Been brought up as a princess, she only demanded same respect and nothing much from her prince. Sacrifices and compromises was then later taught to her by her love itself.
Kind, loving and understanding. She was all of these, already. What she was not is, she wasn’t silent, sincere, punctual, enthusiastic girl. To be precise, she wasn’t any stereotypic girl. Anyways, she had all the love for him, which she would have expected in return.
He was typical stereotypic guy, however. He demanded everything from her which she naturally wasn’t. To which she thought, any other guy out there will do the same to her. And so she fulfilled his almost every demand. And yeah, she did not demand anything from him much, besides, being loved and respected back. It was her understanding, may be, which made her think, his love is purest and greatest of all.
His demands were endless. His possession over her was like she is a thing. He demanded something more than love from her. Yes. It was lust. She failed to fulfill it. Not to have such kind of relationship yet, was her demand, which he was not willing to fulfill. He cheated on her. Later, when she discovered the truth, she was moved. He apologized. Apologized by touching her feet. She was again fool enough to forgive him.
Days passed, anyways. She met a new guy. He never demanded anything from her as a friend. He even never wanted to talk to her without her will. She found herself in him. They were emotionally attached.
And that is what love is, I feel. No one is wrong. No one is extra demanding. And no one is over-possessive, as such.
Everyone looks out for the other half, which best suits theirs. Which complement theirs!
We all have abundance of love within. We just need a love, which complement ours; not the one which replace ours.
We need echo of our love; not the another sound.
