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

Published on January 6, 2015 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day

“No matter how bad it hurts or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can’t keep shedding tears over someone who doesn’t deserve the love you gave. You can’t keep feeling sorry for yourself and thinking if only you did more. You can’t make them want the relationship because if they wanted they wouldn’t have let go of you. You deserve better now. You deserve someone who appreciates you and who won’t play with your delicate heart.. Just like a cut on your hand will take time to heal, your broken heart needs time to heal as well. That’s not the end of your life. You will get over that pain you’re having right now and one day you’ll be happy again.” ~Orebela Gbenga

    Real love that a real person feels is NEVER that simply or easy. I feel sorry for the one who wrote this..If/when I choose to “get over it” will be on my terms and not a moment sooner. Tears are good for the soul, they help cleanse it. There is both good and bad that comes with loving someone regardless if they feel that way in return.. That is the true risk we take in loving someone, and I will not ever stop loving someone just because the love wasn’t returned in a way in which I expected. To whomever writes these posts above just getting over it and move on…show some compassion! People are hurting and they look to these for simple reminders that they are not alone in their pain, a healthy does of spirituality and humanity could go along with it. Amen and God Bless.

    Let me ask myself a question…was I sure of the devotion of that person? The question is surely a big NO. So why blame the other party instead of blaming myself? Treacherous people are not hard to pick, teachery is their innate nature, so before allowing the tree of love to grow, one should be totally comfortable with the loyality of the other side, if not cut it from the start. Being good hearted doesn’t mean being easy to be deceived.

    This is for asfoura…what you say may seem true and logical but the last time I checked love follows neither rules of man. It is reaction by either conscience or an unconscience choice than loyality holds no sway over. Love does not mean loyality and I have confused either. This maybe where the termed “unconditional” love came from…it is given freely asking for nothing in return.

    Sorry for the typo, but that is I have NOT confused either. Thank you

    I can agree that the first flame of love is spontaneous and follows no rules, it is very beautiful sublime feeling where we wish to freeze the moment and keep it forever. But the proceedings following the beautiful storm will start to show us the kind of partener we are dealin with…so that we can decide from our deep feelings whether to keep the tree growing or not.

    I know parables…do you? Please don’t lector me on how I need to react now. My choice was made and I don’t plan on changing it with the truth. I also don’t owe an explanation to anyone least of all here for my decision either. Have a blessed evening amen. I will be done responding now. I have said all that I needed to say. I know love, having loved and lost before in my life thank you.

    Yes, just to love oneself may be the solution.

    This is how I feel. My cut on my heart is taking longer than I thought. I stayed away from relationships for 12yrs. I thought I found a gentle soul and tried to share my life with. I work 6days week. He cheated, been telling the knew girl(10 yrs younger who thinks she knows everything). Yes I am a giver but trust me silence doesn’t mean stupid. I will learn and move on, in my own good time. Karma will take care the rest. Peace!
