I believe love does not stop; however, caring for someone can. Sometimes we put too much time and energy into people who do not appreciate it or reciprocate it. Some people push and push until we have to give in and acknowledge we can love that person but we cannot continue to revolve our world Round him/her.
Whether you call yourself "Smart or Wise": The Word of God counsels us: "To be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath( Get Even with others). Because man's wrath does not work out the Righteousness of God"( James 1:19-27)
