Love Always Makes You Think There Is More Time

Does love truly lasts forever?

Love Always Makes You Think There Is More Time
Nay Ro

Many people use love phrases to describe abstract thoughts and feelings, such as love is blind, love is true, or love is love. But there is one love phrase that has not been as provocative but seems to be on the path of truth, love is forever.

Everyone deep down believes that nothing is forever, but yet we want a love that will last.

If you are fortunate to find someone special in your life, you may see your future as being bright and satisfying, and it very well may be. However, deep down you know eventually things will end because no one lives forever.

Not to be somber, but that is the reality of human life.

If you ever lost a loved one, you may understand that pain and sadness clouds the love you felt for that person and the love they felt for you. It is difficult to bounce back and move on when there is this lingering void inside you where that person used to be.

It is common to think positively over the situation and remember the love you shared. But if you had a choice in the situation, you would most likely rather have that person back than the memory of that person.

At the time of the event, everything probably happened so quickly and probably left you in a state of shock. You likely found yourself having thoughts and feeling emotions you never thought you would have, and that is probably because you thought you had more time.

We always think we have more time.

When it comes to the people we love, on some level, we hope that love never leaves. And it is possible it does not.

Some people also use the phrase that love is an energy and cling to that thought. What if love can transfer? What if the love we thought we loss has manifested itself elsewhere?

There are anecdotes of people seeing the essence of their grandparents in their children. There are stories of people meeting new people who remind them of someone they lose. There are times when people believe they are feeling the object of their loss, within themselves.

And that last point is the most interesting. Is it possible that the love you thought you lost, lives inside of you?

No way to know for sure. There are many explanations that scientists, philosophers, and religious leaders may subscribe to. But it would be nice to know that love lives on.

It would be nice to know that once love is created, it cannot be destroyed.

It would be nice to know that each and every one of us are inheriting generations and generations of love.

It would be nice to know that our pain and sadness does not take away the love we felt but reconfigures it.

It would be nice to know that when it is our time, our love continues.

It would be nice to know that love is forever.

Maybe the reason why love always makes us think we have more time is that we do.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
