Every other romance novel puts a great emphasis on a person’s first love, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Falling in love for the first time can be exhilarating; it makes you happy and it gives you a better, more real perspective on relationships – but when it ends, it could also be one of the most painful heartbreaks you’ll ever experience.
If you’re still in a relationship with your first love, then great! You’ve stood the test of time. But if you’ve broken up ages ago, don’t let the idea of your first love trample any chances of finding your best love – they’re two very different things.
Yes, your first love played a big part in molding who you are now as a person, but don’t close your doors to other people you can learn more life lessons from. Remember, everything happens for a reason, and maybe, it just wasn't meant to be.
Meanwhile, your last love is someone you should truly cherish; that one person who has willingly accepted you after everything you’ve gone through; the one who will continue to love you even at rock bottom.
Your last love will be the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with; that special someone you’ll continue learning new things with, and the one who’ll prove why it didn’t work right with the others.
Now, you’re better and wiser so don’t take your last love, or at least, the possibility of it, for granted.
