What an interesting take on something that many of us (including myself) try our hardest to avoid. I really appreciate the author’s perspective that we grow as people as a result of loving someone who doesn’t love us back. You have the opportunity to learn a lifelong lesson about yourself when you make the decision to love without it being reciprocated. Granted, the whole experience can be immensely emotionally stressful but the author is completely right. After a few weeks, month, or maybe even years, you get over it and you learn to move on. Probably one of the harder lessons that you can personally experience but also one of the really important ones.
