When I was younger, I used to believe in love. I would daydream about my perfect prince charming and how we would meet and fall madly in love with each other.
I would imagine our wedding day and how happy we would be together. I was sure that one day my dream would come true.
However, as I grew older, I realized that love was not always as perfect as I had imagined it to be.
Sometimes, the person you love does not love you back. Sometimes, you can give your all to someone and they would still not love you the way you want them to.
I experienced this firsthand when I fell in love with my best friend. I thought he was perfect for me and I was sure he felt the same way about me.
However, no matter how much I tried, he never saw me as anything more than a friend.
It hurt to realize that the person I loved did not love me back, but I was even more hurt by the fact that I could not do anything to change his mind.
I eventually moved on from that experience, but it left me feeling jaded and skeptical about love.
I stopped believing in the fairytale love story that I had once dreamed of. Instead, I learned to accept that love is not always perfect and sometimes, it just doesn’t work out the way you want it to.
