In life, we tend to be surprised. Unexpected people come, unexpected moments begin, unexpected changes take place. Every beginning taught me that endings are always possible. I was gullible and innocent before. I just went along with everyone who chose to enter my life. I left my heart unguarded. I was always hopeful. I was always giving my all. I was so sincere that it made me forget my own identity. I forgot who I should be. I forgot the real me. I was insane for many times, that it made me numb whenever I meet someone who shows true affection. I allowed myself to sink deeper in all of my doubts and fears. All of my experiences about love were more than just lessons; they made me who I am today.
I have always been afraid of uncertainties. In life, I always wanted to be sure. But in the long run, all I could say is failures are inevitable. I became used to it, that I somehow see that it always brings out the best in me. Whenever I face difficult situations, I sometimes make the wrong decisions. But those decisions shaped me to be a better version of myself. It made me feel that it is normal to go through hard times. It made me realize that pain and uncertainty will always happen, coincidentally or not. That is why I have learned how to deal with it, and it makes me stronger each day.
There is beauty in every ending. When a door closes, a new one opens. Hope will always be your friend. Trust will always make a difference. It may seem hard to open up again, but all you have to do is believe. Believe that you are worth it. Believe that every doubt that you had would soon lead to clarity. Believe that someone will appreciate and love you for who you truly are.
