“They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.”
~ William Shakespeare
When you like or love someone the greatest fear in your heart is ‘what? If you lose that person’ and you keep loving them for your entire life without telling them the feeling you are going through. You become the member of Frustrated One Sided Lovers Association (FOSLA). You turn out to be more perplexed when you realise that person is also in love with you and is in perturbation. But that’s not the end. You lose plenty of time to gain this ‘knowledge’; and by the time you comprehend, chances are, you could become ‘mama’ (maternal uncle) of your beloved’s child.
Hence, in all probability if you love someone, express it; tell them at their face about your emotional feeling towards them. No need to take a proxy, ancient and lengthy route like sending perfumed letters, an anonymous bouquet of flowers, decorating their porch with heart shaped balloon with I LOVE YOU imprinted over them or playing a lovely tune on the harmonica. Just tell the golden words. At most your plea will be rejected, but you won’t have a lifelong regret that you didn’t do what you wanted. And no one gets what they wanted unless they are convinced themselves to convey their sentiments in an emphatic way. Love is a resounding feeling which transmits the signals to others’ heart. Any form of a timid act would be an insult of the sacred endearment. Moreover, rejections always have a rationale; and this doesn’t come all of a sudden, it has some background attached to it. So, even if you get rejected, you have all the right to explore the reason in order to get the desired result.
Feeling love for someone is not a crime. One should marry the person they love, and love the person they are married to. The Valentine should be ‘one’ in one’s life; single person. The reason: love is momentary while marriage is a lifetime decision. Always marry the person you can talk to; to whom you can speak your heart out. She/he should be a friend; a partner in its entire sense. You have to live a life not just to spend it!
