The majority of the people I have encountered do not want to be in love, they just want to be loved. Selfishly they talk about how they want someone to love them for who they are. Yet, they don’t really love who they are, and if you don’t love yourself then how can you love another. Or on the other hand, the only thing they do love is themselves. Either their selfishness is obvious.
Then you have those who never take accoutability for their ways. You’ll hear them say, “I don’t trust anybody”. The truth is they don’t trust themselves, but instead of admitting it they blame others. They always deflect. It’s always an excuse.
