A Way of Love


There was once this guy who is very much in love with his girl. This
romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of paper-cranes as a gift to his girl.
Although, at that time he was just a small fry in his company, his
future doesn't seemed too bright, they were very happy together. Until
one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come
back. She also told him that she couldn’t visualize any future for the
both of them, so let's go their own ways there and then.

Heartbroken, the guy agreed. But when he regained his confidence,
he worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to
make something out of him.

Finally with all these hard work and the help of friends, this guy had
set up his own successful company. You never fail until you stop trying.

One rainy day, while this guy was driving, he saw an elderly couple
sharing an umbrella in the rain, walking to some destination.
Even with the umbrella, they were still drenched.

It didn't take him long to realize those were
his girl's parents. With a heart at getting back at them, he drove slowly
beside the couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He
wanted them to know that he wasn't the same anymore; he had his
own company, car, comfort etc. He had made it!

Before the guy can realize, the couple was walking towards a cemetery,
and he got out of his car and followed…. and he saw his girl,
a photograph of her smiling sweetly as ever at him from her tombstone…
and he saw his paper cranes beside her.

Find time to realize that there is one person who means so much to you;
for you might wake up one morning losing that person
who you thought meant nothing to you.

Her parents saw him. He asked them why this had happened.
They explained that she did not leave for France at all.
She was ill with cancer.
She had believed that he will make it someday,
but she did not want to be his obstacle …
therefore she had chosen to leave him…

She had wanted her parents to put his paper cranes beside her,
because if the day comes when fate brings him to her again he can
take some of those back with him…

This story that I read from the internet tells us that
just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

What are your thoughts?

By the way, if you are looking to manifest relationship
or anything in your life, this may help you.

    That’s such a lovely story, but I don’t see if it was him who didn’t love her the way she wanted or her who didn’t love him the way he wanted – which was it? I think it was neither of those options. You said this story very beautifully and I think it was the first answer you gave before – ‘find time to realize that there is one person who means so much to you; for you might wake up one morning losing that person who you thought meant nothing to you.’

    It would have been better if the girl had talked to him about her illness – although that’s not always so easy. Thanks for the lovely story.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      Lets step back for a moment.
      If the girl or the guy had taken a different way to love,
      would the ending be the same or different?
      Would the ending be better or worse?

      Nobody knows,
      and it does not matter now anyway, right? 🙂
