Tuesday Talk: Self Care Sessions Vol. 7

A little surprised (but happy) to see us at #6. 🙂

I have not had a great week. I’ve been suffering from heartache caused by unrequited love and my computer has not been repaired yet. I’m struggling to think of some positive things I have done this week.

1) I got to leave work early on Monday. This wasn’t by my own doing. My boss had to leave early and because there were no patients to sign in there was no need for me to stay.

2) I finished watching Merlin and Downton Abbey.  I’ve started watching Outlander.    I stopped watching it because it didn’t hold my interest. I’m hoping it will improve with each successive episode. I’m on episode 4 now.

3) I found a recent photo of an old crush recently. It brought back all these old feelings I thought had vanished. Hence my sad week and the struggle to do nice things for myself. I had hoped I could stop having feelings for him after 11 years. The passage of time hasn’t helped.

4) I found a photo of my old crush online. He’s still very cute. Lol.

Here is my question to you: have you ever had feelings for someone which never died? Have you ever experienced unrequited love? Have you ever loved someone who you know you’d never marry or could be with?

How did you cope?

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve had a bad week. I hope next week will be a better one for you! ❤

  2. Aw, I’m sorry you had a rough week. I married my first love, so I don’t really know what it’s like thinking about a former love or an ex.

    ah sorry to hear you havent had the best week. leaving work early helps though. i’ve definitely had very strong crushes that havent been reciprocated. its hard to deal with, especially if you’re a romantic at heart and tend to think about them all the time.
    i liked a guy in school for nearly five years. i got over him when i went to college, but one day in my third year, i was going through one of his social media links (i tend to do that when i get nostalgic!) and he had written that he liked some other girl in school and he wished he had done something about it, the same years i had a crush on him. even though i was completely over him, i was so surprised that it still hurt me so much to read that. so i could somewhat relate to your post. i think its alright to reminisce once in a while, it can even be healthy to do so, but i try not to get carried away, and think ahead. that was useless advice but its the truth x

    Sorry your week has been tough! I’ve had some frustrating days and I haven’t been sleeping well, so I’m in a crabby mood… I have a gift card for a massage, I’m hoping to be able to use it on Friday!
    To answer your questions:
    – Have you ever experienced unrequited love? Yes, it was my specialty in life when I was very young! Eventually, I came to the realization that there is no real love that is not reciprocated. The crush can be extremely intense and the disappointment devastating when you realize nothing’s ever gonna happen, but, imo, you can’t call it love, because you don’t fully know the person you’re infatuated with as long as you’re not in a relationship with them. You’re in love with an ideal person that doesn’t really exist. That’s just my opinion, and I’m not known to be a romantic…
    – Have you ever had feelings for someone which never died? Nope! I thought I would die from breakups a few times – mostly the first time – but I always survived. Again, my not-so-romantic self tells people to move on and get over it. I’m fully aware of the difficulty and the pain, yet I think that keeping souvenirs from past relationships and keeping in touch with exes is extremely unhealthy. That first breakup I thought was gonna kill me: a year later I was happy with my life and then my ex sent me pictures of us on our first date anniversary. I felt sorry for the guy and threw everything to the trash, never answered. When it’s over, I move on.
    Now I’m happily married, and although I think my past relationships contributed to making me who I am, I have zero desire to know what my exes are doing. I hope they’re happy, but I don’t care about the details.


  6. I am married to a man that I feel I can´t be with at least twice a month, but we can´t let go. Could´t before and for sure won´t now that we have children.
    Other than that I have never loved someone as strongly, which is probably the reason why I can´t say goodbye. I still have feelings for my former husband, because we were together more than eight years, but these are more the subdued, nostalgic kind, not the hurting. I don´t really have any advice other than to accept and tell yourself that some people never experience feelings the strong in their whole life, so it is a blessing, even though it won´t feel like one at the time.
