Its hard enough...

< for a few of my friends going on through a tough time in their lives... >

It's hard enough to love, but it's even harder to not have loved at all.

It's hard enough to follow every beat of your heart. The human heart can only love so many people at the same time. Who knows how much time, effort and energy a person spends loving? That's the beauty of it all - nobody really knows what the human being is capable of. But it's even harder to love someone you cannot see. Where is the apple of your eye? To whom can you give your all when your all is not there to be seen?

It's hard enough to pay the price to love, but it's even harder to pay the price for love. Who knows how much a person, so much in love, would sacrifice in order to love? Love is pretty much an exercise in sacrifice. To "sacrifice" everything you have: money, time, effort, pride, your own self in the name of love... that's not love. That's not sacrifice. Real love - real sacrifice - happens when you let go. But is love all about sacrifices? How could you sacrifice someone you love so much? Could you even stomach the sacrifices you make, or even think about the sacrifices you have made?

It's hard enough to let go, but it's even harder to move on. Letting go: that's the easy part. After all, every single person in the world is a burden. Come to think about it, whoever said we're indispensable? Everyone is bound to answer to Time one way or another. There's no escaping the reality that life is a cycle of vicious cycles. But how do you "move on" now that your life, all of a sudden, got a bit "lighter?" How do you move on with your life when your immediate present is a wreck? How do you move on, now that you're drained?

It's hard enough to love... but really, it's even harder to not have loved at all.- May
