Quintessential Truth #32 – Just A Four-Letter Word
Just because I follow you on Twitter doesn’t mean I Love You!
Love and respect are earned traits.
Love, a simple four letter word, and, for the most part these days that’s all it appears to be.
love – look it’s a frisbee
love – mutual respect
love – kinship
love – two people can share this common bond.
Where’s the love
Show the love
share the love
and on and on…….
We’ve often questioned the very word. One word that has a thousand reasons.
We’ve given up trying to figure it out. It’s becoming such a hollow word lately. Most people don’t often use the full term ” I Love you” anymore, I know I don’t. Instead, we’ve turned it into different variations such as ” love you” or “much love” basically out of respect, to me it means respect “much love and respect”.
I once had someone use it to get inside my head and my heart, only so they could manipulate me to do everything for them and lose myself in the process. Well, no more damn it, I’m over that shit as I will be willing to bet many of you are that have lived through this. We’re in a new mode now, will do what we want, when we want and if we don’t feel like doing anything here and there, so be it. We’re not going to apologize anymore, so take your little snickers and laughs and shove them right up the outgoing mail server, yep, that’s right, We just said that.
We’ve come to discover that sometimes people just come to expect things like it’s owed to them. When someone takes plain advantage of you, they are the ones who have to live with the fallout when you finally walk away. One thing an eye-opening experience will bring you is the realization that as far as your own personality goes, your inner voice will tell you, no-one created you, you are in debt to no-one for saving your life, or pulling you from your darkness. You did that on your own. People can aid you through your darkness but it is your on will that pulls you out. You are in control of your own destiny and no-one else.
Learn to accept yourself and others will too.
