|You Never Stop Loving Someone|
You Either Were Never In Love With Them
Or You Still Are
I am talking about the kind of love where you want to learn everything about them; want to spend time with them, no matter if they are in a bad mood or not. When just their smile makes your whole day; when you can be perfectly content just staring into their eyes. That kind of love is just indescribable really; you look at them or think of them and feel so much affection for them that you're at loss for words.
You want to understand them, well enough to be able to know how they are feeling from just a look at their face; from just a simple conversation with them. You are willing to go anywhere to meet them, do anything; the only thing you care about is being there with them.
Yet what do you do when they don't feel the same way? Or even close to that way? You try to make it work; to play by their rules. The problem with that is love doesn't have rules; sooner or later you will start to miss them like crazy. Maybe start to question the relationship; wondering why they don't seem to feel very much for you. Those are dangerous thoughts; as I've said before they could easily lead to resentment, my most hated emotion.
You can talk to them about it of course, try to understand how they feel and why they feel that way. Then you have to look inside yourself; sit down and have a talk with yourself. Think of all the emotions you feel, think of how your life was before that person came into it; how it has changed since. The decision you make is not a light one that can be reversed. It will hurt you; it will hurt them. Yet sometimes it's worth taking that leap into uncharted waters; not everyone is meant to be friends. When you both feel so much differently about the other, it creates tension everyday in the relationship. This tension can be light and easily worked off, or it could be the kind that envelops you; eats away at you everyday until you're an emotional wreck. Everyone has to compromise to some degree in any relationship, yet when one person is so unwilling to make any concessions it might not work out. As everyone knows, relationships are about give and take; without it you're just asking for trouble. So while you may love that person to death; be absolutely crazy about them, sometimes you have to realize that they don't feel the same way about you and it will always be an issue. The best, albeit hardest thing you may have to do, is give them up.
