3 Things A Sentimental Girl Does When She’s In Love

Women are vulnerable. And by vulnerable, I mean they carry their fragility out by cherishing the people they love. When a girl cherishes someone in her life, she will always remember that person no matter how much you’ve done to her in the past. She will never compromise your memories because for her, you existed in her life, you made her happy, and you should not be forgotten. This makes them very sentimental of the things they receive from you. Isn’t it fascinating when someone remembers you for the simple things you did and made her feel?

Sentimental women do not just cherish and take good care of the moments you’ve shared together. They also value them, and treat them like a souvenir, as if it would be the last sunset they’d ever see in their waking lives – they cherish things more than you think. I have three things here of what a sentimental girl does when she’s in love:

1. She’ll work you into her passions

She can write you a song. She can write a 7-verse poetry about you. More so, she can write an article about you. Whatever it is she can do for you using her passion, she can definitely pour her heart out being you, as her muse.

The most sentimental women I know end up writing a song for the people they love (just as I do). While you give her the best memories in your relationship, you wouldn’t have any idea how much she can creatively translate your day into three to five minutes. She can write your love story in one sitting. And she can beautifully translate her emotions into a fine melody you also can jive with.

She will write a song for – and about you – because this will remind her that you and your memories together existed; that you and your love existed. She would want you to remember her existence; as a person, and as the girl who could love you more than anything in the world.

2. She can show you the world through her vision

And by that, I mean, she will open up her heart to you in her most vulnerable state, and speak up her mind in her most intellectual self.

When a sentimental woman is on the verge of her vulnerability, she will most likely tell you all the most amazing things in the world like how much she feels about you. She will tell you how beautiful your eyes are metaphorically, or describe your scent and appeal poetically.

She will speak up her mind about what she thinks about you and will tell you what’s on her mind to show you what it’s like in her world. She will bring you to her galaxy, and you wouldn’t consider yourself a speck of dust, because you’re her brightest star.

When you feel the intensity of her heartbeat, you wouldn’t need a stethoscope to know what she feels. You’d just know it deep within her eyes. And when you see the sincerity in her eyes, you wouldn’t have to consult an ophthalmologist to assure her 20/20 vision. You are her vision, and that’s what makes her world clearer and transparent. Just take the time to look.

3. She keeps a collection of your memories together

And will cherish it, even if you choose to leave in the end.

Whether if it’s the box of McDonald’s fries you bought for her at breakfast or that plastic wrapper of Hershey’s chocolate you gave her on Valentine’s Day, she will always pin it up on her bulletin board to remind herself of what you two did that very day. Sometimes, she’d add dates to every remembrance she collects because this will serve as something she can look back at in the future.

Everyone wants someone so pure, innocent and honest, and a sentimental girl is someone whom you should start with. You will love her for her purity because her vulnerability itself is what makes the whole package of her honesty and sincerity. You wouldn’t have to worry about infidelity, because this is what loyalty starts with: in honesty. Moreover, a vulnerable woman possesses the entirety of it.

How Music Has Something To Do With Nostalgia

Music has been a great part of our lives. It comforts us during the rainy seasons and even when we feel like loathing for a recent breakup. Without music, the whole world would be plain and boring.

According to Psychcentral.com, music unquestionably affects our emotions. We tend to listen to music that reflects our mood. When we’re happy or overjoyed, we dance and enjoy ourselves to some upbeat music. We express our happiness by dancing to dubstep mixes perhaps by DVBBS and Borgeous. Sometimes, if we’re mad or angry, we consume ourselves with some dark rock music that reflects our level of anger. And whenever we loathe or sulk in during the cold stormy nights, we listen to sad and slower music to understand and interpret the lyrics and its meaning as if we relate our whole lives in it because to tell you, the whole world of reality lacks one thing: A Background Music.

Kidding aside, most of us love music or simply just loves to listen to music. If you take away music in a musically inclined or a music lover’s life, you’re like locking away a man on a white room with white walls and white ceilings for a month. Who else wouldn’t go crazy from that? Silence is deafening!

When we choose what to put on our playlist, we always make sure that the melody is either danceable or catchy, and the lyrics be relatable or both. That’s the reason why we often tend to give our friendships, relationships, and even an important persona theme song. Eventually, they are what we remember whenever certain songs are played on the radio, until we couldn’t get them out of our heads even after months or years have passed. Talk about the absurdity of nostalgia?

Eventually, we tend to elude some songs from our Playlists that reminds us of our heartbreaks when we’re trying to move on because the more you listen to a song that reminds you of a significant person, the more you remember them. And the more you remember them, the more you remember the memories.

While the olfactory triggers emotional memories, the auditory triggers vivid memories

According to a researcher from the University of California, the region of the brain where memories of our past are supported and retrieved. It also serves as a hub that links familiar music, memories, and emotion. The hub is located in the medial prefrontal cortex region — right behind the forehead — and one of the last areas of the brain to atrophy over the course of the Alzheimer’s disease.

While the discovery may help explain why music can elicit strong responses from people with Alzheimer’s, you also would know whether or not you have moved on from a past lover with what the auditory triggers.

Yes, you read that right! You can get a hint of your moving on progression from your sense of hearing too. Whenever you listen to an old music that reminded you of someone, you will always – and always – feel the same thing no matter what. And, sometimes, an old music is a great assessment to know whether or not you have moved on yet or not.

If you still feel the same thing but care less, you’re halfway through it. But if you still feel the same like a fresh wound that hasn’t been applied Antiseptic Wound Remedy and band-aid on it, you’re still in it.

You won’t forget the feeling and the scenario

Flashbacks of the places, the memories and even the person itself would consume you. Right there, you’d feel like nostalgia is taking its toll. You’d feel like you’re at the same time and place regardless of how many years have passed.

If you hear Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up randomly on a convenience store, or something that reminds you of how you and that certain person counted glow-in-the-dark stars in his room at 10 PM and feel the same, all of the memories you stuck behind your subconscious will come back. What’s more ironic is that you will feel like two years ago is just like yesterday.

You won’t be quick to realize that the person you used to have feelings for is the same person you moved on from today

When we move on from a person – as in move on like we really don’t care about him or her stability that much anymore – we usually disregard the recent events about their lives. But when an old song is played, you will automatically reminisce how it was like holding his hand for the first time, and probably what it felt like having your first kiss.

At the end of the day, you’ll just end up talking to yourself; realizing how much you fell in love with a man you’re finally moved on with. You’d be like, “Thank God I don’t feel the same anymore”, celebrating the inner peace within you. I mean you wouldn’t spend a lot to buy another heartbreak, would you?

You’ll realize you’re not the same person anymore

Pain inevitably changes people – whether for the better, or for the worse. When we have our hearts badly broken, we tend to become stronger, bolder, wiser and smarter.

When an old song you used to sing with a person plays on the radio, you will realize the changes that occurred. You will realize how weak you were, or how dumb you were when you were unconsciously or indirectly begging for an ex to stay, or how much you’ve pretended to be okay being your ex’s rebound girl on a girl he replaced you with.

With that, you will realize a lot of things have changed now. And if you did it for the better, you couldn’t be more proud of yourself because of a past experience you finally conquered and got over with.

Do not make an old song a hindrance of you becoming better. Just because it reminded you of something bad from the past, or something that breaks your heart, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. It just means that you started out a new life with the constant change that is the only permanent thing in the world. It just means you started out a new life, with a new song… and a new set of playlists.
