Sometimes Love is simply acceptance and trying. You can love someone, know how they are and accept them, but they won’t do the same for you. You can try and attempt to understand someone, but they choose not to do the same for you.
You can love someone and not be in their life.
It’s not for lack of trying on your part, it’s just that you deserve to be who you are and do what you do and not be hindered by anyone, blood or not.
Love tries and accepts who you are and does not hinder or try to stop you from being you; and if there is someone or people in your life, blood or not, who choose not to truly love you, then let them go.
Not because of hate but because of love. You let go of them because you love them, you love them enough to let them be themselves. You just remove yourself from the general equation. You should not have to pretend, be someone else, and act like something you’re not just to keep the peace. It’s draining, tiring, and you don’t deserve that. Yes, sometimes you have to put up with crap, but you never have to put up with unnecessary crap that brings you down, no matter who it comes from. Still, be there for them when they need you.
Those who truly love you allow you to be you and live your life without holding you back. We all have our differences, but differences do not mean that we can’t love each other anyway. We can. It just takes mutual respect and understanding.
Accept the differences, Love anyway.
