We all know someone. Maybe a love prospect that was unrequited or maybe one that ended in heartbreak. Someone who is not in love. Maybe success is the utmost ambition for this person, and all else mere needs that are to be filled, by someone or another. Perhaps people are just tools in their eyes, or ladders, allowing them to reach what they need in that moment. Value is allotted to others depending on their present utility.
If you’re not loved back by someone like that, don’t let it get to you. Don’t take it personally. Especially because love is not something that can be artificially implanted into another’s soul. No one knows why it takes root in one, and not another. I believe it’s part of a divine plan. A mercy, a miracle that God distributes in very chosen, specific, and timely ways.
I also believe that no one escapes the bite of the lovebug forever. If not today, then one day… if not you, then someone, that person too will be bitten. Because that’s how love works. Love is not something that we obtain and then keep forever. It’s a trigger. A trigger that causes change and transformation in who we are. It’s a key that unlocks different versions of ourselves and takes us on journeys, both inward and outward. And no matter how far one runs away from it, it will catch up with everyone eventually. And when it does, love will hit that person harder than any of us.
