“Sometimes you want to protect someone who doesn’t care about you, while there’s another person who quietly protect you.”
That is true. I think most of us experience a one sided love or triangle love. You are protecting the one who doesn’t care about you while there is someone also protecting you and you never cared at all. Simply life is like that; it is because we don’t get always what we want. We cannot force someone to reciprocate our feelings too.
No matter what, it is not a mistake if you like to protect someone you love because that is love; to be compassionate, to be selfless and to give way.
