If you fall for your best friend and he doesn’t share the same, get over it or get away from it. Not having your feelings returned isn’t the worst part, trust me. It gets worse.
One day, he will find someone and he will probably fall head over heels for him. He will share all the things that you wish you shared with him, with someone else and you will just be standing, watching from the sidelines. He will probably get his heart broken and come crying to you, searching for comfort. You will probably tell him that he deserves better and that the other one isn’t any good for him. You will be there for him, hoping that he will finally see how great you are but he won’t. He will return to the other person.
You will lose your self-worth. You will start becoming pessimistic about life. You will blame three people. Him for not seeing how outstanding you are, the one he fell for for not being worthy of you, for stealing him away from you and you will blame yourself for not being good enough. And if you still haven’t recovered from getting your act together, you’ll lose him.
It’s unbearable for you to see him anymore. Conversations are awkward and you really don’t know what to talk about. You want to ask questions, how he is, what his lover is like but rather, you don’t. You don’t because you want to avoid hearing that he makes him happy. That everything is just great. That your chance with him just suddenly dropped to zero. You will stop hitting him up as much and he will return the favor. And the sad thing is that even when the two of you don’t talk, he will probably move on faster than you ever will.
And at the end, you have this vague feeling. You’re not disappointed, angry or even jealous anymore. You just miss your best friend. The conversations you held long lasting throughout the days and nights. The best of all the best that you two once had and you could still have had it all. If only you just moved on. If only you could be happy for him. If only you didn’t love him. And at that moment, you feel absolutely much worse than just being rejected by someone you love.
But then again, it was inevitable to not fall in love with someone so perfect.
