From here on, I will believe that the level of love I feel towards someone is equally how that person feels towards me. In past experiences, I learned that a single moment of doubt ruins everything. Squeeze out all your love from your one and only heart.
If you want to live a better perspective, then become open-minded. Don’t push those who care for you away. If you don’t want to be hurt, make it hurt less by loving back.
Stray thought: what kind of love is necessary to keep you alive? Ask yourself who’s been with you during heartbreaks and heartaches. Whose shoulder did you cry on? Whose waist did you cling to? Whose hand held yours? Any lover can provide this, but not every lover means it. Tell your best friend, “Thanks for helping me live.”
