When I was in college, I crushed pretty hard on one of my close girl friends. One day, I heard her say about me, “He’s so awkward and weird, I don’t see how a woman could ever fall in love with him.”
Now in hindsight it doesn’t feel so bad anymore, but at the time it crushed me.
edit after 250 upvotes – I’ve been reading a good amount of your shares. damn. life and some close people have done y’all pretty rough. I’m not minimizing my own pain or anyone else’s, cause each of us found those moments very painful regardless of what was done or said to you at the time. But I’m glad to hear that some of y’all have got the esteem and confidence and maturity to move on and learn. kudos to all of you, y’all are wonderful people and you deserve all the love.
