Love is definitely not what we see in movies, and it isn’t a fairy tale where your prince will always be there to rescue you or your princess will be waiting for you and will love you every second of their life. This is life, and life has its harsh realities as well. Love is not at all simple, and you must be well aware of it before you start a relationship. Some people have their luck with love whereas others just learn a lesson from their bad experience. If you, unfortunately, had a bad experience or even several bad experiences with love then this does not mean you should give up on the whole idea of love. Love itself is a very beautiful feeling, and everyone should have a partner in their lives who loves them unconditionally. Here are some important things that you should consider before thinking of giving up on love forever:
#1 You are not alone
It is not just you who is feeling this way; there are thousands of people in the world crying over lost love and hurtful relationships. Probably, everyone at that time would be thinking the same thing – that they should give up on love. But this doesn’t mean you can’t get it right the next time. There is definitely someone who is perfect for you, and it is only a matter of time before you find them.
#2 Love doesn’t happen right away
You should stop comparing your life with the life you see in movies. Love is not magic, and it certainly doesn’t happen in a week. Sometimes, it may take years for someone to find their perfect match and therefore you should be patient with all this.
#3 You might be too picky
There may be a chance that you, yourself have made the situation really complex. We all want perfect life partners, but that doesn’t mean we should set unrealistic standards and then try to find love that will fulfill all these expectations. When we set extremely high standards then no matter how nice, sweet and loving the other person is, we will still find some negatives about them. You need to be more open minded for different types of individuals who love you and do things to make you feel special.
#4 You are not dating the right kinds of people
You might think that you made the right decision, but what if every time you end up with the wrong person. Maybe every time the person that you start a relationship with is not caring, loving or not your type.
#5 There is nothing wrong with being single
Being single is a good feeling! In fact, you should try to give yourself some time and invest in your own self. When you actually do spend some time alone and be happy with what you have, that will eventually direct you to true love.
#6 You will be really lonely
Love is companionship, and every person in the world needs someone to share their life with. If you give up on love, then this means that you have decided to spend your life alone. That will not be healthy for you because a time may come when you start getting depressed, and the need for companionship will leave you in great misery.
