There is nothing romantic in waiting for someone who has left you, or in vowing to always be there for them no matter what.
With that, only comes a damaged sense of self-worth – putting someone else as a priority does not mean that your love for that person is all-encompassing. Rather, it means that you haven’t learnt to love yourself enough.
Irony comes, when this is the exact reason why that person will never return. Because they can never receive the love that they want from someone who has yet to show love to himself. And no matter how much love you pour into someone, it will never be enough if his heart is too broken to accept it.
