Couples Relationships Marriage Tips I’m Gonna Love You Like I’m Gonna Lose You
Know this trendy song by Meghan Trainor & John Legend? I just love it! I love the message in the lyrics because it reminds me of a conversation I had with a Japanese tourist years ago. It was in language school when I was studying to improve my English. Our teacher asked each one to describe their cultural background in English (what else?). The guy from Japan explained about the ZEN culture. He said they learn it there from the moment they are born, but promised to try to give us the gist (not that there is one).
One of the things he explained about relationships in the Zen culture was how they say goodbye. He said that they always say goodbye, as if it’s the last time they see the person. That struck me right there and then and stayed with me since. I thought “How interesting… I never thought of saying goodbye like that…”. When we asked him to explain, he said that it is so that we don’t take relationship for granted. And, this is how this song “Like I’m gonna lose you” lyrics caught my attention.
