

  2. we all tend to over look the red flags. I know I have at times and had ended up with some real frogs that no amount of kissing could turn into a prince.
