Love trumps convenience. If you love someone, be sure they love you as well. And REAL love can change a whole lot of things. There’s a saying in A.A. “Let us love you until you can love yourself.” And some people actually take that to heart. Because, behind virtually everyone with unrequited potential, is someone who doesn’t quite know how to master that potential. If you know how, show them. Love isn’t just about the good times- it’s also about the ‘growing times’. First, though, you need to define what you mean by ‘potential’. Potential for what? What’s your motivation? And using the word ‘loser’ isn’t a great way to qualify someone you once loved.
