I ´d rather be a dreamer, naïve and scared than losing the magic in life.
Sometimes you fall in love head over heels. And from the first minute you feel this strong connection that blows you away. But at the same time you can feel that this person could hurt you like no one else before and that it will be a roller coaster ahead of you. Now the question is what do you do – take the risk and throw yourself into it anyway and enjoy every great minute while it lasts, after all we just live once and we want to live life to its fullest, right? But I also wonder, are those good times worth all the suffering you might have at the end? Will any of the good things last or will the end tear you down and follow you for the rest of your best years? Or is it maybe better to choose something that is less of a turmoil for your love life and more stable but therefore with less intensity? Is it sometimes better to take this huge crush you have on somebody only as the material for your daydreams? Keeping that still perfect person alive only in your mind and make it into a love that will last forever. Even if it´s not real. Love is an illusion anyway. And things sometimes get so complicated when it starts to get serious and real. And even if at the beginning they aren´t, sooner or later they will. Like Hermann Hesse already said: “In every beginning there is magic.” Maybe we are obsessed to keep magic forever. To be happily ever after. With the one that we feel head over heels right away. And our belief and hope for it is what makes us so hurt at the end if it doesn´t work out. And disappointed if we never even encounter it. But despite all the fear of getting hurt at the end, nevertheless this thought of finding this one person that we connect so strongly with and where this love never stops, even with all the ups and downs, is still one of the most magic things to believe in. And I ´d rather be a dreamer, naïve and scared than losing this magic in life.
