So often people feel hurt because someone doesn’t share what they feel… It doesn’t change your experience just because they aren’t in the same place. It doesn’t make your love less, if you love someone and they don’t love you back. Or, they don’t love you the same way. It doesn’t make the experience not real, or a lie, or a waste of time, or any different. Love is a gift, even if it is not reciprocated. Everything you experience is through your reality, your past, your filter. Somehow we believe if someone else shares it, exactly the same way, it will validate it. It is not true. Ideally we all yearn for someone to share our “whole” selves with, someone who can see what we see, but maybe that’s never going to happen (at least the way we yearn for). I am not so sure it’s possible, or is supposed to be possible. We each have a unique signature field of how we experience life, and not one of us is the same. So even though you may be sharing a moment with another, the other person may be having a completely different experience… this does not mean you do not deserve to be loved in the way you desire, it just means enjoy every experience you have, for you, for what it is. Don’t wait for someone to validate it.
