Connected Hearts

The connection is bigger than you and I.

The pain doesn't stop the heart from loving.

Everyone in life has faced hurt from the ones they love at one point in life. There are just some people who—no matter what you have been through with them—you still can't stop loving them. You think about them all the time even when you are not with each other. When you see them, your heart just skips a beat.

You can't find enough words in the world to explain the feeling but things with that person are just different.

There is always that one person.

If you have never experienced that connection, it is really something beautiful.

No matter how far away you guys drift away, that priceless love just never dies.

Why is that?

What is the meaning of it all?

There are some people in the world that share a rare connection. A connection that not even those two people can explain. A connection that keeps bringing back those two people together no matter how long they have been apart. No matter how they try and stay apart. That connection is always there. There is always a force that clicks once they walk into the same room. A connection that just clicks no matter the time apart; it could be days, months, or years. Once those hearts encounter each other, there is just something special that happens.

So why not be together?

Why fight that connection?

There are just some things you can't fight or explain.

There are some connections created.

There are some connections that were ordained.

Something special.

Unexplainable. 

It could be a friendship, it could be a relationship, but no matter what it is, it is something special and some try and run from it and even try and fight it. Some people go out and try and test all the fish in the sea to try and escape it but no matter what, it never really changes anything. Distance never changed it and time never changed it. It is just something special, unexplainable; something bigger than everyone. People make so many movies about it. It is truly something beautiful.

You see one character leave a city for years and then come back when they are grown and the same old sparks between the two people reignite. 

Some people run from it.

Movies love to be based around the connection. Play around with the idea. 

There is one thing and that is it is truly beautiful to see that connection between two people. The connection that is impossible to fight. The connection that is undeniable. In other words, some things that they call and refer to as "two people just meant to be."

Like stories of: 

Adam to Eve.

Mary to Joseph.

Ruth to Boaz.

Bonnie to Clyde.

Like a glove fits into a hand.

The right shoe size fits a foot.

Like bread and butter.

Like water to the body.

There are some connections that are ordained. Connections that are strong or, in other words, MEANT TO BE.

There are strong connections that tend to scare many people and cause them to try and push it away or even run away from it but when they run, they definitely can't hide. It tends to find them wherever they go. It could be today, tomorrow, next year, or ten years from now. It always tends find its way.

The funniest part is that it is often the people we tend to treat the worst or overlook. Those are the ones we tend to have to come back to. Things just have a funny way of working out. Don't burn some bridges because life has a funny way of causing you to need those same bridges once again. The bridge that connects one to another. Like two people running slowly towards each other in a love movie. 

Some people try to fight it.

Some people try to deny it but connections happen and when it is a different connection from the rest, you just know. You may not want to admit it too, but in your heart, you just know.

There are many people who wish they had a love that never died, a connection that lasts forever but what they don't realize is that it was there in that person they overlooked. It was there the whole time.

It was there hiding within someone but instead of accepting it, they tried to find better. They tried to fight it.

Never knowing that the BEST was right there the whole time.
