Early Morning Epiphany

BY:  Hamlet Viktor Perez Lumayag

“I no longer believed in the idea of soulmates or love at first sights. but i was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you are lucky you will meet someone who is exactly right for you, not because he was perfect or you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together”

– Lisa Kleypas

It’s quite funny for me to read this first thing in the morning. Its like being hit in the gut and seing the light; hence the title. So I took the liberty of writing about it. It’s true that hapiness eludes us most of the time. We often look for that certain someone who fits whatever standard we set. It is only natural as human beings to want perfection but sometimes we are too blinded by the idea of a fairytale relationship that we deny reality. If there was one thing I learned from the (many) failed relationships I’ve had, it would be never to set standards; because once you crash and burn, theres no one to blame but yourself. True love nowadays is hard to come by yes, but it doesn’t mean that it does not exist or you were never meant to be happy. Sit back. Let yourself heal. Recover. Have a drink and get wasted if you want. Do what you must to be ok again. Trust me, after a while it will be all forgoten. Never be bitter or harbor grudges. It will only drag you down. Cliche as it may sound, but the right one for you is closer than you think. All you have to do is wait. You’d realize soon enough that the standards that you set were just selfish lines that you drew around yourself. Fall inlove with someone imperfect. Someone who so valiantly tried and failed. Someone who has nothng but is willing to give you everything. Someone who sees the brains behind your eyes and the heart beneath your breasts. Someone who has loved and lost. Someone like you. One whos not at all perfect but perfectly compliments your flaws.
