It matters not that
somebody is your First Love.
Last Love lasts forever.
So much has been said about First Love. Movies and romantic songs, both in Hollywood and my native India over-exaggerate the importance of it.
Love is not first or last. It has to be true. Now, the definition of true is different for everyone.
I said ‘Last love lasts forever’. Think of it. If your ‘first love’ didn’t even survive long and if it gave way to many other men/women, then was it actually love or something else? Infatuation? Attraction?
Agree, circumstances also play their role in making one lose their first love. But if you broke off due to personal differences, then chances are he/she wasn’t your true love. Maybe first love, if you insist on saying that. But not true love.
Possibly you did end up marrying your first love. But do you feel like being totally sincere to this person whom you claim to be you true love? If not, and if you habitually look here and there, if you’re constantly charmed by one and all, then it is not love at all as you are still searching. No unique love story this with the one you married. By chance you got to know that person and started living with him/her.
Another possibility is that your first love was indeed your true love and is also your last. You have always been mutually sincere and are still together. In this case too even though it was your first love, isn’t it also your last love?
That is why…in any case, only last love matters. The one who waits for you, the one who never leaves you, the one who is with you now and will continue till your last, that is your last love.
It’s no rocket science
Which is true love which is not
The one that lasts is love
And yet above all as somebody said “Our first and last love is self-love”
