Sometimes We Give Love To The Wrong Person

Sometimes we give love to the wrong person, and we sit there and wonder, “how could I have given love to that person? They don’t even deserve it,” or “what a waste of time.” But the thing is, you shouldn’t think about it that way. You should think of the fact that you were able to give love because if you are able to give it, that means you have it inside of you. It means that is what makes you. And it’s the same thing with everything else. It’s the same thing with kindness, with honesty, with your ability to care about people. That shows who you are. Don’t focus on the way that people abuse that. Don’t focus on the way that people react to that. Focus on the fact that you have it within you, and that it makes you who you are. It makes you a beautiful person, a beautiful human being. So, before you sit there and say, “I wish I didn’t give love”, “I wish I didn’t give kindness”, “I wish I wasn’t honest”, be careful what you’re wishing for.

  1. I didn’t go to her funeral because I literally just moved back to Whitby a few days before and I didn’t HAVE 10 DOLLARS and she hadn’t spoken to me in years. You’re the one with all the negative stories about her. I don’t have that many negative stories about her or anyone else so worry about your own fucking lives. smh.
