Parts of me wanted to ask you to stay

If someone loves you enough

Parts of me wanted to ask you to stay. To keep fighting for me. To fight for us. But a certain ideology impeded me from doing so. The idea that when someone loves you enough, they will stay on their own, without you asking them to.

— Mirtha Michelle Castro, Letters, To The Men I Have Loved

If someone loves you enough, they will Stay.

Any effort less than that would imply that they don’t deserve to be there.

  1. DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDAMM
    THIS TOOOO TRUE
    IT REALLY SEEMS THAT THE PERSON THAT YOU WAS SOOOOO IN LOVE WITH AND YOU ASSUMED THEY FELT THE SAME WAY, COULD JUST NOT CARE ANYMORE.HOW IN THE HELL
    DOES.SOMEONE GO FROM TALKING TO YOU EVERDAY 4-5 times.TO NOTHING LIKE THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW YOU
    HOW,HOW CAN THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT,
    DO THEY MISS YOU,DO THEY THINK ABOUT YOU,DOES HE EVEN MISS YOUR SMILE-YOUR TOUCH-YOUR KISS-YOUR VOICE.DO THEY?

  2. Hmmm miscommunication 🙂 🙂 🙂 whatever 🙂 🙂 🙂 just love….with all your heart. If she or he leaves let them go if they comes back and stays its yours forever OK? Be sure of yourself too that you really cared..you seemed confuse to love her fully let her know you loved her and let her know you want her to stay be open with your feelings though sometimes silence separates the love in between be demonstrative show love not hide if:-) 🙂 🙂

  3. i agree, if somebody loves you enough, they will stay on their own,
    without you asking them to….but sometimes there are circumstances that arises which no one has control and we should understand deeply why people have to leave…leave, not because they don't love the person or doesn't care about the person. In such situation, Broad understanding, open communication & respect is needed…
    just saying

  4. Your ideals seems to be a bit of an egoistic term of ideology why you want her to fight alone? Isn't it wonderful to fight together ? For our love…if you don't fight for her she would think you never care and loved her in the first place. Why such an ideology of yours impedes your love towards her? Why not love her truly…love her in all honesty okkkkk why ideology will get in the way? I could not understand!!! sigh pride and egos will destroy a beautiful love story. Tsk…tsk…:-)

  5. same here…wish we will stay and stand by each other till the end of time…
    It's the love for each other that will keep two people holding on to make things work out their differences.
    Love yah!!!

  6. if someone loves you truely they will stay and stand by you through thick and thin…with their love for each other they will withstand any storms that may come along their journey. Therefore, that love must be nurture and keep it always protected with all the temptations in the world. Never allow doubt to set in…continue nurturing, protecting, believing and loving each other.

  7. If you are here you are here, if you are gone you are gone. You can fight for what you believe in or you can go with the flow. I know what I want and I know what I don't want and I will keep seeking til I find the place I belong and if there is someone waiting there will be love and if I find myself alone there will be love because a heart of love resides in me.

  8. In my own experiences, no one stays. Even those that love you, may get up and leave without a notice. I have hope that the saying 'if they truly love you they'll come back', as a grain a truth to it;
    I've dropped off the face of the earth and went silent myself more than once
