Rolyn Mae Awa

infatuationWhen to people really care for each other, they always find a way to make it work. No matter how hard it is – Anonymous

Your heart's pounding, you're flush with excitement and giddy with anticipation. You can't focus on your work. You've lost your appetite for food because you're reminiscing about how delicious it feels to be in their arms. Your waiting for them to reply, hoping to do so. Checking your phone like every minute. Feeling disappointed if they don’t. First thing in the morning, Checking your phone if they text  or not, “Good Morning Bae J Have you Eat Breakfast ?” Screaming Like there is no tomorrow. Rolling Like a rolling pin Just to express your Excitement. They forget to call and you're anxious. They are in a bad mood and you obsess over whether it's your fault. They express their doubts about the relationship and you're in agony for days. Giving all what you got. Do crazy thing just prove you love. The Question “What if isn’t love? “

Now a day’s failed relationship is ever being everywhere Because they don’t really understand what they feel. What is really I feel   is this love or infatuation?

“Daghan ko ug crush, Mga gwapa man gud pero katung nailhan nako sila bati man diay sila ug batasan mao tu na discourage ko sa ila, wala man gihapoy forever”—Mr. Right

Infatuation is an intense but short-lived passion or Admiration for someone or something. When you dream of everything that could be but you wake up disappointed, because it won’t be real.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous.It does not brag, does not get puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness,but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things,believes all things,hopes all things,endures all things. Love never fails. But if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues,they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with. -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is a strongattractionto some One or Something. love grows out of the healing of our childhood wounds through the ups and downs of a relationship.

In short Infatuation is All About You, You, you when you're obsessing on what you're feeling, needing and wanting from the relationship, you're experiencing an immature, attachment-focused infatuation, not real love. Infatuation Has Expectation When things go awry, you shut down, cling or pull away, and fear that the relationship is over. But REAL Love is all About US. Real love is not just about what you want or need, but rather what's best for the relationship. REAL Love Begins from Within Real love complements each partner's strengths, accepts the weaknesses, and remains strong, reliable and steady in the face of challenges. REAL Love is a Verb It's loving your partner, not pulling away. It's about taking responsibility for your actions. REAL Love is About Being Friends as Well as Lovers It's about wanting the best for the other -- even when your needs conflict. Real love is about growing closer and growing up. - Sheri Meyers
