Past experiences might tend to make a person question every friendship or relationship that might come their way. Sometimes, people are so stripped of their emotions that it may seem like they have nothing to give. But isn’t life all about fighting, loving and giving? Trust me, I’ve felt that all this giving has gotten me nowhere; that I had been giving all this love, courage and strength to the world but don’t get anything out of it.
Maturity is when you learn to give without expectations. Love is such a pure emotion that should be felt with confidence and never any doubt. Expectation is a monster that finds ways to lessen the love you have to give.
To learn from the life you live that sharing, loving and caring, giving into connections without looking for any profit or loss from it is something rare to find in a person and is worth developing within yourself. Loving yourself fiercely enough to have a lot of that same love left for other people without them having to owe you anything is beautiful.
I can’t seem to love people for last times. You never stop feeling certain ways about certain people, whether it is respect, admiration or love. You only grow to forget your feelings over time and grow strong enough to not remind yourself of it or sometimes, just realize how much you’ve learnt from it. Experiences let you build strength in your character. How you chose to let events affect you, how you let people lessen the love you have to give, how you beat yourself up so much for having wasted time and effort on relationships that didn’t last.
It is important to realize that even if it didn’t last or work out the way you wanted it to, you have so much left to learn from it.
I used to think that being selfless; being protective, kind and loving to those they care for makes one warm but it is much more than that. It is realizing and value the love you receive and love further beyond; beyond your guard; past all the sad, sorrowful, broken feelings that love has made you feel in the past.
We must all evolve from our past experiences and so we shall. x
