I don’t know. I am not too much into literature. I was always a science techy, mad in the Maths, physics and chemistry until at one point, I thought counting and keeping money will be good. Not just that, but I could back it up with the Maths.
Oh, back to the post. I don’t know much about literature, but I think Romeo and Juliet, though not so much of a piece, is probably one of the best “romantic tragedies” Shakespeare ever wrote. I have read it at least 30 times, and each time I read, I asked myself…
Should something as good as love come at a bitter cost?
When two people are in love with each other, they look upon themselves and the entire universe different from how any other person sees it. Because of these contradicting views, it is very easy for the relationship to be disapproved, or for them to be rejected by their close ones. This becomes worse when both parties are different in values. There, I am talking about economic, social, cultural, ethical values…etc, and a lot more you can think of.
The truth about the cross of love is that anyone truly in love will take chances and carry it. It is surprising what people can do when they are in love. They appear to be wiser, fearless and aggressive. The cross is so heavy that some people give up on the way. They struggle and convince their inner selves that their intentions are genuine, but the love sought does not worth all the trouble.
Have you ever been rejected?
Have you ever been rejected by friends and the family of someone you love? What was their reason? That you were not good enough and was not up to the value of your lover? That your lover is not yet ready and that they will be the one to say “when” and “who”? When faced with such a situation, you are considered an enemy by his/her friends and relations. You are being held responsible for any negative change in his/her character. They may hate you so much that at times, they won’t want to see you or answer any greetings from you. I have heard of, and observed terrible situations like this.
I was lucky, my case was different!
After dating Uncle Che for about three months, it became obvious to each of us (though no one spoke about it to the other) that we were meant for each other and will be spending the rest of our lives together. I thought it wise that both of us should get acquainted to our various families. That was his idea too, but he was trying to take it slower than I was. We were living about 300 miles away, he in Buea while I was in our hometown, Bamenda. I got tired waiting for him to get his leave from his job acheter viagra maroc.
I know you will say I was nuts, but maybe I was just in love. I took a bold step to go to his family and introduced myself. Lucky enough, he has been saying nice things about me and our relationship and told his mum to expect us to come together and visit them.
I was scared, let me admit it. He has always told me his mum is very welcoming but I didn’t want to rely on that.
I didn’t believe what I experienced. It was so sweet that I don’t know how to put it. Uncle Che’s mum was very happy when I told her I was a friend. His kid brothers and sisters sat very close to me, and the younger ones were excited sitting and leaning on my labs. After about an hour of friendly discussions, I opened up to his mum and told her that I was Uncle Che’s date. Imagine! She jumped up, held me close to her chest and always lifted me up. Two of his kid sisters who understood what I meant came up to me, shook hands again as if it was the first time they were seeing me. “Oh My! Che finally decided to love an angel?” Those were the words that came out from her mouth.
I was gladly received, and loved. I am still wanted and loved up to this date. I think they even love me more than they love Uncle Che. It feels good being accepted by the relations of the one you love.
