Living with someone you love can be lonelier than living entirely alone. When the one you love doesn't love you.
- Cat on a hot tin roof.
This quote has stuck with me ever since I saw the movie. And every time I read it, the sheer honesty and truth of the statement hits me.
It doesn't have to be living together. It can just mean being together with a person who doesn't love you like you love them.
It doesn't have to be love in a romantic sense. It can be friendship too. With people who don't appreciate you.
In the end, love unrequited is loneliness, rejection and a whole lot more.
