Two Words That Changed My Life Forever

sad women fiction misstalkaholic
I never wanted aught but love. Love is what defined me, it's what I looked for.

I am not that type of girl who is desired byย every man. I am more of a “chubby cheeks” girl. But, my personality never failed me to attract the most stylish guy on the floor. I was perfect in my life until I made a mistake that I am not ashamed of. I fell in love with a man who never loved me back. That love kept hurting me till the end.

It happened 8 years back when I was in the college & he was my classmate. I never realized when our friendship fell into a friend zone. All the stupid things he used to do, started making sense for me. I began admiring him & soon my love became apparent to everyone around. For many years, I chased him & he backed off. Soon, my love became a public joke for everyone.

We kept best friends for many years because I wasn’t ready to lose him at any cost. Blindly in love, I never accepted the truth that he doesn’t love me & he will never love me. I never understood that he was not only playing with my sentiments but also using me for his self-serving. Few of my close friends warned me against him, but I unfriended all of them. On the last day of our college, he said me two words which changed me.

He said, “Leave me.” I let him inside the heart & he destroyed it. The pain of incomplete love story made me fall hard. He was supposed to be “the man” to me. His poignant love taught me to be tough, robust & hard as nails. I kept wishing and dreaming about him for years. I saw him happy with his new girlfriend’s but I never hated him. The feeling of emptiness killed me every day until the day I met my better half.

He came into my life unexpectedly. I never wanted anyone else but I couldn’t let my loneliness kill me. People says time is the best healer but in my case, time couldn’t heal me or my broken heart. I was living a clueless life until the day I met him. This time, I wasn’t ready to be broken again because I assumed he must be joking too. But, he said me two words that changed my life forever.

Marry Me,” he said.

  1. From experience I can say that I was an Academy Award winner of picking men who were incapable of love. Who never could return the love that I offered, that I desired, that I desperately sought out.
    Looking back upon my younger years, I could recall those few men that sought my love, but I turned them away. I was unattracted to those that were capable of giving love to me, then those that were incapable of it.
    I tolerated and ‘put up with’ those bad boys that never could love. I DID that! For reasons I know of now, but was not aware of then. Those reasons are deep and come from roots of great pain and no role models to teach me what real love was, or how to recognize it.

    I encourage you to recognize, to discover, and to stop making those decisions that lead you to men who are incapable of loving, or returning your love. You, I and every person deserves to know a true love.

    I wish for you, an early discovery of finding men who will return your love. To knowing a mutal love for each other.

    To love……..

    1. Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your experience with me. I hope the best for each & every person in this world who is in love and is looking for love. My best wishes for you…..

  2. Unrequited love is the worst kind of experience to have especially when you are young. I’m glad you found the right guy who appreciated you for what you are.. Be happy!

  3. Falak! Unrequited love is always painful and we are always scared for losing this special friend. Once, I remember someone telling me to decide how I fit into her life. I was able to take the decision. It hurts a lot, I know. But, keep believing my love and smile:)

  4. You can’t create expectations of love…it happens from impulse and connections of two hearts. We choose to apply social labels to justify our leaps into the unknown only to awake to failure and heartache. Take pride in yourself from a realistic perspective of who you are? Then share that with the world…love will meet you at that place๐Ÿ˜

  5. I am so happy for you after reading the concluding lines. Yes, time is not always the best healer. And, to be frank and straight, it is not at all a healer in certain cases. Sometimes it even gradually turns a boil into a canker. You got a perfect healer in the form of your soulmate. Lucky you. God bless you. I donโ€™t know whether you understand Hindi / Urdu or take interest in Shaayari. I am quoting a SHER (urdu poetic couplet) for you : JO HO EK BAAR, WOH HAR BAAR HO, AISA NAHIN HOTA; HAMESHA EK HI SE PYAR HO, AISA NAHIN HOTA; KAHIN KOI TO HOGA JISKO APNI BHI ZAROORAT HO, HAR EK BAAZI MEIN DIL HI HAAR HO, AISA NAHIN HOTA.

    1. Beautiful shayari. But I would like to tell you that I have only written this story. It’s fiction with a happy ending. You can read more fiction stories on my blog. And Hey I can understand Hindi/Urdu both.

  6. This post was so touching that it gave me chills! Wow! I have a big smile and it just warmed my heart. Thank you so much for sharing this. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I know the feeling of loving someone who didnโ€™t love me back. Itโ€™s so hard to recover from such a heartbreak but, like you, it all worked out for me once I met the person who did love me back. Happy to say sheโ€™s my wife now and have since started a family with her. Iโ€™m happy for you that you found your other half too and I wish you all the best in your marriage!

    1. Thank you my friend. But this is not my story. I have just written it. It’s a fiction with a happy ending. I am happy that you took the wise decision in your life too. Everyone must learn from this.

  8. I’m happy for you. You said yes right? I was close once but then the other shoe dropped and I got the “Dear Jane” Letter saying he wasn’t good enough. At that time I was upset but now I realize it was for the best. Weird how things work out.

  9. I didn’t see that coming, either. Wonderful ending. Until then, I’d been reflecting that many of us fall in love with another that doesn’t love us. How we respond shapes us. You responded in an admirable way. Cheers

    1. I agree with you, it depends on us how we take the things. Love is painful yet beautiful. Just because someone chose a wrong person earlier doesn’t mean he should stop believing in love. I am more than happy with the ending of this story because it is very close to my heart. Thankyou for making a comment. It meant a lot. โ˜บ

  10. Ah! I know how this feels. Believing that this person is the one when he is actually not. I am glad you have a happy ending. โค๏ธ
