You know what's stupid ? Hearing someone you love to talk about someone else, and you just sit there and listen because you are a good friend you don't want them to go through what you are going through right At that moment. Like whatever you do for them, they expect it to be from that other person and not you. You have to accept that they won't see you in that light ever, and you are forever going to be just a friend to them and nothing more. You promised yourself that you would always be there for them even if it hurts you to admit that you can't call them yours. No matter where you are in the future you would always seek that person for a comfort. That person is your happy place no matter how badly it hurts you to see them with someone else. You can't help but feel sorry for yourself because you know that you would never be their “The One”.
