To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on September 2, 2014 in Picture Quotes

When I give, it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I’m genuine. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored. To speak and not be heard. To care for and have nothing returned. When I give it’s because I get it. It’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart and I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that. But when things start being taken for granted. When you no longer appreciate my sincerity. I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful. I’ll just get smart and I’ll change your role in my life. Because when I give, I’m all in. But when I’m done, there’s no looking back.

    I am not sure if everyone truly understands the meaning of this quote. I know I am one who has recently learned the entire meaning behind this. If you don’t always know what words your using, then you really shouldn’t use them. Know what you’re saying or what you are trying to get across to the other person before it’s too late! Not every person thinks alike, not every person believes what you do, and not every person truly understands the meaning behind your words.

    Exactly describes my experience. But all the more sad that it happened with closest family, and her lack of uderstanding has distanced us irreverseably.

    When i give, it is my values, my way of being happy, satisfying my affectionate self and my capacity…… What others do is their mental make up let them be busy with their strategies of life… i can not ask anything

    I’ve been lied to, cheated on and who knows what else. We split….no longer b-fd and g-fd. So we tried being good friends and he started seeing someone else right after. Well, we were supposedly good friends and then he lied to me-seen things for myself. No longer friends because true friends don’t lie to each other. I don’t like people that lie especially ones that are suppose to be true friends. It’s really sad for him because she won’t take care of him like I would have and he said that himself. His loss.
