Often times, when people fall in and out of love, they tend to appreciate the theory that the beginning of every love relationship is beautiful but fail to appreciate that notion in all the things we have and do. Except in few cases, I believe that every beginning has a beautiful twist.
Remember the first time you bought your phone or were given a phone? If it really was the phone you wished for, how was the feeling? Were you able to leave it out of sight for long hours, no, even minutes? What about your car? (For those who own them) What about your house? Rented or built, even petty things like plates and bowls for eating, clothes and shoes? All new things attract and gain attention, unless of course, they have better competitors but you find them with the scrap dealers once they have outlived their trends.
I believe the human is born to be enthused about new beginnings and unless its discipline is highly activated, discard whatever when time grows on them. Even new plants are pampered and protected only to be left to fend for itself when it gains strong roots. That is why visitors are mostly treated with love, served, pampered in the beginning only to be ignored and or abhorred in the end.
If we really understand this theory, I believe we will limit our expectations of each other and save ourselves much hurts. As you peel oranges, suck their juices and throw out their seeds and their backs without caring where they end up, so must you see that some humans will treat you the same way, some humans will be treated that same way by you, and the cycle will continue until time stops.
I believe everything is a teacher in life, everything we do and so we must learn from them to maintain our sanities.
