Is it easier to love or be loved?
Easier for whom ? - From a purely selfish point of view it is better to be loved.
However, that soon becomes sterile and cannot be appreciated if you don't love back.
When you're in love the whole world is a better place, when you're loved your life is easier but it isn't as fulfilling and you have to fight the guilt of someone giving you so much time, attention, and effort and not really caring.
Unfortunately ,as it often happens - The love you take is not equal to the love you make.
Lots of people will take yours for granted easily
& I'm sorry if you had to ever go through it
Currently in the situation where I'm loving someone who can't (Not won't; big difference) love me back due to personal reasons that I won't go into.
But ...having said all that & also having Loved & lost.
I'd much rather be loved.
You feel much less lonely, and you finally feel wanted.In this cruel cruel lonely world ,in the middle of a lonely cold night - you wake up alone - but its okay ,its all right , you relax & smile happily -knowing somewhere ,someplace you are in someones mind & if you just give them a message they would rather stay up all night for you ,than sleep.
It's selfish to think about having someone chase after you and want you.
The feeling of knowing that you, YOU, light up their world.
You are their star in their life that lights up the darkness in their world.
They love you.
They care for you.
They smile when they see you on Skype because you're thousands of miles away from them.
Your laugh brings a smile to their face, almost to the point where their cheeks hurt.
They feel remorse when they hurt you.
When they miss a call from you, they feel sad, because hearing your voice is all they want.
And when you send a gift to them, all they do is glow.
They look at the gift and they just glow, hard.
You look at them happily & hug them , feeling like a star burning bright is in your arms ,your very own Warm happy Star that chose you among all other.
Love or be loved - I may not know you ,never have talked with you - But I wish you and everyone reading this, All my warmest wishes & fondest affection in finding your own slice of Happiness.
Stay Blessed ! ＼(￣▽￣)／
