I saw in London an inscription which had the above phrase writte.

'Grief is the price we pay for love'

Then immediately I made a thought

oh there must be many people who have experienced that grief .
Nobody had told me  that before.I wish I had known .

Sometimes I am wondering why life has been so unfair.
Why when we give love we receive grief and disappointment ?

It is so hurtful to show your love to somebody and find out that you are a nuisance to him ,
he ignores you ,he does not care about you.
Is it because this is a wrong love ,with the wrong person ,at the wrong time ?
Is it because you may love somebody who has not the same feelings towards you?
All the above are possibly the reasons in my case.
  How could I imagine that one person can make me so happy one time and so desperate in another moment?
But people say that love has no time ,there is not wrong love ,love is above all difficulties.

Where is the truth?Who knows?
Should I be scared of grief.Will it do damage to me?
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

Today I find my best friends dog passed away

I knew him for his whole life...very upsetting but allt he happiness they bring must be worth while as you say..

Maybe to love is better that to never loved at all...

Also my boyfriend made me unhappy...actually all weekend make me unhappy....I think its my problem...happiness comes from within :)

I think your thread would make everybody to think it over and over.

Dear Xilaren,I think your love is great whatever it happend later on that person that you once loved.
I am sure that you realized  that you loved wrong person at wrong place and time.But it is not ur fault.

Can you try to let the past be past?
We want a healthy friend this time.
***always to be yourself***

Unfortunately my feelings are not superficial.They are really deep and strong.
There is nothing wrong with the guy.The fact that he has touched me means  that he is a wonderful person.
He is in my mind all the time. .He is following me everywhere.I can not say more I am sorry.
The only thing I can say is that I have really deep and strong feelings for him.I have tested myself so many times.I have the feeling that I have tired him.I need to do something for me.I may go to London and stay with my daughter  until Christmas.Anyway I will think about it.
Thank you for your concern.:kiss:
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

Terry Jacks - Seasons in the Sun

Lyrics:

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
Weve known each other since were nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABCs,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, its hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them Ill be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, its hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them Ill be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, its hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers everywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach

Grief is the price we pay for love...

That's true.. sometimes life is just unfair.. but we hv no choice but let it go..

"Is it because you may love somebody who has not the same feelings towards you?"

Yes, she gave me this reason...

When I was on the way and walked to work this morning, with listening some music both us loved, I felt so sad...
