"I learned that I cannot demand love from anyone. I can only give good reasons for them to like me…and be patient for life to do the rest.”
Him not loving you back does not have anything to do with who you are as a person.
We don’t really know why we do it, why we insist on pursuing someone who doesn’t love us. We persist and resist, thinking distorted thoughts like, “if I tell him this, he might…” or “if I change this, it’s possible that…” as if this would achieve anything.
However, love isn’t a vending machine. You can’t put in a coin, press a button, and get the drink you wanted. Sometimes, there’s no other remedy than to take the jump, forget all your false hopes, and stop killing yourself over someone who’s gone in a different direction with other people.
Understand that love is not sacrifice. It’s never worth it to think things like, “if I stop doing this maybe they’ll love me,” or “if I change this and that about myself they’ll like me more.” Don’t do it. Don’t commit emotional suicide, don’t humiliate yourself, don’t set fire to the only thing that gives you strength and that is your self-esteem.
Even though you might be discouraged right now my besh, don’t let your head hang down. Know that is was nothing you did or said, it wasn’t you at all actually, it was him. It was something within him that wouldn’t let him love you or anyone for that matter.
You are bright and beautiful and brilliant, don’t ever forget that and you are enough.
Sobrang swerte ng susunod na mamahalin ko. Punong puno yung puso ko, nag hihintay lang ng bubuhusan, kung sino ka man, gusto kong malaman mo na pinagdadasal ko na sana last ka na.
