When I was younger, when asked to choose between staying in a tumultuous love relationship versus inner peace, I would go and fight for love without any hesitation. I don't know if its because of ignorance, reading too much love stories where in the end love triumphs, or the exuberance of youth.
Now that I'm much older and after encountering many relationships, I value more my inner peace than drama. I don't know if I'm tired fighting for love or simply wiser.
I have realized that peace brings me more joy than love in a roller coaster ride even if it means that I will continue my journey in life alone.
Alone but not lonely. Alone but at peace.
But I will never say never. Someday, someone worth my peace may come along.
