The Back Seat
"I took the back seat to boyfriends, friends, and social outings, all because I allowed him that position of power over me. I let him feel that it was OK to treat me the way he did. I felt that it was OK that he treated me that way. I allowed it because (1) I loved him, and (2) deep down I never felt good enough for him. I felt too ugly for him, too fat, too crazy, too feminine. Any excuse I could come up with to convince myself that I wasn't good enough, I did. There was never a point in those five years when I felt worthy enough for someone I saw as so perfect.

Unrequited love has never hurt this good.
