Why do we lose ourselves in love?

February 19, 2007 9:18am CST
I sometimes wonder why do we still care for people whom at times don't even think of us in a day or two? How can we love people who don't seem to make things worthy at all? Why do we let ourselves get hurt and continue hoping for a love that makes us defenseless? And why do we still think of these people who only choose us as an option? Are these the reasons why sometimes in love, we end up losing ourselves?

Because there isn't a magic button to turn our feelings off even when we want to. Another reason is that some of us understand that we cannot allow the other person's behavior to dictate how we feel. Also remember that our job is to love the unloveable. Hope this helps.
