Unre-QUIT-ed II

Staying with someone who doesn’t love you because you love them.
Being okay with it because you think you have them, at least, but you don’t.

You have him or her but they’re not yours. You can touch them and pet them and feed them and kiss them but they’re not yours. All those things won’t make them yours. You know that quite well but you wish you didn’t. 

For some reason, for love reasons, holding on seems a lot easier than letting go. You know you’re treading on a futile, wrong path, but you’re not stopping. You’re lost. You have to stop and turn back. You can’t find the right path if you don’t stop.

It’s hard. It’s hard to quit this unrequited love…

  1. It took me a long time to let go of an unrequited love. Then I saw her on FB she had changed so much that now I wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole. There’s nothing quite like a dose of the cold water of reality to wake one up.

    • It’s the very worst feeling- the feeling you get when you find the strength to express how you feel about a person and you get turned down. It’s probably worse for a woman because the “conservative” society doesn’t really expect you to be making those declarations first in the first place, so you don’t appear cheap to the other person. I suffered for a lot of months, but it took me a day to never look back again. Everything I learnt is here- https://aderiounke.wordpress.com/2017/12/22/dont-live-in-denial/

      • I read that one it is well written. It took me a long time to realize that my feelings for her were not true love: they were a combination of feeling sorry for her and sexual attraction.
