“Never love anybody who treats you like you’re ordinary.”
We should all search for that special someone who treats us as if we were extraordinary. For that is how we should all be treated. We should be touched gently and whispered to lovingly. Caressing someone down to their soul. Love should not be easily thrown away on a whim. Nor should it be spoken of lightly.
Extraordinary is in the power of one’s hand softly gliding on a cheek to brush away a tear. Which can also be there to help guide and nurture a fragile moment only shared between two. An inside knowing. A knowing that in that moment it is just the two standing in the stillness of time. A long pause, when two lips meet. Sparks of excitement and butterflies abound.
Extraordinary is in the stare that captures you from a distance. It is the cheeky upturned corner of one’s mouth that slyly entices you to come near. It is the collapse of all defences. The gentle breathe of an exhale. It’s something that makes you yearn for more and want to keep on learning the depths of someone. And it is in the depths of your heart where these feelings will grow. If watered correctly, not too much and not too often, then it will bloom hearty and rich. If it is neglected it will wither, ceasing to exist.
Treating someone in an extraordinary fashion will mean 100% commitment. It will mean to put someone else before yourself. But oh, to be able to show a person a love like that, will enrich your life for the better as well as theirs.
Every being on this earth deserves to be cared for in an extraordinary way. And it doesn’t mean to show them in grandiose gestures. Buying them the riches of the world. It’s the holding out of chairs, the opening of doors, the helping of one’s studies, the hand on a shoulder for support, the patting on the back of a job well done, the selfless hours you stayed up with them through the night when they were ill. It is in all the tiniest of gestures. And to many it is in those tiny gesture where they will feel the most glorious of feelings.
Can you do this for someone? Can you treat them in an extraordinary way? If the answer is no. Then walk away. Please don’t torment them with half-hearted affections and lies of commitment while your eye is set on another prize. But if the answer is yes, then proceed with confidence. Be proud that you are of a giving nature. That you want to live a love that is just. A love that is selfless. To those that have said yes. Please don’t close completely if someone has used your love in an unjust way. There are many out there that will. Remember to always be open, even though it will be hard at times. For to close one’s heart is to close the door on life. And oh what a sad, meaningless existence that would be.
