You cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

It's sometimes hard to let go of the idea that you can influence someone's love for you. Sometimes love and caring is not reciprocated, but all you can do is be yourself. The temptation is to try to be the person you think the other will find lovable - but even if you succeed in this deception, you will always know that they don't love *you* but only the image that you have created for them.

Greetings VirusHead :) Wow! Profoundly and sincerely said, Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.

It is often our own expectations that deceive us.

We often set unrealistic ideas of the person we should be, and a newly-discovered weakness often causes us pain because it jarringly conflicts with this idea. The first step in overcoming weaknesses is to lose these unrealistic ideas and accept yourself for who you are.

Embrace the real you - Be your authentic self, question and develop your own set of values and beliefs. Trust your heart and follow what resonates with you. When you do this wonderful things start to happen-but don't take my word for it ;)

Cheers & Hugs!
Christine :)

Hi Christine,
I have always felt that I should be myself in front of others and what comes my way is what I deserve. So far so good, being myself is being a caring person, and I have gained many caring friends. Forcing love will never work I learned at an early age. Thanks for sharing. I hope you got the last awards I posted for you on my blog.
Take Care,
Janet :)
