    It Happens All The Time

    Though I have many experiences ahead of me, every time I have fallen head-over-heels for someone, it has always been unrequited or someone has fallen for me but the feeling is not mutual. Though my past has been rather unfortunate, it teaches me a lesson - there will come a time...

    So having unrequited love fore someone you have

    known for a few months is bad or even a year or two. Though knowing someone your whole life and having unrequited love for them is worse. Now I have known this girl since I was a baby, but I don't have much memories of her at that time since it was so long ago. Well this girl...

    I'd say misery is the biggest part. Nothing else compares to wanting to be loved and knowing that you aren't. Its a combination of sadness, anger, loneliness, and being crushed all in one. Thats what misery is.
