It may take some time but always keep in mind that you will be healed. Your scars will remain but the pain will subside and you will feel the rays of sunshine coming in and the warmth of being alive again. You will stop feeling drowned by your unrequited feelings because you have accepted that those feelings are directed to the wrong person.
Be patient on your healing process and it will be worth the wait. You will smile brighter than you did before. You’ll have a clearer perspective on the things that will happen in your life. Your experience will be your weapon to whatever the future might bring to you. Let your wounds heal slowly so when the time comes that they might be poked, you would be okay because you have moved on from the past and the scar is just a reminder of how strong of a fighter you have been.
