Falling In Love
“ Imagine a crap of wood and toss it into a frozen lake. Wait a while, slowly, it will be coated in a thin layer of ice until it is transformed and sparkles as brightly as a diamond. This process is called crystallization. In his book On Love, the nineteenth century French author Stendhal wrote that falling in love works much the same way. At first the object of love appears to be absolutely perfect, even extraordinary. For Stendhal, the period of crystallization is fleeting, obsessional, and quixotic - a phase during which the object of affection is completely idealized. “ -How to be a Parisian wherever you are.
To be honest when I have bought this book. I thought it was going to be a joke. But, to my surprise I have actually learned a lot. It made me open my eyes to my feelings that I have never said out loud, one of those feelings is love.
I can’t believe that I’am actually writing a blog about love, since am not the best candidate for it, and its obviously proven in my previous blogs.
When I read that quoted paragraph, the first thought that came to my head is how poetic, beautiful, peaceful love must be. But, in truth it is not. This feeling that is called “ Love” is very idealized, idolized, and overrated. It has always been the talk of everyone, when in the end it has always been “ Love will come in the right time and the right place “.
There’s a song called Can’t Hide for Whethan, Ashe. The lyrics are everything you need to know of what am talking about.
Not everyone you look at is your future love, and just because he/she smiled to you, doesn’t mean that they are your future lovers.
Don’t allow your eyes to indorse your heart with untrue feelings. Not everything you see is true. Because as my teacher said “ One eye sees, the other one feels” - Mahnaz.
You just start living in that imaginary world of yours, but in reality you barely know that person. You don’t even have a single idea probably how she/he even sounds like.
All what you can say is that it was love from first sight, you just fell head over heels for that unknown person. The question is why ?
It’s because you allowed the eye that feels, to feel first. Instead of letting the eye that sees to see first.
When you see things, and people, with one big opened eye. That’s when you use your brain to see things. Because obviously not everything on the outside is as good as on the inside, and vice versa.
Falling in Love is tough, and falling with the wrong person is tougher.
Well this blog will be continued later. That’s it for now.

MY BELIEFS ARE FOR ME, AND NOT FOR YOU.
The title speaks for itself, it shows how much each of us should mind his/her own business. Yet, not really, the title doesn't mean it like that, it means that my beliefs are my own.
Indeed, they are my own, only for me, since I have chosen what to believe in. Exactly why do you think that you should lower your head for someone, just because he/she doesn't believe in what you believe in. Why should you stop your beliefs, dreams, aims, and wishes ? Just because someone said that they aren't great. That doesn't mean they are not.
If you actually ask yourself this question on daily basis, you will find yourself giving a different answer on every single day. Each single day is different than the other, don't ever thunk just because you've fallen into one hell of a routine hole, doesn't mean that you are living fully the same days.

Each one of us have something special. some of us tend to find what they are special in, faster than the others. While some of us tend to never try to know what they are special in.
People, and certain people. Need to learn to have their own special, instead of trying to copy someone's else speciality. Be who you are, and stop trying to be someone else.
Talk to yourself
Learn from yourself
Believe in yourself.
I know someone who not only copies my room (check how creepy this is), but is trying to (impersonate) my whole personality and being. This is just hella creepy. I pray for her/him.
I never knew I was someone (like an actual someone), until I saw some people who are jealous of me, and those who copy (thank you for making me feel like an idol :*). This is actually flattering.
Yeah, that was very egoistic, but it was true.
Anyways, read what I wrote, and never forget to love yourself.
