Know your worth and love yourself enough to not let that person ruin your life!
There are few things in life that are more painful than having to endure loving someone who doesn’t love you back. The pains of unrequited love have served as inspiration for the most heartbreaking stories ever told. Even Shakespeare was not immune to using heartbreak as a common theme for his works. The reason for that is because heartbreak resonates with so many people. The struggles of unrequited love have struck as all, and we can relate to it deeply.

If they’ve gotten through it; if they eventually found happiness in the end, then there is hope for us too. Here are X simple ways that you can move on from unrequited love.
1. Make Your Own Self The Priority
After having devoted all your love to someone who didn’t return it, you’re probably feeling extremely emotionally drained. You have so much love bottled up in you and you need an outlet for it. There’s no need to look any further than yourself. You deserve all of the love that you’ve been giving to other people. You should be your own priority now. Show some love to yourself and pamper yourself more. There is no person more important in your life than you. Show yourself some love and stop waiting to find love from other people.
2. Get a Brand New Look
Get a brand new look. Go out and get a haircut. Shop for an entirely new wardrobe. Buy some new makeup. Change how you look and feel good about it. Your new look should represent a new life and a new outlook on love. You’re still the same person, but you’re stronger now. You’ve grown to be a more mature and more comfortable individual. You are able to withstand all troubles and emerge unscathed. In fact, you look better now than you ever did.В – Continue reading on the next page
3. Spend More Time With Your Girls
If you can’t rely on the love from a man, at least you have your girlfriends there to help compensate. The love and support you can get from your girls are absolutely vital in helping you move on from your heartbreaking ordeal. Go out with them as often as you can and have fun with being single for a bit. Forget about boys and just be thankful that your girls are there for you whenever you need them. Besides, the love you can get from your girlfriends should be enough for anyone to be happy.
4. Don’t Carry Around Any Excess Baggage
Stop carrying the weight of your heartbreaking experience on your shoulders. You won’t be able to move on if you continue to let it hurt you. Yes, moving on is difficult, but it’s not impossible. You should just relieve yourself of that unnecessary stress and shrug off any ill feelings that you’re carrying. Stop being sad and angry. Remember that feelings are all about mindsets and perspectives. Change your mindset and your outlook on the situation and you’ll find yourself being a lot lighter and happier about the whole situation. It’s guaranteed that you’ll find moving on a lot easier when you don’t have all of that extra weight on your shoulders.
5. Immerse Yourself in Art and Culture
Go out and see a local show. Watch some movies that you’ve been meaning to see. Listen to the Hamilton soundtrack and immerse yourself in the greatest piece of musical art in recent history. Go to the museum and look at some paintings and read up about them. Go and binge watch Breaking Bad on Netflix. Just find ways to constantly distract yourself from your heartbreak. Art can help heal the heart, be it in whatever form.В – Continue reading on the next page
6. Try Out New Hobbies
Trying out new hobbies can be a great way to kill two birds with one stone. For one, you’re distracting yourself from your heartbreaking experience. Two, you’re improving yourself overall as a human being and you’re challenging yourself to try new things. You’re keeping your mind and your body sharp by taking on new challenges. Maybe you can take up a new musical instrument, or you could go and do regular yoga classes.
7. Burn Your Bridges
Burn all lines of communications and erase all memories. If it was as toxic an experience as it truly was, then it’s best to just leave it in the past. Never try to rekindle any flames because that might just lead to more pain. Move forward into the future without the pains of the past. Burn the bridges so you won’t be tempted to cross back over.
8. Go on Vacation
Just go and take a trip. Go anywhere you want. It doesn’t even have to be grand. You could go see the pyramids in Egypt, the temples in Cambodia, the Eiffel Tower in France, or you could just go and spend the weekend in the nearby woods. Just make sure you do it for yourself and not for anyone else.
