Love is like betting all you've got even up to the last cent! You can win and get more than what you've put into it or you can lose and be completly empty-handed. Don't try to look at it as how much love you lost but think of it as how much love you gave. This makes loving worthwhile and in return makes you worthy of being loved someday Remember, it will never be your lost to lose someone who doesn't love you but rather it will be their lost in letting someone go who loves them like you do.

The end of a relationship means the beginning of a period of mourning and healing for both people. If the break up was mutual both people will experience a period of adjustment where they are getting used to no longer being together. If the break up was not mutual the person who ended things may be dealing with guilt and feeling that they may have made mistake. Thanks ^^

That is good advice. It reminds me of that old adage that it is better to love and lost then never loved at all. Even if our love is unrequited, the fact that we loved that person shows that we are human. Without love, the world becomes dank, and life loses its meaning. The more you love, the more you grow, so do not worry if that one rejects you, there is a better one waiting around the corner.

Indeed... like the song of Rascalls flatts... Let me quote the whole stanza Every long lost dream led me to where you are Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars Pointing me on my way into your loving arms This much I know is true That God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you How's that??? Something like what you have just said... :) Thanks for lettin me remember this song.

what a very nice advice. lol..I've copieed it and share it to my student who had just had her heart broken. Her boyfriend has a new girl, after 5 years of going steady. I keep on cheering her up everyday telling her that he's not worth of her tears. What I've learned so far, is to enjoy love as it comes, and the heartaches that i've gone through were teachers to make me stronger, stand up and not to do the same mistake again. And hope for the right one to come, and by that time we are ready not to commit the same mistake again. Enjoy life, life is short anyway. ^_^

Jhordie I am a very lucky widow who was married to one man for 34 years and loved and was loved, he never broke my heart ever.he was my friend and I was his, and we loved each other madly and we were really happy we shared all most everything and were lovers and best friends and would never hurt each other ever. I did bet all my money and never regretted it once. my dad did not like my marrying him but that was beside the point at 31 I knew my mind and my love, my hubby was 37. so we were old enough to know what we were doing.

Definitely correct! Aside from that that is your choice. You did what you want when your there so there's no suppose to point fingers and say that you love them more. If you have done something in your life don't blame anyone because it's your choice.

I love the fact that it was our own choice and you are precisely correct saying that we shouldn't blame anyone at all. Thanks for that wonderful share

[b]You are right. Love is like a game to be played between two people. Tere might be a loser, there might be a winner. It would be good if all players win. So that everyone is happy. It's better to love and lost than not to love at all.[/b]

well to me love is the best thing in the world. some view it as a gamble as it's win-all or lose-all. but for me, i look at it as a chance to spend a great time with someone i love. maybe at the end of it we didn't manage to stay together. but think about all the great time we've spent together. it's really more than worth it already. falling in love itself is such a wonderful feeling. i agree that it's never a loss to lose someone who doesn't love you. cheers ;p

Hello my good friend, jhordz... Haha. I've had my heart broken a lot of times and I do have kept that in mind. Excellent advice. I'd probably say the same thing to a broken-hearted person. Thanks for putting this up!

That is just the right way of thinking how we could ahre our love. Love should be unconditional and we should give it freely. I just wish that many would follow your advice I wonder how beatiful this world would be if all of us would think that way.

Hi jhordie, welcome to mylot and have fun. It is a good advise with nice thinking and words. I agree with you that is not your lost to lose someone who doesn't love you but their lost letting someone that loves them go away. Love is not easy to find and who that let it go is a idiot. When some person don't give the worth that love have don't deserve be loved. Thanks for share and be sure that it will be good for someone here. Welcome and cheers.
