Love is Love, Whether Reciprocated or Not



The best kind of love is that which is reciprocated. Who can argue that?

However, love is love, whether a person is loved back or not. I must admit I don't like the saying anymore that "it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all."

I would much rather be able to have someone to love that's going to stick around. However, we can't help who we love -- whether that person (or persons) loves us back or not. 

This pertains to romantic as well as non-romantic relationships, by the way. We all have to accept the fact that the people we try to show love to may not be able to give it to us (at least not in the same way) in return. Sometimes it just isn't going to happen so we have to love ourselves.
