On My Own And Learn To Be Lonely

How many of us have loved and was never loved in return?

An unrequited love they say is the most painful emotion a person can feel. Well, I have experienced it before and I would say after deciding to finally move on, I have gone through a lot — depression, loneliness and no longer believing in love. Those years were the darkest of my life. I hope I won’t get into that again.. I guess I won’t anymore, as until now I haven’t learned to open my heart yet and I still don’t know if I would in the future.

When I checked videos on YouTube, I stumbled across this video of Lea Salonga as Eponine singing On My Own. And it just captured the real emotions of someone having unrequited love.

The same thing with Learn To Be Lonely sang by Minnie Driver in Phantom of the Opera Movie. It tells the Phantom, Erik, that he should learn how to be lonely as life can still go on without having special someone. I’m learning it now and I hope I’ll learn it all soon.

Enjoy.
