Hi, I’m Jacobo.

Welcome to the catalog of my thoughts and learnings.

No ordinary love

No ordinary love

When you came my way
You brightened every day
With your sweet smile
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary love
— Helen Folasade Adu | Sade

The song doesn’t match the quote.

So what, most things in life don’t match either. People are the best example.

Relationships aren’t great by default, people make them great. If you expect Mr or Ms right to show up one day, you’ll be waiting a long time.

A few people will come your way, some for whom you’ll be willing to fight, and others you will not. Those worthy of your time and effort will have a serious chance to become an integral part of your existence.

The idea of perfect love that you get from a Netflix romantic comedy doesn’t exist. The story never talks about what happens after the last scene. The disagreements, the quirks, the smelly feet and dirty shoes.

Good news for you, once you accept there is no love like the one you see in the movie, things get a lot better. Imperfections are both frustrating and adorable.
