I once loved someone so much, I lost myself. This was the kind of unhealthy, unrequited love that wreaked havoc upon my entire life. He was perfect to me. I put him so high up on a pedestal that he could do no wrong.

I prioritized him before everyone in my life. He considered me no more than an option. Don’t let it happen…




Love changes us. Love makes us human.
