You have to accept the love you get, not more not less. You have to understand that people give you love they are capable of. You can’t expect more from them.
Not only To keep yourself from getting hurt but to be fair to them too. They give what they are capable of, take it with open arms and appreciate it. Path to expectation, especially love, is a destructive road. You only end up hurting yourself while most of the time the other person is oblivious to it. You have to understand people love the way they can, the only ways they know they can. The day you learn to accept and be happy with whatever amount of love you get, is the day you will be freed.
I’m not saying to settle for less than you think you deserve, Not at all. Never settle for less,especially when it comes to love. All I’m saying is life will be a tad bit easier if you accept whatever amount of love people give you in return to yours. At least they are giving you something. At least they are trying, It’s something. Something is better than nothing. Especially when it comes to love.
Love is the exception to everything, all the rules, all the philosophies, all the rights, all the wrongs. Love is…whatever you make of it.
