Something to think about…

How many of you ever been in this situation…? You have the hots for someone… And this particular someone was a friend for quite sometime… But the hots you’re feeling only started… Then, you found out that this particular someone is seeing someone else… And they’ve started dating and all sorts… Now… What will you do??? a) Keep on being close with her, treating her with gifts, making her touched and hope that she’ll change her heart?? or b) Let go and say that you’re doing that because you love her and that you just want her to be happy…

Think about it…

If you choose a)… You may start to be annoying to her and she will see your stubbornness and persistence and anything could happen here… From falling out of friendships or even her changing heart…

and

If you choose b)… There is of course only one ending to this, since you’re backing off… Being noble and the one who ‘love’ you made the sacrifice… What to do… You love her what…

So here’s the catch to those who answered b)… Are you really that noble??? My dear friend, can you look into my eye and say that it’s ok to let go… That you’re really feeling that its fine?? That you won’t feel bad when you see her with him… Can you look me in the eye and say that you can live with the decision that you make??? Can you be honest and say you aren’t lying to yourself and that the decision you made is NOT the decision you want?

So tell me then… What will you do??

Updated: Barely a few hours after updating this post, I listened to a sermon at HFK which was about talents. The parable of the talents go something like this. A master give his servant 5,3 and 1 talent respectively and went away. The servant with 5 talents put his talents to good use and ended up with 5 more talents. The one with 3 did the same and got 3 extra talents. But the servant with 1 talent hid his talent and didn’t earn anything out of it. When the master returned, the servant with 5 talents and 3 talents showed him what they earned and the master said that they proved themself loyal and faithful and entrust them with more things. But the servant with 1 talent got sent off and stripped of his only talent because he was fearful of losing that talent. The parable went on something like this, ‘For the one who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough. But the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.’

So I thought… Everyone has gotten their own talents… Regardless of how bad or terrible they are in something… Perhaps by taking the risk to use this one talent, they will earn something else in return… Take the risk and you might have something even better… So perhaps you can just go after the girl with that one talent of yours… That one goodness you know you have in you… Even though it might have been too late… Cuz only those who risk it will have the chance to gain more… Take the safe path and whatever chance you have will be lost.

So I guess I’ll choose the first choice if it was me…. But still… Just wanna know what you all think… 🙂
