Is it easier to love or to be loved?

Well this is a tough one, isn’t it? Talking about love, one of the most complex emotions we can feel. An emotion that can bring out the best and the worst in us at the same time. An emotion that can make you the happiest person in the world or can make you miserable or one of the most unbearable human beings to exist on the face of the Earth.


Almost everyone has probably experienced it in one form or the other.  Whether it was love for a friend, love for a family member, love for a partner, love for a pet, or whatever.

So, knowing what you know about love, what do you think is easier? Loving or being loved?

While I acknowledge that both cases have their own ups and downs, I personally think that being loved is actually the easier of the two. Why? Because then you are not doing any of the work. The love is coming from someone else and they are the ones who care about you, they are the ones who are thinking about you, and sometimes they are the ones who go out of their way to make you happy. What do you have to do? Nothing! All you need to do is actually be there, be yourself, and maybe talk to them sometimes. You’re just doing something that you would do all the time with anyone, but the person who loves you is completely satisfied with this; they might even be over the moon by this.

As someone who has had crushes before and has had nothing come from them, I know how bittersweet it can be. I really liked this person, and would try to make her happy as much as I could and would be really happy whenever she talked to me or smiled. But she didn’t feel the same way about me.

Loving someone can be bittersweet and has you doing everything, but being loved requires little to nothing from you i.e. the person being loved. That’s why I say being loved is much easier than loving someone.

Well that’s it for this post. I hope you like it and I hope you have a nice day ahead.
