There has been many experiences in my small life where in I have had the inclination to give attention and respect to someone else (male/female) and i have felt that the other person is not aware (or) does not share the same amount of attention and respect back to me. This situation has always made me wonder about what should I be doing. Should I start ignoring the concerned person and withdraw myself to my own cocoon (or) continue showering the same amount of attention.
If i start ignoring the concerned person, am i deceiving myself by leaving the pleasures that i am getting out of his/her company. Is this the right thing to do (or) shower the same attention & respect knowing very well that it may not be reciprocated? It is a dillemma i face many a times and i really don't know how to respond or grow in this type of situation.
I end up learing the harder way i.e. get hurt emotionally. Thankfully, i am a type of person who is jolly enough to rebound whatever be the adverse situations. That does help. But i have noticed that once you grow older your patience starts to wear thin and the rebounding power also diminishes, leaving you scarred for absolutely nothing important. funny ain't it?
