Sometimes, the truth can really hurt.
To know that you have poured so much love & effort into someone, and all for naught ...
To have loved and lost is one thing - love without acknowledgement is another.
That truth hurts, however, I will not cease to give or give up on others. My capacity for love far outweighs the negative. I still believe in people. And I still believe love can make a difference.
"I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you ..."
