Lack of reciprocation in love is like a one-sided conversation where you’re on the phone and one person does all the talking while the other person listens. How is that love? It’s selfish and indulgent on the part of the person doing all the talking. There is no REAL conversation. If there is no reciprocation, there is no love. And in my experience, people who know how to listen are secure and love themselves and people who won’t stop talking and need to offload are insecure and don’t love themselves. If you don’t love yourself, you’re not listening to yourself or anyone else so maybe start there. The people who keep listening to you obviously care about you but after a while, they’ll give up.
