Life lesson (vi)

Sometimes letting go doesn't  mean loving less. Some people push people away because they don't want to get hurt. Some people push people away because they got hurt. And sometimes some people push people they love most to protect them. 

One thing I learned from the Little Prince story, sometimes we have to let those we love fly free.

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye."

At the end of the story, even though the narrator; a lonely and stranded pilot - has come to know and love the little prince; he knows that to keep him on Earth would be to hurt his friend. Before the little prince leaves, he tells the pilot,

"In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the night sky."

Sometimes we have to let people go, because to keep them would be to trap them. But letting them go can be the truest demonstration of love there is.

And one thing to remember, a true friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable. Cause they doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends never part. 

So, whatever someone you become, wherever you are in the world, and whoever you end up with, I'm sending you love. You're my friend to the end. :)

  1. Melepaskan sesuatu untuk pergi bebas dan pada akhirnya kita juga bebas. Tiada yang mengusarkan hati lagi. Sebab, kita sendiri sedang berbahagia setelah melepaskan. ;)

    1. Dan kadangkala kebersamaan pun belum tentu menjanjikan kebahagiaan. Mungkin Tuhan masih mahu mengajarkan kita mencari kebahagiaan dalam kesendirian. Yang pasti, andai sesuatu itu tertulis buat kita, ia pasti akan kembali. Dan dalam hal2 perasaan khususnya, cinta tidak pernah salah. Yang salah adalah diri kita sendiri, sama ada mencintai orang yang salah, atau mencintai orang yang tepat pada waktu yang salah.
