Unrequited love is such an intensely painful experience – sometimes it helps to share your feelings with someone else. But that’s not always an easy thing. Sometimes the emotions are just too much.
That’s when writing can come in. Writing helps your brain to untangle emotions. There are even scientific studies that have shown that writing can lessen the emotional impact of certain memories and thoughts.
But even better than writing for yourself can be to write down how you feel and what you think on a public discussino forum on the internet. The good thing is – you do not need to use your true name. In fact, you should not, but rather protect your anonymity and use a synonym. (And also change the name of the person that you’re in love with if you mention him or her).
Remember – what you write on the internet can be archived forever, and you don’t want someone to be googling it ten years in the future and find out about some of your most intimate, private thoughts and feelings in this difficult time.
But having said that – it really can help to share your feelings this way.
There is a discussion about unrequited love going on right now in this forum. Why not join in? (And if you found help or positive suggestions on this site, you might also mention it on the forum so that others can come and check my little site out too).
