You Should Fall For Someone Who Doesn’t Love You

This has to be more than a crush, more than just a fleeting attraction.”

_inGRAdible: Couldn’t agree more! Yes, I am insanely in love with SOMEONE who doesn’t love me. Do I have regrets? No! Unrequited love, one-way love, or whatever you call it… though THIS PERSON WILL NEVER LOVE ME BACK, my heart will never stop beating for him! This obsession has been driving me crazy for more than 3 years! But who cares, I just can’t stop loving… hoping… dreaming… that someday, this crazy love will be paid off! I don’t mind his preference. I don’t mind him knowing that I am head over heels for him. Yes, he is both my sanity and insanity!

Let the agony, the obsession,consume you. Nothing hurts quite as exquisitely as loving someone who doesn’t love you back.”

_inGRAdible: Errrr. I’m crazy, infatuated, and obsessed. I like you. I love you. When will I stop being in love with you?

Getting over unrequited love feels like having a blindfold removed – you suddenly see all the love you’ve had in your life this whole time, and you’ll appreciate those individuals like never before. You will be humbled, you will be grateful, you will be wiser.

Here’s the best part, though, about getting over someone who doesn’t love you: you realize that nobody healed your heartache, that you were able to fix yourself all on your own. And once you’ve proven to yourself that you can recover from that, you won’t be afraid to go looking for love again.

And again, and again and again.

And one of those times, you’re bound to be rewarded with someone who reciprocates every ounce of your unbridled affection, who loves you just as much as you love them, and that will be the most supreme feeling of ecstasy you can fathom. You’ll see that loving someone who didn’t love you back was totally worth it.

_inGRAdible: Yes, the realization already struck me…that HE CAN NEVER LOVE someone like me. Not until the right person comes, I’ll slowly let my love for him fade away.. .

Thought Catalog

It occurred to me the other day that there might be people in this world who have never known unrequited love, have never fallen for someone who didn’t fall too.

I know it’s rarer than a solar eclipse, but it seems likely that some have managed it; people who married their high school sweetheart, who got it right on the first try, who were seemingly born with enough innate confidence to walk right up to the object of their affection and say, “I think you’re great, would you like to go on a date sometime” and whose confidence was rewarded with a resolute, “Absolutely, I’d love to” and a Happily Ever After. The rest of us would be inclined to murder a couple like this if we ever came across them, but I maintain that they are the ones who are missing out. Everyone should fall for someone who doesn’t…

“Hangga’t may lakas, may bukas.”

“Kung may isang bagay akong natutunan ngayong araw, ito ay kung gaano magparikit ng baga at mag-ihaw.

Laksa-laksang pawis ang inabot ko kanina. Bawat paypay, umaasang magbabaga rin ang uling. Nakakangawit. -‘yan ang una kong nasabi. Pero habang tumatagal, nasanay na rin ang aking braso. Naging manhid sa pagod, nabugbog sa hirap.

Habang unti-unting naluluto ang nakasalang, biglang sumagi sa aking isipan ang isang bagay: sa susunod ko kayang paypay ay dadalhin na ng hangin ang aking lumbay? Tulad ba ng uling na nagngangalit sa apoy, muli kayang magbabaga ang aming pagtitinginan? O tulad ng gamit nang uling, mauuwi sa abo at ala-ala ang istorya naming dalawa?

Tulad ng pagbabaga, hindi naman natin malalaman ang kasagutan kung hindi natin susubukan. Sa ngayon, magkakasya muna ako sa isang bagay na alam ko, sa realidad na hangga’t kaya kong pumaypay, hangga’t kaya kong mag-intay, may pag-asa pa ang buhay. Hangga’t may lakas, may bukas.”
