Don't Give Up on Love - Give It One More Try

Updated on May 17, 2013


One, two, three or a number of men and women probably find their own list of reasons to stop hoping to fall in love again. Maybe you’ve tried doing everything to the extent of falling on your knees to save a relationship, or have almost climbed to the top of the world’s tallest building ready to jump off; or could be that you have not thanked the person who have hurt you for the good times you have shared, causing the parting in so much pain, and thanks that you survived…whew!

Probably one of the worst things we can do is to live our lives from day to day as if we’re waiting for something or someone to happen. However, I’m not so sure if stopping the hopes to love again is something possible. Every human being longs an intimate relationship to give love and be loved. Denying this hope leads one to miss a lot of things.

The Joys of Attraction

Attraction is exciting. It brings glitters to the heart and mind. It's like some sort of invisible force that makes everything seems to feel good.

Everyone who comes in contact with our lives leaves a part of himself or herself in us. Just because someone hurt us deeply does not mean that no one in the world wants us or that we are not worthy to fall in love again. If we don’t recognize this beautiful opportunity, chances are we will have a very hard time freeing ourselves from being discouraged. We will end up missing opportunities in life and leaves us still feel lonely and alone.

The challenge is ... when a spark of it does come along, is to not run away. Are you interested in how attraction works?

The Possibility of One True Love

It's good news that no age, color or distance can get into the way to love again. Sometimes, as hard as we try to prevent it, true love just comes.

Many lovers who endure failed romances give up on ever finding true love. However, there's also truth that convincing ourselves to put focus and energy into the positive things will one day bring us to something spectacular with life. There’s this wisdom I read somewhere, “Don’t be like a fly in the bottle of wine who thinks it is the sweetest place in the world because it is the only place he has ever been.”

To love again is not easy. But if we do ever take a leap of faith, we have a better chance of seeing what true love really feels like. An open and hopeful heart makes all the difference for the broken lover who gives up on a chance to have a happy life again. The ABCs of Love shall help build it strong.

The Opportunity to Fight Defeat

The biggest work needed here is a clever and mature attitude to help teach the heart face and triumph over problems that were created in the past. Whatever they are, we know how we must find the courage to resolve them. It’s hard to admit, but an unteachable heart never learns and a closed one will never get to see this hope.

These high ethical standards will help us make it for a new love. This probably is also the strong basis why mature-minded couple are much more able to keep things going even though a thousand miles separate them.

As Martin Kipp of Daily Love strongly says, "After years of disappointment, heart break and unhappy endings, it can be very easy to close down on real love. No matter what, don’t’ let that happen!"

Have You Given Up on Love?

Love can make us do great things... it helps us change for the better. It makes us strong and in high spirits. It is beautiful. It makes us feel accepted and most all, valuable. When we fall in love, we feel the flutter of butterflies in the stomach, the world looks so much more beautiful, cheerful, pleasant and everything.

We probably cannot feel more than the joy of witnessing two people who are unconditionally in love with one another. But things like this don’t happen everyday, to everyone, and all the time -- they happen in God’s perfect timing.

Don't give up on love, it's worth one more try. God may only be preparing you for whomever you will one day love again that you both grow in relationship with Him. HE will show you how to love the one for you even when it’s hard.

Here's a Song to Make You Love Again - Yes... AGAIN!

      Oh Sue. I was in love once, and did not happen again...the second time I was confused... and though I'm still single at this age I too am not giving up. For one lovely heart as you, am sure there is a beautiful time for that. I keep asking myself - when could that time yet still, like you, am not giving up on it. Just makes things a lot more exciting, thrilling and you name it.

      Thank you for reading and sharing your heart. You're wonderful. and so happy to know you, really. Best wishes for you and me:=) A beautiful day to you too. -:=) Tonette

      Hello Lady. I hope that you are getting better :=). To love someone again or not love again is a decision that relies with each one of us. While romantic love can make a sweet lovelife, there are many different types of love, and many different people to love. What one person calls 'love' may be mere friendship to another. The LOVE of CHRIST is the best of all and the foundation of one true love.

      HE never breaks heart, HE repairs and heals any brokenness. It's the most perfect LOVE that the entire world is in dire need of, its the only LOVE that should become the base of any sort of loving. If HE wills that you love again, HE surely will send someone :=). Thank you for reading my hub and for leaving a comment that shares the LOVE of CHRIST. I pray for your complete recovery. Get well soon and GOD is always there. -Tonette

      Hmmm i guess this hub is for me because i myself have given up on love. LOVE is a wonderful thing though, right now i want to bathe in the LOVE of Christ in that way he will fill every void in my heart and soul and there won't be any yearning for love i'd know to sit back an wait on him and don't go looking, not that i do i say whatever will be will be i don't care too much of liking or loving anybody just like that i need God's will. Don't want to go back down the road of a broken heart.

      Thanks for sharing

      Hello teaches. I can't find words, you're so kind. Thank you again and again. If there's a feeling that can describe how grateful one can be to be among the bests, I feel that now. A Valentine gift, yes! More power and so nice knowing you. God bless you too.
