Why is it so hard for people to feel loved?
Sometimes I feel like I live in this crazy, starved world, with people selling themselves for nothing, settling for less than they deserve, and giving themselves away. When in reality, the couple who has been together for fifty years and a girl with an abusive boyfriend all wanted the same thing. Love. We were made to love and be loved, every single one us in different ways.
Above all things, I think it is important to stay true to one's self, and to be patient. At least from my own experience, it's so easy to just date or get close to the first person you see, but this can land people in a world of hurt. Not everyone will love you, and you don't need everyone. Just those that respect, love and care about you, and that you feel the same way about.
Don't give up. Love is a real thing, and it will come with time. I have to remind myself of this all the time.
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is to love and be loved in return."
