When Love is Not, or No Longer, Returned

"......the agony of loving more than you are loved can abate
if the source of its nourishment is quite cut off.
To persist deliberately in loving without return seems to me selfish and self-indulgent.
If someone you love tells you, in so many words, that you injure them by insisting on going on loving them,
isnít it purely loving, in the most generous sense, to try and curb yourself?
And then, are you to blame if, to some degree at least, the curbing works?"

Quote from 'The Men and the Girls' (1992), by Joanna Trollope.
