No matter how powerful and real your feelings may be for Someone, if that person cannot fully and honestly return them and therefore actively love you back, these feelings mean nothing. Being lonely, being alone - for many people - sucks. I get it, I get it, I get it. But still, I have to say that, yes, my belief is that being with somebody who makes you feel shitty or doesn't honor the person you are is worse. Life is hard enough as it is without choosing someone difficult to share it with. You deserve to be with someone who is nice to you all the time.
