I thought I knew the deepest meaning of the word “love” but I was wrong. I never knew that setting aside my pride would open up my heart into a new world. I knew that forgiveness and forgetting were parts of moving on but I never knew how it really felt. Maybe somehow but not exactly.
We all tend to raise our pride and build high walls around us just to protect our egos and our hearts. Most of the time, we choose pride over what we truly feel even though it might ruin the relationship we had with other people around us. Most of the time, we don’t really know what we’re doing. We somehow believe that pride would help us heal.
But I realized that the walls I built just to protect my heart from getting hurt didn’t really help me. The walls that I built hurt me more than its purpose. It didn’t save my heart. Pride tore my soul. I didn’t know that letting go of my pride would finally set me free like a prisoner in the middle of the ocean. I thought I already know how to love unconditionally. I slowly let go. I let go of my selfishness. I did all of this because of the overflowing love from my heart. I didn’t know I could let go of the things that I’ve always wanted. A love that I never knew existed within me.
Now, I found myself. I found my happiness.
