Here’s Why Everybody Should Experience Unrequited Love At Least Once In Their Lives

You might have heard of those epic love stories that last a lifetime. We all read books and watch movies about how boy meets girl and how together they are able to win the entire world with love. Well, not every love story is like that. There are a few stories that take place in the same world we live in, silently without getting noticed by anyone.

It’s not the type of love that inspires poets to write about or the kind of self-love that makes people find contentment by being alone. Sometimes, love has a different face. It’s the kind of love that no one really talks about, and the one that gives the most unbearable kind of pain – unrequited love.

Yes, unrequited love is painful, but don’t all the great things in this world come with a price? It can be one of the most unforgettable and heart-wrenching emotion that you could have ever felt. But you know what? You need to experience it at least once in your life.

Because it will make you differentiate between infatuation and love

You will clearly remember your unrequited love for the rest of your life, which can never be said for a simple crush. It will make you understand the depth of love in the most unimaginable way.

Because it will make you selfless

You will just think of the one you love and how you can make them happy, even when their happiness means that you are not a part of it. It will make you perform random acts of kindness for them. You won’t even expect any kind of appreciation from them. You won’t do it to get their attention. You would do it because you love them.

Because it is painful

This might seem a little crazy, but you need to experience unrequited love in order to understand how painful it can be at times. It will let you explore the darkest side of love. There would be times when you will cry for apparently no big reason. You won’t be able to share your feelings with anyone else and too often, you would die a thousand deaths inside.

When it comes to moving on, you will realize that it would be the hardest thing that you have ever done in your life. Forgetting your unrequited love is like trying to remember someone you have never met. It’s impossible.

Because it is the purest form of love

You will love them unconditionally and will realize how beautiful it can be at times. You would crave to see them or spend some time with them, but without telling them how much you love them. The thrill and the excitement will always keep you on your toes and you would smile every now and then on yourself. You won’t stop loving them, even if they have no idea about your feelings for them.

Because it is not complicated

There won’t be any fights or arguments. You won’t break up or leave each other in the most unspeakable way. You would be happy just to look at them. It would be their absence that will make you concern and nothing else.

Because it will teach you how to love and let go

Sooner or later, your saga of unrequited love would come to an end, just like every other good thing in this world. But it will teach you the most important lesson of your life – the art of letting go.

Because it will give you everlasting memories

You might let go of them, but the memories will stay with you for the years to come. Every time you would hear their name or would stumble upon their social media profiles, you will instantly smile.

You will realize that this one amazing person has changed your life, without even being a part of it. What you felt for them was something special and no force in this world can take it away from you.
