Quit Begging for LOVE!

Enough with the crying and constant begging for love from a person who clearly chooses not to give it. Quit begging for the attention. Quit begging for the admiration. Quit begging for the love and affection. Quit begging for the motivation. Quit begging for the validation. Quit begging for the praise, the hugs, the kisses, the walks, the smiles, the laughter, the sharing of past and present dreams, etc. All of that begging will lead you into depression, and keep you from realizing how truly amazing you already are (without the validation). It can also keep you from focusing on your goals and dreams for your life.

How do you beg you might ask? You beg when you constantly whine and complain, or in some cases, get upset, when your emotional or physical needs aren't being met. You beg when you allow that person to send you into depression because you don't feel attractive or wanted. You beg when you silently cry because you feel he/she doesn't love you. You beg when you act as if you are hurt or badly damaged every time you witness someone else getting the love and attention that you feel should be directed at you.

For example, you see your partner smiling and laughing with another person, and you instantly get upset because you don't experience that when the two of you are alone. Perhaps your loved one doesn't hold you close or shower you with compliments, so you respond with an attitude, or shut down completely and go into your little depression mode, hoping he/she will figure out what's wrong. I know… I've been there!

All of that behavior is a form of begging in my opinion. I know this because I became a master at begging for love. I mastered begging by forgetting to love myself, forgetting to compliment myself, forgetting to live my life, and by forgetting I was an amazing person because I was waiting on someone else to validate I was good enough to be loved.

Stop waiting for that other person to grab your hand, and motivate yourself by moving forth in your life and acknowledging that you are a dynamic, unique, beautiful, talented person (with or without the love or attention from another individual).

If you are in a dating relationship and experiencing these issues, I strongly suggest you move on with your life and make better choices. Please remember this: If you decide to marry that person who has continued to deny you love, affection and attention, it's your fault! You have a pretty good grasp of how that person treats you now, so don't expect much to change simply because a ring will be on your finger!

For those of you in a committed marriage, get your life together! Open your eyes and realize that 9 times out of 10, your loved one already knows your needs and desires. Sometimes your significant other may want to extend their love, and sometimes not. Therefore, getting upset, depressed, or dropping hints, will do you no good. In fact, the constant nagging simply makes you look desperate. Stop begging for love! Handle things differently by figuring out how to show love to yourself, and discover what voids you need to fulfill (mentally, physically, spiritually, etc).

Counseling isn't a bad thing, and I highly recommend this if both parties are open to it; however, if your loved one doesn't want counseling, I have some sound words of advice: Don't ever give someone control over how you feel about yourself, nor allow anyone to keep you from loving yourself or moving forth with your dreams!

I've seen many people get depressed, purposely not take care of themselves, and allow their goals in life to remain stagnant as a way of making their mate feel guilty for their pain and loneliness. Not only is it a pathetic step for a mature individual to take (I know, I've been there), but it is also destructive to your goals and your life!

Get your life back and STOP playing the victim role! Show love to the other person, but don't drain yourself to the point where you have no love left for yourself. You were not placed on this earth to beg for love or attention from anyone.

DREAM… even if you can't share it. LAUGH… even if your loved one won't join in. GROW… even if you must sprout without support. DANCE… even if you must waltz alone. LOVE… even if it isn't returned. Get your act together, put the tears aside, and remember, from this day forward, don't you EVER beg for love or attention from anyone but yourself!
