Rotten To The Core

Love is a two-way street

By Saso ElsaiedPublished 27 days ago 3 min read

No matter what you do, people will not like you. This harsh reality is a difficult pill to swallow, but it is an unfortunate truth that many people experience at some point in their lives. No matter how kind, generous, or selfless you may be, there will always be someone who finds fault with you, criticizes you, or simply does not like you for reasons beyond your control.

The dark side of love manifests itself in the form of rejection, judgment, and criticism from others. It is a painful reminder that not everyone will appreciate or reciprocate the love and kindness that you offer. People may dislike you for reasons that have nothing to do with your character or actions – it could be jealousy, insecurity, or simply a difference in personalities.

"No matter what you offer people, they will not like it and will ask for more" is a universal truth when it comes to love. People often expect perfection from their partners, setting high standards that are impossible to meet. When you pour your heart and soul into a relationship, it can feel disheartening to realize that it is never enough for some people.

Love can be a double-edged sword, bringing both joy and heartache. You may shower your partner with affection, attention, and care, only to have them criticize you for not doing enough. It is exhausting to constantly try to meet someone else's unrealistic expectations and constantly feel like you are falling short.

Love is a beautiful and powerful emotion that can bring joy and fulfillment to our lives. But, like all things, there is a dark side to love that we must be aware of. One of the most common pitfalls we fall into in the name of love is giving people more than they deserve.

In our eagerness to please and show our affection for others, we often go above and beyond what is necessary or healthy in a relationship. We may sacrifice our own well-being, ignore red flags, or tolerate mistreatment all in the name of love. This is a dangerous pattern that can lead to heartache, resentment, and even abuse.

Love is a beautiful and powerful emotion that has the ability to bring us immense happiness and fulfillment. However, there is a darker side to love that we must be aware of in order to protect ourselves and our well-being. One of the most dangerous aspects of love is the tendency to put the needs and desires of others above our own.

Loving someone is a beautiful thing, but it should never come at the expense of our own happiness and well-being. When we consistently prioritize the needs of others over our own, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment, resentment, and even heartbreak. It is important to remember that self-love and self-care are essential for maintaining a healthy and balanced relationship with others.

It is often said that how you treat others is a reflection of your own character. This also holds true when it comes to love and relationships. If you believe in the concept of karma, then you understand that the energy you put out into the world will come back to you.

Love is a two-way street, and it requires mutual respect, trust, and kindness. The way you treat your partner sets the tone for the entire relationship. If you show them love, appreciation, and support, chances are they will reciprocate those feelings. However, if you mistreat them, belittle them, or take them for granted, you cannot expect them to continue loving you unconditionally.
