Stop calling people who don’t call you. Stop visiting people who don’t know where you live. Stop making time for people who don’t have time for you. Stop spending on people who don’t spend on you. Stop thinking about people who don’t think about you. You will make yourself emotionally bankrupt.
You can love someone from a distance and wish them well.. and I’m not just talking about romantic relationships but all relationships; friends, family, boyfriends. Take how people treat you as a cue and stop exerting yourself and giving love where it’s neither returned or appreciated. Life is difficult enough without having to beg people for their love and attention. The least you can do for yourself is to surround yourself with people who genuinely love and care about you. And most importantly, surround yourself with people that don’t see you as an option. There’s nothing worse than people who treat you like you’re replaceable. Life can be short or long depending on how you live it.
