(Not?) Loving Someone

 moosemattie (@moosemattie) 7 years, 10 months ago

I’m sure most of us have heard something along the lines of this before. Your significant other just ended your relationship and your closest friends tell you, “He/she’s not worth it if they couldn’t love you the way you love him/her.”

Do you believe that this is true? Can someone be a really, truly good person and just not feel the same way about someone else, so they end things? On the flipside, what does that say about that person–when they didn’t love someone special who loved them?

What are your experiences with this? If a truly good person loves someone but is not loved back, what does that say about the second person? I don’t know if it’ll help anyone answer, but I may or may not be referencing someone other than myself.

For me, it’s the little head overiding the big head. Unless it’s mutual…then the sky will light up.

Truly good persons don’t deserve to be loved, because they don’t exist.

I think what your friend meant is it is not worth pursuing that person because they weren’t into you as much as you were into them, as in don’t go on any longer wasting your feelings and love towards someone not reciprocating it. Loving someone is not an obligation or a must. How does ending things when you dont feel the same about someone that loves you make someone not a good person? If anything, that’s the best they can do – not pretend and play along that they care. Put yourself in their shoes.

@paintedbeings, That’s basically my opinion on it as well. I’ve been having a lot of mixed feelings lately about both sides, and how it feels for both people.
