When you love someone, you don’t let the romance fade away. You don’t treat a person like one of a kind during the puppy love stage and then neglect them once they are yours to keep. You don’t take them for granted ever. You don’t forget how lucky you are to have them.

Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in a relationship where you’re taken for granted.

When you love someone, you don’t love only when things are good. You don’t love only when it suits you or when you’re having a good day. You don’t love only when you’re happy or when everything is going right in your life. You don’t love someone only when no one else is around. That’s not right.

Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in a relationship where you’re loved only when someone is happy.

When you love someone, you don’t treat them poorly when things aren’t good. You don’t walk away when you see the person you are with has flaws and imperfections. You won’t just give up on love when you hit the first bump in the road and you don’t project your insecurities on someone else. You don’t do that in love.

Don’t allow yourself to be trapped in a relationship where you’re constantly made to feel bad about yourself.

Don’t allow yourself to tie yourself down to someone who treats you right only sometimes. Because you shouldn’t be treated right only sometimes. You shouldn’t be valued and appreciated and seen only sometimes. This hurts like hell. Withdrawing hurts like hell.

Having someone who is there for you only sometimes rips out your soul, piece by piece. Because you never know where you stand with that person, you never know if you have someone you can count on or not. And you feel alone more often than you should.

Don’t settle for someone who gives you just crumbs of love. Love should never be half-done, you know? Love is something you either do with your whole being or you don’t do at all. What’s the point of only loving sometimes? What’s the point in loving only good parts of a person?

What’s the point of having someone only when you’re not feeling bad? There isn’t one.

Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Everyone in this world should be loved right. Half-assed love isn’t loving right and is definitely less than you deserve. So don’t do it. Don’t waste your time on someone who loves you only sometimes. Don’t waste your time on someone whom you can’t count on. Don’t let someone who texts you only when he needs something and then ignores you when you need him get the best of you.

Always remember, there are too many mediocre things in life and love should never be one of them.
