I've never denied being in love. I've never deliberately tried to convince myself to no longer love someone. Yes, I did love a person that consiously or subconsiously didn't love me back with as much passion as I did. Yes I physically, emotionally, and mentally gave myself to him so that instead he gave merely nothing in return. Yes this was the first man I had ever been intimate with. I was young, naïve, and passionately in love. Would I take it all back? Never. Never will I look back at this in regret for God doesn't put you through something you aren't able to handle and learn from. Some ask me why him and I reply why not? Everyone has the right to be loved for who they are no matter what. Everyone has the right to love risking to not be loved at all in return and that was my case. But I loved without expecting and not because I was dumb or young or whatever the case may have been but because that is how one should love; without expectations.
