“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them. You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else, and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest and most painfully on your heart and soul. And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon
Loving someone unconditionally knowing that the person can never be yours is something that not everyone can do.
Showing efforts is not always showing love because loving someone is not an effort, it's a matter of showing what you really feel and how that person completes your life.
Loving someone doesn't mean you have to be together. Sometimes you just have to be friends and be contented with the connection that you both have.
