I heard this saying for the first time today and it really hit me, I had never heard something so true, yet so daunting. The fact that we accept a person version of ‘love’, right or wrong, as we feel that we deserve it. Although this is not always true, I believe we put up with peoples love because we love them, not because we feel that’s what we deserve. There have been many times in my life where people have not treated me the way I deserve, but because of the way I felt for them, I accepted it, although I did not feel I deserved it. I am not saying that is the right thing to do, it took me a long time to grow up and realise that you need to love yourself the most. Therefore, I believe this saying is too straightforward. Love means something different for everybody, god knows I know not all of you will agree with this post. But I just needed to share the thoughts that have been going around my head today.
I just wanted to say, do not accept a version of love that does not make you happy, you all deserve the best kind. I myself have not felt love like they describe in the movies yet, but I know when it happens it would have been worth fighting for. Life is too short to except shit we don’t deserve, stand up for yourselves and love someone deeply who will love you back all the same.
