13 Lessons You Learn When You Fall For Someone Who Doesn’t Love You Back

Some people are lucky enough to have the courage to tell someone they like them and even luckier if they reciprocate the same feelings.

But most of us fall victim of loving someone whose love is for someone else. Probably unrequited love is the best kind of love. I’m not trying to sound sadistic, but the pain you go through is immense and worth it. You learn a lot about love which is very similar to learning how to swim. Once you jump into it, you feel like you are drowning. But when you hit the surface and breathe the clean air, you feel more alive than ever before.

Here a few life lessons you’ll learn if you fall in love with someone who is never going to love back and why it happened was actually the best thing that could’ve happened to you.
