Beauty of love

How do you know when you’re in love?

Maybe you know it when you close your eyes and you smile because you see his face.. his adorable face.. his soft lips.. his lovely eyes.. you also feel his kind, beautiful heart and feel extremely grateful for every single moment you’ve shared together

Maybe you know it when your heart aches when you see him cry, when you want to do everything you can to make his pain go away but you cannot do anything right now.. so you offer him hope.. and you pray for him with all your heart.. and sometimes just sit with him and share the pain

Maybe you know it when he cares for you genuinely and all you can do is feel grateful for his presence, for his love

Maybe you know it when after a longgg tiresome day, all you want to do is hear his voice and talk to him, be in his arms and then somehow everything seems to be okay..

Maybe you know it when he supports you and encourages you in such a way that you feel more of yourself when you are with him.. there comes this time when you actually start loving yourself more because you are in love with him.. you slowly start becoming a better person and growing in love

Maybe you know it when you realise his happiness matters the most.. when you both start making small sacrifices to see each other happy.. like his happiness is related to yours.. when seeing him happy makes you forget everything.. it’s almost as if world is moving in slow motion and you feel and enjoy the moment you both are together and happy.. and you just want to pause this time.. forever..

A book that taught me what is love

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.

– The Notebook

Love..

Whenever i hear this word, the first name that comes to my mind is Noah-Allie.

I will be honest with you guys.. i didn’t really know what love truly is or how it really feels like to be in love until i read The Notebook.

I didn’t plan on falling in love with you and i doubt if you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us.

– The Notebook

From start till end.. it holds your attention and you can’t help but feel a small part of love that Noah and Allie feel for each other.

The story starts with an old man in a hospital who shares thoughts about his life and his beloved. It all starts with a notebook.. a notebook which has captured their memories, their pure, eternal love.

You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper and i dont know how i could have lived without you for as long as i have. I love you Allie, more than you can ever imagine. I always have and i always will.

– The Notebook

Reading that book really made me feel that perhaps there’s nothing better in this world than loving someone with all your heart and soul. There’s nothing as beautiful and as satisfying as loving someone and be loved in return. It taught me what it means to love someone unconditionally with all your heart.

There are so many books written about love, there are also some books that maybe misguide you or plant a wrong idea of love in your mind. For me, reading this book felt like understanding true love.

So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard! We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but i want to do that because i want you. I want all of you. Forever. You and me… Everyday

– The Notebook

I have cried many times while reading the book.. the letters they wrote for each other, the love they have for each other, the way they struggle to be together, all that makes my heart melt.

When you read the book, it just feels right. The way Nicholas Sparks has written it is outstanding!

While reading that i could actually connect to the characters and understand their emotions. That’s the thing about Nicholas Sparks’s books – he tells you everything about the character, you know why he is the way he is and you could really feel him.

You are every reason, every hope and every dream I’ve ever had and no matter what happens to us in future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.

– The Notebook

For me, Notebook is the best book on love and romance I’ve read till date. And it will always be special 💖

I haven’t really written a book review before and I don’t know how to articulate a book perfectly but i had to write about this one, because Notebook is ♥️.

I hope you read it at least once in your lifetime and more than that, I hope all of us get to experience love so pure and true.


Have you read The Notebook? Or any other book of Nicholas Sparks?

What’s your favourite quote from the book?

I’d ♥️ to know! 🙂

when i met you for the first time

i had no idea you’d become my world someday

but i do remember wondering.. how beautiful it would be to be loved by someone like you…💞

blessed to have him

Does this ever happen to you?

You love someone so much, beyond words could ever express. You don’t know how this happened, it was like a beautiful song playing in your heart and the next thing you know is that you cannot live without this person.

They feel like sunshine in human form, like sunset, like the first sip of a cold drink on a hot summer afternoon, like rain, like your favourite song playing just for you

You look at them and remember all the kind words they’ve said, all the fun times you had, all the emotional moments you’ve shared.

You know you wouldn’t have made it this far without them, your heart blooms when you talk to them, you want to take care of them and make them happy, you want to live the rest of your life with them

And then suddenly

You remember reading that break up post on Instagram, hearing your friend say everything changes after first year of relationship, you remember all your past heartbreaks

And then you’re scared

Coz you know many people haven’t made it through

Then you doubt yourself and think maybe this is not real… Maybe you are imagining things

Then you back off

Try to tell yourself it won’t work out and look the reasons to justify your answer

Then suddenly

They come in front of you, everything stops and you realise how badly you want to be with them… How badly you just want to pause this time forever……

Lies

“I would like you to be mine forever”
“I need you for the rest of my life”
“I love you”
“I can do anything for you”
“I won’t leave you”
Words said by you….
Playing in my head as I try to sleep

I wonder how much
of it
did you actually mean

I didn’t expect you
To bring moons and stars
For me

All I ever wanted
was honesty

It happens sometimes
When you’re happy
You lie
When you’re sad
You say what you don’t mean

But the problem
Occurs
When it becomes a habit
So much so
That now
It’s hard for me
To distinguish
Your lies
from the truth

To all the people who give advice without listening

It’s not just about the advice. It’s okay, I understand you might feel the pressure to come up with a creative solution or magically make the problem disappear.

But it doesn’t work.

When I come to you with my problem.. I want you take the time to hear me out. I want you to understand me and listen to me. Because it wasn’t easy for me to talk about this. If I’m gathering up the courage to speak about something that’s bothering me I don’t want you to treat it like unimportant trivial thing and show me how wrong I’m doing.

Trust me I’ve had enough of that.

When someone gathers the courage to speak up, all you need to do is listen.. and understand.

Most of the times it’s enough.

And let’s be real, there isn’t advice for everything on this planet.

When someone is depressed you can’t tell that person it’s all your fault or how can you “get over it”. Sometimes the best they can do is to go through the pain.. go through the pain thinking it’s a part of life and they have their loved ones besides them.. even that support of having someone by your side means so much!

Let me tell you what happens when you give advice without listening.. you lack empathy. You cannot think from the other person’s perspective and cannot understand what he/she is going through. When you can’t understand how they think and feel, you’re more likely to complicate the situation coming up with some silly conclusion. It’s like you are giving the exam and don’t know which paper you are solving.. you’re bound to fail.

Think about a time when you were feeling sad and hurt. What did you need most at that time? Advice? Maybe if you’re stressed about a very important problem. Maybe if your only goal is solving the problem.

But most of the times you need someone to listen to you… Simply listen.. and understand. Someone who would genuinely care. Someone who would be kind to you when you forget to be kind to yourself.

Be that to someone when they need you.

The One

I miss you. I haven’t met you yet but I miss you. Sometimes I wonder where can I find you – online? In the local cafe? In shopping mall? Or on a random street? Or through a friend? Possibilities are endless…

I don’t want you to complete me or to fill in my loneliness void. No, I don’t even want you to make me happy…. I have realised I can do all these things by myself. And believe me I am doing all this as good as I can… But sometimes…. I need you. Is it wrong to admit that I need love?

I see those happy couples on insta and when I read their captions I can literally feel their love for each other. That makes me wonder when will I get to love someone like this… When will someone love me like this… Is it wrong to admit that I need love?

Yesterday I was listening to a romantic song. The lyrics felt like you are speaking to me and I’m calling out to you… Sometimes it feels like you are here somewhere.. talking to me through songs and stories.. but why can’t I see you yet?

Love is something that can’t be rushed, they say. But I am done waiting. And you know I’m impatient as hell..

I don’t think you’ll be perfect in every way… But you’ll be right for me and that’s what matters… I am not the type of girl who believes in fairy tales and happy endings… But I know I can have someone whom I can live happily with. Someone who can support my growth and nourish me with love.

Will you meet me soon?


Don’t we all feel like this at times?

A narcissist

“I’m sorry Kunal… This won’t happen again”

“Look I don’t want to get mad at you… Whyyyy do you always make me so angry?”

“I’m sorry..” sobbing

“Why did you even make such a big issue? I just kissed her… I am not dating her… I kissed her because I you fought with me the night before.. That’s not my fault”

“But this hurts me”

“That’s your problem. You can’t deal effectively with situations. I am like this. Accept me or leave.”

“Kunal I –”

“You know what’s your problem? You’re too sensitive! Stop being such a dumbass.. and I didn’t mean it okay? It just happened”

“So you want to say it’s my fault?”

“Let’s just admit we were both wrong… Don’t you love me anymore? Why are making such a fuss of everything?”

“You made a fuss of our relationship when you kissed her… You know how much I hate her and -”

“You know what? I’m glad I kissed her… You deserve it”


Every conversation with a narcissist ever.

If this reminds you of someone then beware! You might be dealing with a narcissist.

If not, lucky you! You haven’t dealt with a narcissist yet..

You can’t argue with them. They apply their own silly stupid logic and try to turn things in their favour.. you feel like you are wrong, but honey trust me you aren’t.

Distance yourself from them and think about the situation, you’ll get some clarity.

Can you imagine being with someone like this?

What these words really mean

Ex

Someone you can’t really get over.. someone your bff hates more than you..

Bff

Someone who knows all the troubles you’ve put yourself through.. Someone who’s always ready for a chaai and late night talks.. Someone who covers you from your parents

Boyfriend

Someone who’s always supposed to pamper you..

Love

Something that makes you do crazy stuff… Something that changes you from within..

Treat

A positive reinforcement for helping a friend or to make up for the mistakes you’ve done

Flirt

The act of saying what’s not there and creating the illusion that you’re in relationship.. Sounds playful.. but many a times ends up in a fight

Romantic

DDLJ

Crush

Someone who literally takes your breath away.. someone who magically makes you look stupid even when you’re looking your best

Group plans

Lol. Never work

Night out

Feeling free to do anything… But you actually end up talking and sleeping

(P.S – at times spiced up with fun games that help you forget PUBG and last all night long)

Cafes

Place where plans are made and arguments are solved and gossips are done and happiness is shared

Books

An opportunity to do what you always wanted to.. An escape from reality you long for.

Happiness

Cozy seat beside window as it rains.. holding a cup of coffee and a fiction novel…

Walking hand in hand with your bff at night for an hour or two and talk about every damn thing on the planet..

Having someone to talk to.. just having someone to talk to….


What do you think guys? Don’t these words really mean something think this?😜
