i recently went through a trial when i found myself having strong feelings for a woman i met and she didn`t respond in kind. thankfully the pain has subsided now and apart from the occasional return, the feelings are gone......to my great relief.
i talk with many people and they all tell me of similar experiences where thier lives are consumed with feelings for someone who doesn`t reciprocate.
i have to ask at this point of clarity and freedom from the pain what the hell the purpose of such totally consuming emotion is for when it fails catastrophically.
does anyone know?
