Ryan Cabrera - True (Video)

“There are thousands of paths. They all lead nowhere.
You must ask yourself one question: ‘Does this path have a heart?’
If it does, the path is good. If it doesn’t, it is of no use.”
Don Juan

This has been the hardest, and yet the best, lesson for me to learn. In the past, I've opened up my heart, but it's always been hesitantly, with great care, and always holding just a little bit more in than I should. I fall in love too soon and too hard.

The thing I've found with real love is that you won't mind changing nearly as much as you might have thought when it comes to doing it for someone you care about (and someone who is also making an effort to change for you too). Love, real love, really is about compromising and meeting the other person half-way and I've learned that, much to my surprise, it's a lot easier to change when you want to do it for the sake of someone who means the world to you. Though what I expected and my happiness didn't stay longer, I am so grateful that Allah has given me another strength to keep moving and stay strong.

Love is a hard work. It starts off easy and carefree until reality sets in and then there you find that there are just two people who are alike in some ways and different in others and who have to find ways to interact with and love one another in spite of their differences. Love is work. But, I've learned, the work you have to do for the one you love shouldn't be a complete drain on you, making you question or wonder if all of the stress and strain is worth it.

I used to think that love was about someone else, about giving up a part of who you were so that you could then become part of a unit. I thought love was about going from "me" to "we." But now I know that isn't what love's about at all. Break up is suck big time but this time round, it is really a great lesson for me to learn. So many things to share now but one thing i always keep in my mind, I will always have Allah. He will never turn me away.
