When did you know? 

‘….So, when did you know?’

When do you know that this is going to last forever? When did you know that he’s the one and only for you? When did you know that you wanted to spend the rest of your life with this person? 
When was the time? Time, when you wanted to hold him in your arms? Time, when you wanted his fingers to fill in the space between yours? Time, when all you wanted was him to assure and re-assure you that he’s here to stay? 

Was it when he held you closer to his chest? Or was it in the way he touched your skin? Or the way he looked at you? The way he smiled and his eyes shone whenever you spoke? Was it when he said, ‘I love you’? When he promised you a million promises? 

Was it when he caressed the back of your hand with his thumb? Or when he took you out to one of those out-of-the-world dates? Or when he looked back while leaving and prompted, ‘I love you‘? When he gave you, your favorite chocolates, or favorite flowers? Or when he said he won’t ever let you down? 

Just when did you know that you’re in love? 


Hold my heart. 

It’s amazing. 

Just how someone whom you barely knew some years ago, has so much hold on your heart now. 

Well, not just the heart but everything attached to you. 

Sometimes I wonder how just a small text or a phone call can change your day. How your happiness is directly linked to that person’s happiness. How your mood depends on his. 

How an ignorant or rude text can break you into a million pieces. And then again how a simple sorry and I love you and make you feel whole again.

Amazing, isn’t? How someone can have such a strong hold on our hearts? 

Maybe. Just maybe that’s called Love.


Well, we all believe our first one to be our last and the last one to be our first, don’t we?

But, my question is,will that heartbreak now be the cause of regret for the rest of your life? Or, will you be able to rise up from the experience richer and more evolved? 

Things are difficult for you now, I know. I know you pinch the bridge of your nose everytime a memory comes up. I know your throat burns everytime you speak or think of her. But baby, things will change. And, they will change for good. Trust me.

There will come a time when you’ll no more think of what happened in your past rather how it taught you a lesson and changes you into a better version of yourself. You’ll no longer have anxiety jitters that you’ve now. 

Listen, there’ll also come a time when you no more love her. When her name doesn’t make you heart beat fast. I won’t tell you’ve ‘moved on’ completely, but, ask yourself, haven’t you taken your first step towards moving on? 

Go ahead, talk to people, visit places, drink lots of coffee, read books, click photos, connect with old friends. You’ll find joy in it. In small things. These will make you forget your pain, not completely, but, for a short period of time? Continue your hobbies, make new interests, know new things, do what you love. Love yourself. 

This is the first and foremost thing you’ll have to do. Don’t be hard on yourself, be soft. Try to forgive yourself. Once, twice, seven times, seventy-seven times, seven hundred seventy-seven times, because then, you’ll bloom. You’ll bloom into a flower. And, who knows, you might attract another flower? 

Listen love, don’t be afraid to fall in love, again. It will take a lot of time. Months, years maybe. But, when you see a girl in a bookstore, shop or park and you get those butterflies in your stomach, don’t be afraid to take a chance. Take one step at a time. When confident enough, take two. Because, why not? 

You don’t stop learning to ride cycle, because you had an accident once, right? Then why give up on love because of a heartbreak? Have courage to let someone in. 

Remember that quote that if you’d love the wrong person so much then why not the right one? 

It’ll be tough to put away all these behind when you finally take a step. I understand. But, forgive what you can, stow what you can’t, use the happy memories as a source of strength. Live life step by step. And fall in love, okay? 

All the best. ☺
