Ah! It’s been awhile.
Let’s just say that “adulting” took an interesting turn this past few weeks. So, I’m back once again writing freely! (Sort of)
However, I’m not here to bore you with specific details about my life. With that said, I am writing this post not to play like a Love Guru or some sort but merely just to express my stand (or stands) on unrequited love (romantic love) (dating phase kinda-love).
Unrequited love or one-sided love is love that is not openly reciprocated or understood as such by the beloved. Speaking based on my experience and hearing from friends experiences, unreturned love can be correlate with frustrated love. If you don’t agree with it then you can stop reading this.
I’ll explain this by asking , How could you tell if he/she is really interested with you? If you negate all your efforts from the equation, would a good communication still exist between you two? Well, if there is nothing then you deserve better.
Accepting such will hurt but believe me it will be your saving grace. It may be incredibly painful due to high voltage of expectations and the magical wonders of dreaming and wishing but eventually you will come out of it victorious and stronger.
You’ll learn the importance of time by not foolishly investing your emotions. That being single and whole is way much better than being broken with someone. Unrequited love can also make you more creative, the possibility of being in love and the self-destructive feeling can give you an extra energy on which you can channel into writing. Thus, under the right circumstances, unrequited love can be good.
After the wake of that romantic rejection, you can slowly shift towards the “joy” of gaining self-respect (self-love).
I am not telling you to be selfish. I am telling you to be happy. To always choose happiness.
