18 Jun When Love Has Nowhere To Go
One of the most important things in life is Love. Love is all we need as The Beatles put it. It is the reason we live, we do, we act and what keeps us going. Some of us show it, some of us say it, but there are many that find expressing love difficult. Some people show it in their everyday way of life and it is the little things that let you know they do. Yet many can’t manage to work up the courage and faith to show someone how they feel. It is like every one of us has a little child in us that is scared and wounded and has a fear of rejection. What if they don’t reciprocate? What if they say something? What if they say no? What takes a while to digest is that a no can be a redirection not a rejection. It isn’t personal even though it feels like it. It’s a hard thing to grasp as it has to do with your emotions and feelings. No one like to be hurt or disappointed. But if we don’t know how to handle such things how can we possibly learn? However what if the other person feels the same way but doesn’t know how to express it? Is that worse?
It looks easy when someone is into you and you both feel the same. Simple. But it can also be a back flip because what happens when that person is unable to show you the love you are so ready not only to receive but give in return? What do you do when your love has nowhere to go? It can be perhaps just as hurtful as a rejection. Some are just unable to find that leap of faith and that trust in themselves and the universe. There is something deep in them that wont allow them to jump. It is one of the worst self sabotage acts you can do for yourself and it stops you from truly living. It can be a truly amazing experience and one denies themselves because of fear. It sounds scary, and maybe it is but once you truly let go and love then you reach a part of yourself you never thought you had. It is a life’s blessing to be loved and to give love. It is a beautiful thing. So what does one do when there is a love that is not ready to receive it or give it? Give it to yourself. Nurture you. Your love for you is important so keep giving to yourself. Be like the person you want to treat you right. One day the time will come when someone will be ready and willing without hesitation to give it back and show you in many ways. Until then …..Keep walking.
