People usually tell me that I'm too kind, too forgiving, and too docile, and that I have a big heart. I live in a world where I believe that there's always good in every person. I believe that there are people who have same heart as mine. I believe that kindness doesn't cost a single cent and there's nothing wrong with giving it away. I believe that forgiveness would set me free and sometimes people deserve second chances.
But after a series of heartbreaks, I was blaming God for making me a good person. I was crying every night, asking Him why I was given a big heart. All I did was become a good person, but all I got was a broken heart. I believe in karma, that if I do good, people would also do me good. I came to a point when I wanted to stop opening myself to others to avoid getting hurt and to become a bad person so people would not take me for granted. I convinced myself that people are mean, vengeful, rude, and manipulative. I questioned every person in my life — whether they really cared about me or if they were just using me.
After thinking things over, I decided to become the bigger person. I embraced my good heart and I did not let my painful experiences turn me into a bad person. People with good hearts are said to be the strongest people. We might have been hurt many times, but we continue loving. We don't give up and we continue opening up ourselves to others, hoping that we will find people who have the same hearts as ours and who can take care of our fragile hearts.
We are rare and unique. We deserve the best in our lives and we are meant for someone better. As a person with a golden heart, here are the reasons why we should not apologize for being good people and being the best lovers.
True love is the only love we know. When we love someone, we don't play around. We give our all, love without any conditions and we give love without asking for anything in return. We are selfless and prioritize the welfare of the person we love.
We seek the good in everyone. We always give the benefit of the doubt and we forgive even though we did not get the apologies we deserve. We make this world a better place to live in and we are living proof that kindness is not dead. We are the few blessed ones chosen to spread love and kindness to the people around us.
We change people for the better. We elevate the way people feel about themselves. We give the kind of love, respect, and attention that everyone deserves. We are the reason why people are hoping for a happy ever after, why people dream of a movie-like love story and why people believe in true love. People may have taken us for granted, but they will always remember what and how we made them feel.
It is true that it's difficult to have a big heart in a cruel world. But we are like diamonds and when we're found, anyone would be lucky to have us. It takes a special person to see our value and to keep us. If you are brokenhearted right now, take heart and don't be afraid of being who you are. Continue to spread happiness, positivity, love, and kindness. There are people out there who are looking out for us. Our best love stories are yet to be written.

the good thing about life is we get to have a lot of chance, chance to try something new, chance to fail and chance to try again, and from that either we don't try again or we move on and learn! i'm glad you learned new stuff about yourself and how to view things from a whole new perspective! cheers!

i like to view love on parents and older people, just seeing how they are to each other after all those time they've been with one another, i wonder how i'll be to someone in the long run, i know it's not going to be like the movies, but love requires work and dedication, if it's like the movies where we just love through our eyes, it might as well be over from the beginning
nice hub cheers!

There's far more to it.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
If you go to the grocery store to purchase an apple but buy an onion instead whose fault is that? Do you curse the onion for not being an apple? No!
You learn to become a "better shopper".
Anyone who is having one bad relationship after another probably needs to reexamine their mate selection process.
Nothing happens until we say: "Yes".
The only thing all of your failed relationships have in common is (you). When (we) change our circumstances change.
By this I do not mean stop being a loving person but rather learning to be "selective" and allowing people to earn or prove themselves worthy of your love (before) opening up.
Review your mate selection criteria and "must haves list". Have the courage/discipline to stick to (your) requirements.
Too often people pursue relationships without figuring out who they are let alone what they want or need in a mate.
They allow "impulsive connections" and "happenstance" to dictate their relationship choices.
It's the equivalent of going shopping without a list!
The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship that you do, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a mutual depth of love and desire or one another.
Compatibility trumps compromise.
In a world with over (7 Billion) people you're not the only one who has a loving heart and spirit. You simply have to learn to "screen out" those who don't before you emotionally invest in them.
By the way Karma is a myth!
No matter who you are or what you have done you're going to have good times and bad times. That's just life!
