From Our Readers: Read This When You Miss Him

This boy may be everything you want, but just because he's perfect for you doesn't mean you're perfect for him.
ART Trixie Ison

You're in love with someone who doesn't love you back. You'll pine, you'll cry, you'll wonder, "Why not me?" You'll go through a mourning period; you'll be mourning for your broken heart, of course. Unrequited love is always a painful thing. It hurts like nothing else does, but ask yourself this: Why would you want to be with somebody who doesn't want to be with you?

Unrequited love is always a painful thing. It hurts like nothing else does, but ask yourself this: Why would you want to be with somebody who doesn't want to be with you?

If he was the one for you, he would've stayed. If he is the one for you, he'll come back. Until then, make yourself happy and stop trying to push yourself into a mold for him. Stop trying to be who you think he wants. You'll never be happy this way. You might get him eventually, but are you willing to lose yourself in the process? You may think this is the end of the world, and it will definitely feel like it, but this is just the beginning of a long road of love and tragedy. You'll learn soon enough that getting your heart broken is a good thing, because it's going teach you who you should love.

You'll learn soon enough that getting your heart broken is a good thing, because it's going teach you who you should love. 

This boy may be everything you want, but just because he's perfect for you doesn't mean you're perfect for him. Let go and stop torturing yourself. You're hurting yourself and you're forgetting something: you are more than your love for him. You are not a girl who spends her spare moments pining and yearning for a boy to make all her troubles go away, to make her forget all her worries in life. You are so much more. 

Then again, maybe you love him because it's hard, because he's something unattainable; maybe you think that if you can get to him, you can do anything. Maybe he's some kind of prize for you, for all that you've been through, maybe you think you deserve him. Maybe you love him because this love isn't easy, because it's full of highs and lows; it's the cheesy movie, young adult novel kind of romance that everyone hopes for. But ask yourself, do you love him for him? If the answer is yes, if you really do, you have to let him go. You are not what he wants. How can you say you love him if you expect him to settle for a life he doesn't want? Let him go. Let him love someone else, let him be happy. Along the way, let yourself be happy. You'll find that loving yourself is more fulfilling than loving anyone else.
