We’ve all been in a position before when we find ourselves developing feelings for someone who does not match the level of devotion in return. It is normal to feel rejected and insecure during times like these, but there are ways to face the situation head on in order to sort it out sooner. Being honest with yourself about the reality of the situation is the first step, followed by coming to the realization that there is no option to bargain with someone when it comes to them potentially loving you.
- Unrequited love can release a complicated medley of emotions, including feels of insecurity, hurt, rejection and bafflement.
- The hardest and most important thing when someone doesn’t love you back is to defy your instincts and do nothing.
- People often engage in wishful thinking that if they were different in some way it would make the person love them, but this is the wrong way to think about it, and a very bad path to go down.
“You want to be with someone who loves you, and if someone doesn’t, move on.”
