platonic love : why high school lovers don't make it to the end?
falling in love during high school is not uncommon. we can simply find these school kids walk hand in hand with their gf/bf after school. they really walk their heads up - proud to have someone they can call girlfriend or boyfriend, at such a young age. yeah, kids nowadays.
high school is full of dramas don't u think so? that's because most of us are going through our rebellious phase at this age. having a steady boyfriend/girlfriend at this age can really add up more spices to ur dramas. whether it is good or bad, it really depends on u.
most of the time after finishing high school, u'll find the same person walking hand in hand with a totally different partner. yes, the sweetest couple in school finally broke up. but why?
they used to understand each other more than their sibblings do. they used to do fun stuffs together. they used to be with each other through high and low. they used to do everything together. and there wasn't a single sign showing that they are not meant for each other. everything was perfect, back then. and yet, they broke up, after so many years.
this is so common. i've seen a lot of my friends, who have been dating for years and years (some of em even date up till 7 years) and still, they don't make it to the end. they say, make up don't break up, but some relationship just won't work after some time, and u just can't trace the mistake.
is it not love that they were sharing all this while? well yeah, it was love, purely love. just my humble point of view, i think high school lovers are meant to learn from each other, not just about love, but about everything, about friendship, responsibilities and everything about life so that u are more prepared to face the world in the future.
the laughter u shared and the tears u shed, those two are the platform that makes a stronger you. some people might say, throw away all the memories u have with ur high school lover and start over a new life. to me, u can still start fresh without throwing away anything. keep those memories somewhere, because u might want to thank him/her for making u so much stronger today, for making u a better person tomorrow, and yes, for that precious time spent together.
u might hate him/her now, but hatred will bring u nowhere. there are reasons why they don't make it to ur future. there are reasons why they are history. and most importantly, there are reasons why u met him/her some time ago. there are always reasons. so don't cry because it's over, but smile because it happened.
sometimes, it takes u numbers before u can meet THE ONE. well, don't take the previous relationship as ur love or first love or whatever, instead, take it as a lesson. now it sounds better right? and make sure u learn ur lesson :) life is the real teacher anyway.
p/s : some people are not meant to be ur lovers, but they are meant to teach u what life is worth. be thankful to those people.
when u say life is a bitch, that means, life has taught u so many things. and when u meet a bitch, don't hate her, get to know her, a bitch too can teach u something :)
