Why Fight for Love?

Cristian Mihai, a fellow blogger on WordPress once wrote something in one of his comments’ section that made me both laugh out loud as well as think hard.

It’s difficult to find love. But if you do, you gotta fight for it. Fight for it like you are the third monkey on Noah’s ark. And it starts raining…

— Cristian Mihai

Think of any of your favourite characters on any of your favourite shows, who ended up alone. I would like to mention Joey Tribbiani from Friends. He was, beyond doubt, the guy with the largest heart amongst the six main characters. He was also the most charming. But why was it that none out of the numerous ladies he met (and slept with) could not be the last? Remember those few women including Rachel who Joey actually fell in love with? Why could it never work out with any one of them too? Because he NEVER fought for his love! He was always ready to step back at the smallest of problems, even if that meant pushing himself into a state of sadness with a broken heart.

Don’t commit the same mistake. If you think someone makes you happier than you have ever been before, fight to make that happiness stay. If someone has brought peace into your turmoil-filled life, fight for that peace. If someone makes your world go round, fight before you lose that person and your world comes to a standstill.

Being the good and generous person that you are does not always give the best result. It is always better to give it your all than going down without a fight. Be it time or circumstances or opposition or your own petty excuses in your head, give them a good fight.

For a change, let love win. β™₯

    1. Thank you so much for calling my post “the best you read today.” It really means a lot! I’m so humbled that I gave you food for thought. 😁
      In between, I am only one of the many who read Cristian’s blogs.

  1. I don’t think you should ever have to fight for love. I think it’s the wrong approach. Nor should one look for love. Only if you’re desperate. It should come to you unexpectedly and naturally 😊

    1. Hi, thanks for stopping by to comment. It would be nice if I could know your name while replying.

      I respect your opinion and really wish love is as easy and organic for everyone. πŸ™‚ But the case is not so most of the time. There is always something (sometimes even the self) that has to be overcome to achieve its happiness.

      I agree. When we are passionate about something, we must be willing to put effort into it, or else even the best things don’t survive. Your point about “both” people working towards the same goal is also absolutely right. That is what makes it worth it! πŸ’•

      1. Good morning Mia my friend. I am also grateful for your support. What you said is true. Any two people living together for years takes work. We are all so different. Sending you love and hugs my friend. Love ❀️ Joni

  2. Sometimes, we have to love enough to not let go, unlike the popular adage “you let go what you love. It’ll return if it’s true.” I find the latter stupid at times. I mean, why can’t we try to save it if at all it’s possible and worthy? I really enjoyed this perspective of yours.

    Christian Mihai is one of my first followers. But somehow, I’ve missed the link to his blog. Can you please share his blog’s URL?

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Anisha! πŸ™‚

      I love your line, “Sometimes, we have to love enough to not let go.” ❀
      Yes, we must try our best so that we don’t have any regrets later. If it still doesn’t work, then well, that’s that. But what if it does? πŸ™‚
