All’s fair in love and war. It might not seem fair, but it is. There is no law that says your love for another has to be returned. There’s no law that the kindness you show to another has to be shown to you. We can hope that our love and kindness is returned to us, but when it isn’t we must able to recognize it and let go. If you’ve been getting signals from another that they don’t value you in the same way you value them, in whatever capacity that might be, then let them go. Stop forcing it. Stop pushing for something that you know won’t work. You are valued, so why waste your time with this.
