You Will Fall In Love When You Least Expect It

It happens when you least expect it. If I had known it sooner, I could have prepared myself. I could have become a better person each day, but I didn’t. I hated love. I despised affection. Maybe because I’ve been hurt a lot of times. Maybe because I’ve begged for people to stay, but they always left.

It will happen when you least expect it. It will happen when you’ve lost all hope that it will happen. It will happen because it’s meant to be. This person will love you how you should have loved yourself. This person will treat you like you should have treated yourself. This person will protect you like you should have protected yourself from countless heartbreaks.

It will happen, but you won’t be prepared for it. Every single day, it will feel like a dream. Every single day, it will feel surreal. Every single day, your doubt will grow. Every single day, you’ll become more insecure. Every single day, you’ll find it hard to trust the person you’ve been waiting for. It will happen, but it won’t be easy, because all your life, you’ve been living a lie.

It will happen, but it won’t happen like you wanted it to. Love is not a fairy tale. It’s not all roses. You will stumble into thorns. Your permanent differences will never change. At most, you’ll only meet halfway. There will be times when you are too tired. Too hurt. Too unsure. There will be times when you have to make a big decision — to leave or to stay. Most of the time, you’ll choose the latter.

It will happen when you least expect it, but you’ll choose to make it work. No matter how painful the experience, you’ll stay — not because you should, but because you want to. Even if it means saying sorry during an argument that’s not your fault. Even if it means seeing that person’s dark side and accepting it — not because you should, but because you love that person.

It will happen when you least expect it, and you will wish it could go on forever, but you know that sooner or later, those magical moments will end. You already seeing it coming. You want to stop time, but you can’t. You want to go back to when everything was still okay, but you can’t. You want to let go, because it’s already too painful, but you can’t.

It will happen when you least expect it. Some things just don’t last. No matter how much you try to make it work, it’ll never be enough. No matter how many reasons there are to stay together, the pain just won’t disappear, and no matter how sure you might be, you’ll never be prepared for what’s next.

It will happen when you least expect it. You will try moving on. Try to live on. Try to go on. Until it doesn’t hurt anymore. The relationship you thought would last forever is now gone. The person you once loved is now in love with someone else. You can never be prepared for the pain that’s about come. The memories that you will remember and the times that you once shared.

It will happen when you least expect it. Everything will become a memory. It won’t hurt you anymore, and it won’t affect you any longer. You can say you’ve moved on.

It will happen when you least expect it. You will fall in love, get hurt, move on until the pain is gone and then… You will fall in love again. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
