No. This is not about the song of Snow Patrol. These are my thoughts about stopping yourself to chase people in your life.
At some point in our life, we fell (hard) in love to a person. Hoping that this love will lasts despite of differences and conflicts. Believing that love will be enough to accept each individualistic approach to your relationship. You want them so much.. very much. You kept on chasing them. You want them so badly. You are capable of loving someone. You started to build up your dreams and included them to your goals.. life plans. Things are almost planned out. But as you progress in your life, these individualistic approach and differences seems to swallow your relationship bit by bit until there was nothing left.. until there was nothing to hold on to.
But still, you try work it out because you love them. You wait for them. You begged. Hoping that somehow love, affection, and time will be given freely.. voluntarily. Then time will come for an eye opener. You will grew tired of chasing, for begging, and for waiting. You will realized that you cannot hold on to reverie that much longer. Those stress and thoughts during sleepless nights, mornings, and tulala moments will come down on you, and one day… you just stop. You stop thinking about them, and started to think about yourself. The tables are turning.
And when you looked into those eyes, the eyes that was everything to you back then, there was nothing but good memories of love and friendship you have built with them. You are not sad.. you don’t longed for that love anymore. You just stare into those eyes peacefully with good riddance.
