Unrequited love can be extremely difficult to deal with.
I know this for sure since I have been on the receiving end
of an unrequited love experience.
It is an extremely sinking feeling
that can even make you want to kill yourself.
It doesn’t matter if there are others who care about you or love you.
But if the person whom you love the most doesn’t love you back,
then it can make you feel like a loser.
It is surely a depressing experience.
Dealing With a Breakup Is Easier
Unrequited love is much more difficult to deal with than a breakup.
With a breakup or divorce, there is at least some chance
of getting back with your partner
since you know something about the person
since you have been in a relationship with that person before.
If you really want to get back in a relationship with the person,
it only needs some changes on your side
which only need some willpower
and changes to your stubborn mindset.
But with unrequited love, there are very little chances
of this happening.
Each Day Brings Pain
After being rejected by the person whom you love,
it would become extremely difficult to pass each day.
Whatever you do would feel tough and pointless,
which is the exact opposite of what could happen
when your love is accepted and returned.
Heart Doesn’t Know Logic
Some of your friends may try to console you
asking you to focus on the practical and more logical in life
since getting caught in such an emotional problem can be detrimental.
Even though the mind can understand logic, the heart cannot.
If you are in love, you would listen to your heart more than your mind.
Young People Are More Immune Than Old People
It is thought that unrequited love can hurt a person when he is young.
And as the person grows older,
he would be better equipped to deal with such feelings
and wouldn’t hurt so much.
But this is completely untrue.
Experiencing unrequited love at an older age can hurt more.
When you are young, you have lots of things going on around you
which can distract you from negative feelings.
And it is easier to find another person
which can be very difficult when you become old.
As you grow older, your heart doesn’t get any stronger.
Actually, it can get much weaker with age.
With unrequited love, it is not easy to suppress your feelings.
You can’t really talk about your feelings much to the person you love
because she won’t even listen to you.
She is not at all interested in you and wouldn’t care about how you feel.
So the best way to deal with your feelings is not showing anger.
Rather, you need to be more positive in your outlook
and try to keep yourself busy.
I know it is a clichéd advice and is easier said than done,
but it is the only way to overcome your feelings.
