Giving But Not Getting love Back.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours. Are you, or have you been, in that position?

Somewhat different... in time, their love for me grew, but in much less time; I think upon the intrusion of another, their love changed. They still loved me, but it was different. Somebody had taken away all I had time to build up with this guy. I was devastated and felt like lying down and giving up, but back he came, time after time, although since then, he has never been the same. It was like every time we got close, he was afraid, and stepped back to avoid his feelings running away with him. It also seems that this has happened to me more than once in my life, so there must be some problem, somewhere. I'm getting too wise and ancient now... too many heartaches under the bridge and too many tears on my chest. When I love somebody that much... I'm sorry, but I think I have a right to expect something back, even if it's only respect.... don't you think? That's it... a cup of tea required. lol. I'm too emotional for my own good, I think. Have a great evening.

We can expect it back but if it does not come then we move on and treasure what we have had or have now.

Phew... if only it were that easy. I've moved on more than once, but that, I think kinda hurts his pride. Long story and one that doesn't really need putting in here, but I'll be happy to talk about it with you sometime, as a close and understanding friend, if you wish to discuss things. A friend once pointed out how she saw what was happening but she was a bit negative on men at the time, lol, but then, another girlfriend surprised me, by giving me a completely different view of the situation... that only confused me more. So, I sort of take three steps forward, in moving on, then two back. Sooner or later though, something has to really give and I feel as though I'm in a transition period at the moment... pretty static, but something drastic is about to happen. I'm gathering strength; I can feel the powers increasing, but who knows what's around the corner? I know where i want to be, and I know who I want to be with, but it's rare they feel the same way, or if they do, they won't admit it! lol. So... come November... we'll see if the readings were right. They seem to be coming together some... one can only hope. :) Till then, I have to follow the good advice of my Earthangel; keep my face tilted towards the moon, and keep dancing. :)

i couldn't agree more. expecting love to return is restless. Better just love the person and let go. Just remember the law of nature, every thing that you give away someday will be return to you,by the person its self or form into only God know it would be.

That is true. We have to just keep on giving and not expect too much.

Yes, trust me its hard to think that its sufficient to feel and let love grow for someone even if that person doesnt feel the same way for you.

Yes it is difficult but we have to be satisfied that they came into our life.

Thats how it is when you have kids you give them all your love and they may hate you in their teen years because they dont know why you are restricting them...But when they grow up they will love you ...Well most children do..If you take care of them they take care of you.....

Time is a great healer and also works the other way sometimes. So all we have to do is keep giving our love in hope it comes back to us, and if it doesn't then it so what we have enough love in ourselves to compensate. Have a lovely day from Deeeky.
