What is it about love stories that attract us so much? They make you think about the past, the present, and the future. They make you think about what could’ve been, and what can still happen. You see yourself reflected in the characters, and it’s so much easier when it’s just a TV series or a book. You can just click the power button and it’s all over.
Love stories always have a happy ending. Love stories give us hope, that maybe one day we can find happiness. But there is no one writing your history behind your back. It’s not like you’re just sitting on your sofa, watching that fake reality, that perfect universe designed to make you feel better.
You have to write your own history. And that’s something you don’t learn just by watching TV. You have to take the wheel yourself, grab the opportunities that show up and don’t let them go. There is no pause button, there is no pilot or season finale. There is just right now, and how you feel about it. So don’t waste too much time or thought in these love stories, and go build your own. Good luck, and I’ll try to do the same.
