Keep in mind that you cannot control the decisions of other people. You are only in control of yourself. So before you sulk in a corner asking, "Is there something wrong with me? Why doesn't he love me back?" Just remember that you are beautiful and you are more than enough. No boy can ever change that.

You are young and wonderful things are only beginning for you. So instead of waiting for a boy who doesn’t even show the slightest hint of interest, just find something new to do or get interested in. Start a new hobby. Read the books you've been wanting to read for so long. Go on an adventure. This is your time to start anew. Embrace this opportunity!

4. Spend more time with your family and friends.

Surround yourself with the people that love you. It might be a different kind of love but it’s still the best possible love out there. No one can ever replace the unconditional love and affection given by your family and friends.

Unrequited love hurts a lot but this doesn’t mean that you should just give up on love because reality is that things won’t always go your way. There will always be trials to overcome and battles to be conquered. But trust us when we say that love is worth it. Don’t let one heartache change your view on love. Make it a lesson to move on not a reason to give up.
