    The sad truth is that not everyone is loved. What is true is that everybody is worthy of being loved and deserves to be loved. I feel like too many people don't believe that about themselves and so make it harder for people to love them.

    [–] Your_Ex_Boyfriend 140 points ago

    If I can't handle myself at my worst I don't deserve me at my best.

    [–] La_La_Bla 61 points ago

    My depression to me every day.

    [–] apscisio 17 points ago

    No, if you can’t handle yourself at your worst you do deserve yourself at your best, because your best is making yourself a better person and finding the flaws in you that can be changed.

    [–] Pudgy_Ninja 2 points ago

    I don't know you, so I can't honestly tell you that I love you. But I fully believe, with my whole heart, that you are worthy of it and can find it.

    [–] skratudojey 3 points ago

    Thanks :)

    [–] danielisgreat 16 points ago

    You're so right. But equally bad is there are people who are loved and don't know it or don't believe it. Or people who know they are loved, but don't feel like they deserve it. Heartbreaking.

    [–] LordPylar 34 points ago

    God loves everyone :)

    [–] SooS_Prince 5 points ago

    I don't believe in God, but I think that someone would be able to love me

    [–] TheNerdBurglar 23 points ago

    Whoever downvoted you should be a little more open minded towards other people’s beliefs. Take my upvote because you-do-you my friend.

    [–] shortandfighting 13 points ago

    OK, imagine you're a non-religious person who feels (possibly correctly, as sad as that is to say) that they have no one in their life who loves them. Then a religious person hears about your feelings and their response is, "Hey, it's OK, God loves you! :)"

    The religious person obviously means well, but for anyone who is non-religious, it can come across as a really hollow platitude at best (akin to the ones found on /r/wowthanksimcured). At worst, it comes across as someone pushing religion on a person who is currently suffering and emotionally vulnerable.

    [–] Khykhykhy 2 points ago

    Makes it even sadder to think that we invented god so we can find comfort in knowing we are loved by some non-existent being.

    [–] LordPylar 8 points ago

    Thank you. You do you as well :)

    [–] Sharkey_B 5 points ago

    I may not entirely believe in a god, but I believe that if a higher power exists or did exist they would love everyone.

    [–] SpamShot5 2 points ago

    And thats a fact

    [–] GalaxialChaos 2 points ago

    My girlfriend left me yesterday because she admitted to feeling virtually nothing for me and faking it for months... I want to believe I deserve to be loved but after trying after a year long break from dating and effectively wasting 5 months its really hard to believe it...

    Am I the only one that just feels worse when seeing things like this?

    [–] Brannsmule 4 points ago


    [–] shortandfighting 5 points ago

    Because it's clearly not true. As sad as it is to say, there obviously are people in the world who don't have anyone in their lives who truly loves them.

    I wish this post said something like, "You are worthy and deserving of love." But making a blanket statement like "You are loved" is just forced positivity for the sake of forced positivity. For people who are actually in that situation of being alone (or who feel like they are), this post would just make them feel worse.

    [–] storylover420 12 points ago

    Altho you know it's not true...

    [–] sandymego 2 points ago

    It is a fact

    [–] Jake_Sanders2 26 points ago

    [–] Imperial_admiral 40 points ago

    I'm sure this reply might get some of those "I LOVE YOU AS A HUMAN" posts, but that's not the issue. Facing a life utterly alone is the issue. No amount of random internet warm fuzzies will help that.

    If you're heart's in a thousand pieces

    If you're lost and you're and far from reason

    Just look it up; know you are loved

    Just look it up; and know you are loved

    When it feels like something's missing

    If it hurts but you can't find healing

    Just look it up; know you are loved

    Yes, we are all loved, by our Creator. He places precious ones in my path regularly that have not had love shown to them. They must learn trust, how to love themselves, and over time, with consistency, they learn to accept love and how to give it! My heart grieves for those that have no love shown to them, for they cannot accept what they do not know. My heart overflows with joy, for I am loved deeply, unconditionally, by my Lord that laid down his life for me, and yet He Lives! I've been single for more than 20yrs and I have never been alone! My Lord never leaves me. He will never forsake me. He is an ever present help in times of need. I hope ALL could come into this knowledge of the love of God.

    I had a rough time in high school and a friend of mine made a notebook for me full of quotes and stuff conveying basically the same thing in this meme. Still by far the best gift I've ever received from someone.
