The one thing that's just as bad and sometimes worse than heartbreak is unrequited love.
Loving someone who does not love you
Loving someone who does not know you exist
Loving someone who once loved you but no longer does
Loving someone you would do anything for when that person is very oblivious to you.
Have you ever felt or endured the pain of unrequited love? Sometimes what burns the most is the intensity of the love you feel for someone who loves another, or someone who once loved you but no longer does and there's nothing you can say or do to make them love you again, sometimes it's deeply loving someone who leaves you eternally in the friend-zone.
I've experienced unrequited love. Some people who don't know what it means will tell you that you have no self-worth or low self-esteem. What they don't know is that these have nothing to do with love or the heart. The heart loves who it loves regardless of your sense of worth. And when this person whom the heart loves shuns it, it sometimes causes the heart to bleed.
The worst kind of unrequited love is love once requited. Seeing someone you've shared your body, secrets, moments, tears, laughter and love with, treat you like a stranger or even an enemy when you still love them so deeply. That's a devastating kind of love.
Have you ever experienced unrequited love, are you currently experiencing it? How do you deal with the rejection, the hurt and the unending disappointment?
