Have you ever found yourself pouring love and energy into someone only to feel like it’s being dumped into an endless pit of ingratitude? Do you give your time, energy, concern, and heart to people who do not appreciate it at all? Do you give it to those who are hot and cold, namely those who snuggle up to you when they want your attention and energy and expect you to be there for them in that moment…and then for no reason suddenly avoid you at all costs, all the while expecting you to be there, just waiting to pour your heart and love into them once again, when they eventually return seeking it…as though they deserved it and you owed it to them?
We are taught that we should be loveful and kind to everyone, and while this is indeed a positive and light-filled way to live one’s life, we must be careful to not enable abusers and users…in any regard, let alone at our own expense. People who do not appreciate your love would likely learn a great and valuable lesson in their soul’s evolution if they suddenly found themselves without it…and potentially with no hopes of ever getting to experience it ever again. Yet if you are always there ready to give it to them willingly at all costs, anytime, anywhere, what is their motivation to treasure this generous gift you share? What is their motivation to evolve and recognize and cherish love when it comes? None. If your love is not, or cannot, be reciprocated by certain individuals, consider sharing it instead with those who would appreciate it and treasure it…and give it back. You might find yourself uplifted in knowing your energy actually added value and beauty to the universe, not to mention your own life as well.
Consider if you have people in your life who take your energy, give little or nothing back, and/or expect you to always be waiting on the side lines to provide love and support if/when they decide they need it or want it again. Consider holding that energy for yourself…and waiting until you find someone who will value it, appreciate it, and put it to better use. And then give it to that individual instead. It might not even be a person that you give it to. It might be an animal or one of the universe’s many other deserving creatures or creations of nature. You might discover that the love and energy you were wasting on even just one person might be enough to uplift 10 others. Be empowered. Love yourself enough. Your energy and love are vital forces of nature. Don’t waste them where they are not appreciated as this will only deplete you. Share them where they are valued, and watch them grow into something bigger. Life moves in a circle. Always follow the love, and the love will follow you…
Much love and blessings,
