Love Cannot Be Wasted!

For a long time, I thought that the love that I dispensed to various people had been wasted. A kind word that was brushed off, trying to change myself to make a boyfriend not pursue other women, bending over backwards for a selfish friend, giving food to a hungry person.

If you don't get thanked, treated with respect, or even acknowledged, it can feel like a slap in the face. I tend to get cynical, thinking, why do I even try? It was this quote that made me realized that my love was not wasted:

"Love cannot be wasted. It makes no difference where it is
bestowed, it always brings in big returns."

Doing our best to love someone is not the problem. Even though some of these relationships were unhealthy, I believe that we get what we give out. That means that even though these people may not have deserved my love, I sent my love out into the Universe, and I will get it back. Maybe not immediately, or in the way we think it might, or even in the person we think it might, but our love will always be returned. Love yourself, and love others today.
