It’s not Love the 2nd Time Round

Was thinking about my last post during my shower when it dawned upon me that it’s not love the 2nd time round.  ‘Cos if 2 people could not find it within themselves to love the other party deep enough to work things out the first time, assuming their characters did not change when they meet the 2nd time, why should it work?  If they did change by the time they meet again, then whatever love they had before, would fail too… because the person they loved no longer exists.

But human nature will always cause people to cast doubt on the decisions they make.  The grass is always greener on the other side.  And it’s curiousity that will push people to re-explore decisions they made a long time ago… alas, it was also curiousity that killed the cat.

Sadly, humans are ruled by their emotions.  So they are very likely to just follow their feelings blindly instead of listening to reason.  But a very wise friend once told me – you cannot control your feelings, but you can control your actions…. and i believe our lives will be a lot clearer if we could all live by this principle.

    With time comes maturity, with Maturity comes tolerance, and with that comes acceptance. Makes sense?

    How does one separate tolerance from settling?
