Okay so my first blog entry will be on teenage relationships... ah. Well this should be interesting. This topic crossed into my mind yesterday and the day before. Let's commence with my perspective, shall we? To put it simply, I don't really believe in teenage love. Do you know how much it annoys me seeing crazy girls thinking and saying they're all in love with the person when they're only like a few days or weeks into the relationship? Then when they break up, there's an option of moping around for a few days or the girl just likes another guy. Society these days has made me come to think that nobody really knows what love is. They take that word for granted. Especially teenagers. Most say "We'll be together forever." hah. Nothing lasts forever... I mean, their feelings are soon going to change someday. The teenagers don't know what they want yet... They're just developing and maturing. But dwelling on the whole fairytale perspective of the "perfect" guy or girl will most likely get them nowhere, because everyone has their flaws. Being a teenager, I witness this teenage love nonsense everyday. I hear the L-word being thrown around like it's just another word, though it is just a word. People would say they love each other, but do they really know what they're saying? I'm sure there's no deeper meaning to the phrase "I love you" anymore since it's being said somewhere every other second... But to me, it means something... unless it's said by someone that I know that just throws the phrase around. I will rarely say "I love you" unless I truly mean it... Anyways, back to the teenage relationships topic, heh. So the word love. People can say it... they can say the three words "I love you" but I rarely see them show it. Love in a relationship is not about the holding hands, the kissing, the hugging, the hanging out. There's more to it than that. It's the connection between two hearts, the two minds. I know I just said it simply, but I don't know how to go more indepth in describing the connection. The connection doesn't require you guys liking the same things. Love can develop between the two most unlikely people. And it's because of the connection they have with each other. They "fill" each other's lives... Bleh, I think I'm sounding corny and whatnot. But in certain ways, it's true. In my opinion, teenage relationships are just phases in which everyone needs to go through to help them find their "one"... this person doesn't have to be perfect. Nobody's perfect, we all know that. Even if they appear perfect, there's some flaw they're hiding or some flaw you're not seeing. Because teenage relationships are just the budding stage of "love," I think they shouldn't be taken so importantly. I don't mean to take them for granted. Just don't dedicate your "life" to your relationship. If you guys break up, don't be all depressed and whatnot. Don't dwell on it, if you do, you won't grow and progress to actually achieve the love you're looking for. If it didn't last, then that just means that it didn't work out... Don't think that you're not worth anything and whatnot, because you are... to somebody. You just haven't found that person yet. I, for one, have been in the whole depressed, I'm-not-worth-anything stage before, but now I'm not. I refuse to be that way because I know that teenage relationships should not dominate my life. It's not my main goal in life. If someone happens to like me and I like them in that manner, then hooray for us. hah. I take relationships seriously... I don't play people. If I like you and I am willing to be your girlfriend or whatever, I must really like you. hehe. Wow. This entry doesn't seem as philosophical and whatnot as it did in my head... =\ Of course, all of this is in my opinion... I'm not saying for everyone to agree with me. I am just expressing my ideas, is all. =] You can agree or disagree, I'm open-minded. Just don't bash me if you think everything's wrong. Like I said before, I'm not imposing my views on anyone.
