When it comes to love, everything else matters less
because love is everything already, the ultimate feeling.
But if you were given a choice, which one you prefer,
someone who loves you or someone you love?
It should be clear to everyone what the choices are.
The "someone who loves you" is the someone you don't love
and the "someone you love" is the someone who doesn't love you back.
It sounds like a pretty easy thing to do
but it's very hard to find a reason for choosing.
No matter what your choice will be,
defend it based on experience or anything else.
If I were to choose, I go for "someone I love"
because giving love is better than receiving it
and my love for that someone will be unconditional.
She doesn't have to love me back for I'm already happy that I love her.
This is what I consider true love -
loving someone even if that someone doesn't love you back.
Some may say that it's a one-sided love
and you'll just be hurt when you're not loved back.
But I should say that pure love is not expecting anything in return;
it always gives or shows itself away freely.
Take this everyday example.
You watch your favorite TV show and learn to love the artist
who portrays some character in the series.
You don't wanna miss each episode.
Every time you see the artist, your heart beats faster,
and the more you watch, the more you fall and the happier you become
even though the artist doesn't know you.
How excited you are to tell your family and friends
that you're falling in love with the artist
even though the artist have no idea you exist!
But your love is there without any doubt
and there's no way to call what you're feeling but love.
Or, you're falling for someone
and you know in your heart that someone is not gonna love you back
because you don't fit his/her standards.
But still you let your feelings show and don't deny it
because it makes you happy seeing him/her around.
You wish for one day he/she will feel the same way for you
but even if that will never ever happen,
you'll be content because you're already happy loving him/her already.
And that's true love; it doesn't need to be reciprocated.
The "someone who loves you" is the someone you don't love.
I will not choose that because the whole situation will just be pain and misery.
Imagine spending time with him/her alone at home or somewhere else.
Wouldn't you be annoyed with his/her presence?
You'd wish he/she would go away or love someone else but not you.
Just the thought of being near him/her makes you feel uncomfortable.
You think he's/she's not the one for you or you don't belong together
and the only thing you can offer is non other than friendship.
And every time he/she lets you feel his/her love,
you feel disgusted and start to avoid him/her the next time.
It will be like that the whole time.
He/She can't force you to love him/her even if he/she persists.
That would be all I can write about this matter.
