A second love gives you reason to continue to believe in love, but more importantly, it gives you perspective.

Love is not only about having someone or about being in a relationship. Love is an ability that you have and no person or heartbreak — no coming or going of a significant other — can extinguish that ability.

You fell in and out of love once and survived, then, you found the ability to fall in love again. So, if and when that second love passes, you’ll know that heartbreak does not destroy; you keep going.

I was broken for the longest time, but then I met you. You’ve shown me that I was too good for the first guy who broke my heart. You’ve made me believe that I am capable of falling in love again. All I can say is that I am happy that you walked into my life. I waited and thank goodness I did, because you’re the good thing that I was always told to wait for. I don’t know where this road will take us, but now I know why things turned out the way they did. Now I know why my first love and I didn’t work out—It’s because it was time for us to cross paths. And the thing is, I think I’m beginning to fall.
