Why Can’t They Feel It?

Some people just cannot put their guards down. For them, love is a faraway land of which they know nothing. All they know about is that two people stay together and feelings can make them look vulnerable. Such people are sick and they need help. They were taught that happiness is guaranteed best when you keep every other emotion safe inside your heart. They were taught to be stonehearted; love has never been introduced as a solution to them.

This gives birth to selfishness in such people. They are protective of their own hearts and are too busy doing so to see what is going on with yours. For people who cannot love, love is a task which, too, is out of the question for them to perform. They can fake it but they can never truly take it.

You Deserve More

Half love and divided attention can make you feel like you are hard to love. You don’t quit because you see the love they are hiding in hopes of getting it out one day. You do all of it while constantly showering your own love upon them. Have you ever wondered what happens when you run out of that love since it is never reciprocated for you to always have enough?

You don’t deserve that half love. While in the mess of it, you forget that there is someone out there who is ready to give you your love back, who will not break your heart every time you give it to him/her. You are not hard to love and although you have loved someone who does not know how to love, you can always pull back for your own sake.

You deserve the best. Love, in some forms, can be destructive and half-love is one of those forms. It’s never too late; take the exit and explore because when you loved someone who could not reciprocate it, how better will you love someone who loves you just the same amount?
