From Our Readers: "The Person I Love Doesn't Love Me Back"
Love is a big word. Everyone experiences it, even blind people feel it. Love is an intense feeling of deep affection. But love won't come directly to our life. We need to wait until that perfect time would come. There are a lot of processes when we fall for someone. We cannot say that we love them directly because at first we just get attracted to them. Maybe for their physical appearance or just the way we look at them.
I like a guy, and I drop a few hints, too. But somehow, he either doesn't see the little hints or doesn't do anything to reciprocate my love for him. Unfortunately, sometimes love doesn't always go the way you want them to. You might be into some guy but for some reason, he's just not into you. You'll first give him little hints about how you feel, expect him to do the same. But even with the effort, it seems that this guy is either not getting it or he isn't into you at all.
I think I had this big problem of being a teenager. I know all of us are waiting for that perfect boy to come to our lives, but I just really like this guy a lot. I always see him at school but I'm not that lucky because we're not close and we don't even know each other. He's popular and I'm just one of his fangirls. He is everything a girl could ever want. He is charming, funny, smart, classy, manly, and more.
The person I love doesn't love me back because he has no idea that I am into him.
The boy I love has no idea that I am into him because when he's beside me or near me, I act in a normal way and not as myself. I'm not in love with him just because of his appearance. There's something that I can't explain in words of why I'm into him. I am scared of making the first move and confessing my feelings for him.
He doesn't love me back because maybe, I'm not his kind of girl. Every girl knows that when the person we like doesn't feel the same way like we do, we get offended but for me it doesn't matter anymore because I know I am not the right girl for him. I cannot force someone to feel the way I do. I can't control them. If our hearts beat for each other that would be a wonderful feeling. Just remember that we cannot force someone to love us back.
This is the reason why I have to move on because I know that he's not into me and I know that he's attracted to someone else.
He doesn't love me back because maybe he's into someone else, and that stings a little. This is the reason why I have to move on because I know that he's not into me and I know that he's attracted to someone else. This part is where I feel the pain when someone told me that he likes somebody else. I tried to act fine but deep inside, those painful words kept on stabbing me.
Everyone might think that I'll decide to leave him, but knowing that he doesn't love me back makes me love him even more.
Sometimes, the ones we love don't love us back. And the ones we don't love actually do love us. Maybe love is a challenge for all of us. If someone doesn't seem to love you back, don't push yourself. I told myself to stop it because I'll end up getting hurt in the process. That it might be fun and exciting at the beginning, but it gets tiring really quick. I have learned that it doesn't do good to chase someone who doesn't love me. All I have to do is wait for the guy who's destined to be with me.

We just bought coffee across our village and went back home immediately. This painting made me feel that I'm in a field, just appreciating the beauty of God's creation. Can you imagine the green grass and pink flowers?"
When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.
You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.
You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
I always thought of life, like a bead where each piece makes it worth sewing together with other piece of beads to make a stronger bond and to create a beautiful result. Today, how do we bond well with different people especially this difficult time? As this day challenges us to a new normal, may we continue to bead along positively with our life.
