Marilyn Monroe is a perfect and well-known example of someone who is loved by many but never felt loved. Marilyn knew that many people loved her, fans, men, people she worked with, etc. But the people that meant the most to her she never felt their love. Marilyn never felt that her mother loved her and that was the most important relationship in her life, in any young women’s life. How can you feel you are worth being loved by others, if the person who is supposed to love you unconditionally doesn’t?
There are many people out there, celebrities and non, who are in this same situation everyday. Those on the outside never quite understand. The people on the outside see everyone loving you, supporting you, swarming around you, and they never get why you still aren’t happy. All of those other people who “love you” are just extra bonuses to those that matter most. But when you don’t have that, there is no bonus. You spend your time seeking out the love from family and significant others, and can’t even see that those you may not know or consider the closest to you really do have genuine feelings and love for you.
Embrace the love that you do have. You can’t dwell on those that don’t, you can’t force people to love you or even like you. The most important love is self-love, and when you love yourself and it shows, people around you can’t help but to love you as well. Keep the motto of if “they” don’t love/like you, its only their lose, because you are going to live your life to the fullest and embrace every opportunity.
Peace & Love
