Merong isang post sa Tumblr akong nabasa. It distinguished the difference between the state of being in love and love itself.

Yung state of being in love, sabi ng post, ay yung feeling while in the relationship. Yung romantic side ng relationship, kumbaga. You bask on the present feelings of joy, yung kilig moments, the cuddling, the sweet words, the romantic dates, the stolen kisses. Dito yung best parts ng dalawang tao yung makikita mo. That is being in love.

But after all the feelings dissipate, ano na? Paano na kapag hindi ka na kinikilig? ‘Pag madalang ka na lang i-cuddle? ‘Pag wala nang romantic dates at stolen kisses? Ang natira na lang ay yung tears at awayan. Paano kapag nalaman mo na yung mga negative sides bukod doon sa mga side niya na minahal mo, what then? Lumalabas na yung negative sides nila.  Pero kahit na nakakaranas na ng negatives pero gusto mo pa rin kasama yung taong iyon through all the good AND the bad, that’s when you know that it’s love.

Maghapong tumatakbo sa isip ko itong nabasa kong ito. Kasi these past few days, things have been rocky in my relationship. Well, in a group relationship, meaning, my friends. Pwede ko namang i-apply itong sinabi nung writer di ba?

At the end, na-realize ko siya pala yung taong magaling maging in love pero hindi magaling sa love. Yung tipong dahil lang nawala na yung saya sa grupo– hindi na gaanong lumalabas, panay aral na, boring– ayaw niya na.

Naisip ko tuloy, through the two years we’ve been together as a group, naging in love lang siya. Sa huli, she never loved us. That hurts.
