Failed love is nothing but misunderstood love. There is nothing called failed love. Love is the most successful thing that has ever been. Love do not fail, we fail. Not at loving but at interpreting the one we love. Often we make love suffer by the actions of the lover without knowing the exact intentions. Love is trust at its acme. When you love, you trust. There is no other possible way to keep it intact. You develop negative feelings for your lover when you think they aren’t doing what you expect them to do. The reasons you fathom can be entirely contrary to what you believe. They might be already suffering for failing you; maybe it’s not in their parameters to do what you want them to do. Everyone is made of different soil; you can’t expect everyone to grow your favorite pineapples. Some do grow avocados which may not be the thing you desire, but definitely better for you.
Getting the point?
Sometimes love is selfish. Most of the times it is. But, my darling, it’s supposed to be, isn’t it? When one is afraid to lose you to someone else(whoever in the world it may be), it’s called selfish. They want you to be all yours that is selfish. They want to stick around you that is selfish. Also, they are jealous when you care for someone else. That’s selfish. Then, tell me how is it love if not selfish? Love is weird. It’s not made up of all the good things. When people love you they are ought to be what they have never been. Sometimes a little wrong maybe but what you need to understand is that they love you and hence that. Instead of getting irritated of their traits, you should love them all the more for their intense love for you.
In all those books, they say all the beautiful things about love. Let’s all agree to it, love is not that at all. Love is not expecting, love is only giving, love is waiting for ages, love is this, love is that and bla bla bla. Love is not a single definition. It can't possibly be. Love has an entire different meaning for everyone who loves or is loved. Every other lover has a variation of love within himself/herself.
So, don’t judge other’s love with your definition. That’s where we all mess it up. Try to get their part of the story. It might turn out to be selfish. It might even be jealous love. It might me be a little more sentimental than you can handle. But it’s love and you are blessed with it. Penetrate into your lover’s love and you will see how there's no love better than that and how it can never fail you.
