I really think the work ‘love’ is used to often in inappropriate circumstances too often. I believe until you really have had your heart truly broken you can’t appreciate love in its rawest form which is what we should be striving for. Love is used to often to relate to material and frivolous things. That to me has nothing to do with love. It’s about putting everything on hold or at risk for someone, the desire to need nothing else in your life.
But your heart can break so badly when you are told you are loved and you find out those words were said to draw you in to a persons cruel game. You find out the love was one sided. It had to be one sided because if they truly loved you like they said they wouldn’t have treated you like a throw away commodity.
The human heart is not a commodity to use and abuse for your own purposes. The betrayal felt and scars left can last a lifetime. To protect themselves people put up barriers and often find it so difficult to let others in ever again. To let others see the real them because they are so afraid of going through that hurt again.
But sometimes they feel an amazing connection with another and over time those barriers come down. To then be betrayed again can be devastating.
Honesty costs nothing. If you are lacking something in your life because someone hurt you, don’t go and look for that missing element with another. Don’t throw the word ‘love’ around unless you mean it with all your heart. Don’t go in to relationships half heartedly. It’s unfair.
Sort your own issues out and don’t look for the one thing you are missing in your life with another until you have. Love means giving your whole and if you can’t do that then have the decency to walk away before someone gives you their heart.
