Let’s defeat hostility with love
I am sure it is possible. It’s not always the case but still… If a deeper and more intense love has come into life of your beloved, I’m afraid there is no hope to get him/her back. After all, one should be noble and generous. You know, true love ‘does not seek its own` (1 Corinthians 13, 5). True love wishes happiness to the one we love, even if it is with another person. However, if the feelings were not replaced with a deeper love but have only waned down, one should struggle for their recovery.
The question is HOW? My answer may seem surprising at first glance. What does a girl do when she wants to gain someone’s attention? She beautifies herself! So, let your soul do the same. The more beautiful and pure your soul is the more chances there are to get back your love. Even if it didn’t happen, your efforts won’t be useless. Gaining an inner beauty is worthwhile in itself.
Besides, here everything depends on why the one you loved and still love does not love you anymore? If he or she has found something in you that pushed him away, it would make sense to find out what that was in order to eliminate it. Trying to win the affection of your beloved is very worthy and fascinating affair but it should be done correctly. Don’t plead, don’t cry for love, don’t beg or blame or threaten and don’t go into hysterics as people often do but try to be better and nicer. At this point I would like to paraphrase Saint Paul the Apostle who said perhaps the most outstanding words ever, ‘Be not overcome by evil but overcome evil with good.` (Romans 12: 21). I would say, let us overcome hostility with love.
