My One And Only Rule On Love

You cannot make someone love you. The best you can do is make yourself someone who can be loved.

You can try. And if you do, you will fail. It's impossible. We can't help how we feel, for better or for worse. Or you can be open. Available. Understanding. Tender. Kind. And above all, be yourself.

 If that's not enough, then it's not love. You can choose to stay or go, but whatever you do, you can't force them to feel something they don't. And even if you could, why would you? Making someone love you is selfish, and selfish is the opposite of loving. It's like force feeding a baby, only it's not for their own good.

If that's what you want from someone, you're not in love, you're insecure (and in trouble).
