Don’t Waste Yourself Loving Someone From Afar: You Deserve The Real Thing

We’ve all fallen in love with the wrong person at some point in our lives.

We’ve all felt what is like to love someone deeply and share our innermost feelings with them, but not get anything in return. The sad truth is, we’ve all experienced unreciprocated love.

 Some of us have learned from their mistakes, and some are still busy making them and giving out second chances thinking that the more they invest in that person, the more likely it is that one day, this person will give them what they need.

Well, I am sorry if what I am about to say breaks your heart or disappoints you, but unreciprocated love is something that you must let go of. And the sooner, the better. Loving someone from afar who doesn’t love you back is the worst feeling in life. Continuing to allow people in your life that constantly lie to you, make you feel like you are not enough, question your love and hurt you is the most toxic, masochistic decision that you can make in your life.

If this person doesn’t care for you the way you care for them now, they will never care for you.

You have to understand that.

If someone doesn’t share the same feelings that you do, that’s a sign that there’s nothing else you can do but move on. No matter how much you love them, no matter how strong your feelings are and no matter how difficult moving on seems. You pick yourself up, swallow your tears, pack your bags and hit the road. Staying in that ‘relationship’ and going out on a limb with your feelings will only hurt you more. You’ll rely on your hope that someday, this person you love so much will finally change and see you for who you really are. And they will fall in love with you. And then, when things don’t go according to plan and they hurt you, you will fall on your knees and curse the day you let them into your life… You will blame them for hurting you, while deep down you’ll know that it was you who really hurt yourself.

Not so romantic now, huh?

Well, that’s what is most likely to happen.

So, please. Save yourself from the unnecessary heartache and just move on.

You deserve more than you know.

 Don’t waste yourself loving a person from afar. Don’t give yourself to someone who cannot see your worth hoping that one day they probably will. People like these will never see the real you. They will never magically transform into someone that loves you and cherishes you.

You deserve the real thing.
