Is it really love if it's unrequited?
I just got back from "Les Miserable". Unrequited love is one of its themes.
Made me think - is "love" really love if it's not expressed and experienced two-ways? If someone doesn't love you in return, then do you truly know who they are enough to love them? Is it possible to know someone's soul from a distance, or is it a projection of your ideals and fears? Is unrequited love: love, infatuation, or just self-sabotage?
Thoughts on a postcard please
