This thing they call Love

It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. Most people who got hurt in a relationship were probably hurt because the person they were in love with didn't love them back enough. 

Of course, it's a good feeling to love and to be loved back  but there is a something we are all missing.

 What is this thing they call love? 

I did a survey, asking people what their motive is, for loving someone. I got replies like they want happiness, intimacy, being part of the person's life, being loved back by the person e.t.c. I realised in the result of the survey that most people want a reciprocated love by the person they are showing it to. But should this be so?  No! 

Now love in this context isn't only erotic love but love in general. 

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect love in return, just wait for it to grow in their heart and if it doesn't. Be content it grew in yours. There are things you'd love to hear that you'd never hear from the person whom you'd like to hear it from but don't be so deaf as not to hear it from the one who says it from their heart. Now that's Love!
