This quote has been popping up a lot lately. Despite how at a first glance this conveys only the best intentions, I can’t help but be uncomfortable with it. If you interpret this to only apply in scenarios where feelings are entirely mutual, then maybe it’s fine. However, When I read it, I only see the very risky attitude it is encouraging.
Things like this sound beautiful on paper. But when you actually put them into the real world, they aren’t always good. To me this is saying that you should pay attention to and actively engage with people who love you because if they care, then you owe it to them. And here’s the thing. I don’t care how much someone loves you, cares about you or misses you. You are never obligated to love or keep someone in your life just because they want you.
