Sometimes we follow our hearts only to be met with something or someone who isn’t doing the same or does not feel the same and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it is hard to swallow. The people we care the most about sometimes do not feel the same way and well, that’s just a part of life.
When you are facing unrequited love, it can really tear you apart inside but please remember that this kind of thing is a great chance for personal growth and will help you figure out so much more about yourself as time passes. The people who refuse to choose you back are not people who are meant to be by your side and you shouldn’t be dwelling on them, even if moving on is hard. When the time is right, you will find someone who chooses you over and over again, as many times as you choose them.
While you might have been in love at one point sometimes feelings change and there isn’t much we can do about that. Life is not easy and things like this happen. Yes, a lot of people say love is supposed to last forever but the truth is not all love last a lifetime. Sometimes sparks fade, and we are left wondering where things went wrong.
You are strong and you will get through the heartache you’re feeling. I know, it’s not something you can do in the blink of an eye or overnight but it is something you’re capable of. You will move on and you will realize in time that the love you once felt for that person was not what you thought it was.
There is nothing wrong with you and it’s not that you weren’t enough for that person, you just weren’t the right one for them, or perhaps you two met at the wrong time in life. Everything that happens in this world happens for a reason and you will eventually understand that more properly. When one door closes another opens but you have to be willing to walk through that door.
Instead of choosing to obsess over and dwell on the love you’ve lost, choose your happiness, and move on within your own mind. Find something to focus on and allow yourself to heal. You deserve to be content in this world and until you love yourself, the love you want more than anything else will not be possible for you. Life is short and the more you spend wasting away yearning for someone who doesn’t want you back the less like yourself you will feel.
Sometimes people come into our lives and sweep us off of our feet only to remind us why we weren’t interested in love, to begin with. They tear our hearts out of our chests and leave us wishing we had never met them. This is just a part of life and while it sucks, it shapes us in ways we would not be able to accomplish otherwise.
Someday things will work out in your favor and the person your soul is screaming for will manifest before you. Do not give up just because all of your previous romances didn’t work out. The person who is meant to be with you for the rest of your life won’t walk away. Yes, unrequited love hurts but it sets us up for so much more down the road.
Take pride in who you are, where you are, and how far you’ve come. In time things will begin to make more sense. Just because you have to say goodbye to someone now doesn’t mean that in the future you will be lonely.
