“Never rush into falling in love, because love never runs out. Let love be the one to knock at your door. Besides, true love is worth waiting for. Waiting is a sign of true love. Anyone can say, I Love You, but not everyone can wait, and prove it’s true.” ~ Unknown
True love is beautiful. However, when searching for true love, never invest love somewhere, where the love is not mutual. Invest your love in relationships where it has the potential for growth, and where you can get a good return on what you invest into it.
With love, you can contribute, but you cannot control. You can give your all, but if the person you are involved with does not share like interests in having a committed relationship… it won’t grow, and it won’t work. Therefore, whenever you have spent time: 1. Showing interest 2. Trying to make it work, and… 3. Being kind, and the same love is not being reciprocated; move on. It won’t matter if you:
- Improve your wardrobe
- Lose weight
- Make cosmetic changes to your body
- Change careers to improve your income
- Do everything in your power to make the other person happy…
… None of those things will change the other person… if they don’t share the same feelings. Therefore, learn to love you… while you wait for something better. It might take time, but you will find someone who loves you back. Don’t ever feel like you have to force it. If a relationship is meant to be, trust me, it will happen… and you will know it is the real thing.
People who put themselves in situations where they try to force love, sometimes don’t realize how much it consumes them as a person. The constant uncertainty of “Not knowing” if things will ever evolve into something wonderful and special…can be exceedingly painful and nerve-wracking. Don’t put yourself through the heartache. It is wonderful to feel in love, but the constant anxiety is not worth it. It will hurt; and it will cause you undue stress.
Love is a choice. And you deserve the kind of love, in return, that you give out… and nothing less. Don’t settle just so you don’t have to be alone. Only accept the kind of love that will bring you true happiness. Be strong… and be true to yourself.
You are valuable to GOD, and GOD would never want anything less than the best for you. Instead of “Going fishing”, take care of yourself, and patiently wait for the love you need and deserve. “You are worth more than many sparrows”. GOD will provide.
