There are so many different types of love. Love as in a friend, family member, colleague, life partner, Love of life. It could be Platonic, Multiple Partners, Love of self, only as a friend or just that you share Love in general without putting a name to it! When we love someone, or the things we are doing, we show everyone in contact with us a vulnerability, a secret side of our mind that shows our true self without walls!
It’s when we lower our protective barriers, that people get a glimpse of who we are, and that leaves us a bit defenseless at times. I like to think that most people have good intentions, but life has shown me otherwise. There are still true hearts out there, I don’t want to seem negative, not everyone is bad. We all can choose to be soothing, nurturing & reciprocal, but some are just not capable, they just can’t bring themselves to give back.
What I’ve learned in my life, in observing different behaviors with Love and attention is this:
-Do give your attention to people who deserve it.
-Do share of yourself, with someone who is careful with your heart.
-Do give your time to a person who is genuine with you & is reciprocating.
-Do make yourself a priority, before you give to others, otherwise you become depleted & will have nothing to give eventually.
-Don’t waste time on a potential partner or friend who could not be bothered to be attentive or responsive back, in the end they have “no potential!”
-Don’t concentrate on, or Love blindly anyone, that you can’t justify why they deserve your time, when in reality they don’t!
Lastly, and I can’t stress this enough, whether it’s Friendship, Lust, Acquaintance, or Love your after, please make damn sure the final result is this:
” If it’s not a 2 way street, walk away!!!”
