The disappearing act that has been pulled off by me in the past few days has completely to do with my sister’s engagement which is on the 25th! 🙂 Because of which I will be invisible till the 27th 😦
Somehow the concept of marriage scares me, after all how well do you know the person you are in love with? What if it wasn’t love in the first place? What if after you get married, you meet the love of your life?
Which is why I have been asking my sister, time and again if she is sure. More importantly, how do you know that he is the one?
I just had this conversation with her for the hundredth time and she had just one answer – ‘No one ever knows.’ She explained me the reason for the same too.
You don’t love a person looking at how much he earns, because in that case you love his money and not him, the same holds good with one’s physical appearance, and once he loses that particular trait, the person loses his value.
But when you love someone for who they are, no conditions attached and they love you just the same, you know that as time passes, people change and strangely it won’t affect you because it still remains the same person you loved despite the changes.
And no one knows what the future holds, it may so happens that the person you married turned out to be all that you feared, life doesn’t end there. You try to make things work out and if still the situation turns out to be hopeless then you just walk away. But what if it does work out? No one guarantees you happiness for an entire lifetime, apart from their unrelenting support through the highs and lows of life.
Does that mean that you wait for the right person to come along? Maybe you take the chances with the one who feels the right-est at that point of time in life. No doubt that there are and will be better men than the one you get married to, be it education or career or behavior wise but you decide who is the one for you. The grass is always greener on the other side is the common feeling but then why should it stop you from taking chances?
Now that I know her answer, it’s comforting to know that though she has listened to her heart, she is taking her brains along with her too! 😀
