Final Thoughts

No matter what your situation is today, you can use any of the quotes above to help you with your crush. A crush may fade after a few months, but sometimes it can also last for years. It’ll be much better if you tell him/her about your feelings, rather than never letting them know; otherwise, you’ll never know if he/she actually feels the same way or not.

Don’t get scared about rejection, because that is normal, and everyone gets to experience it. Also, don’t take it personally if your crush cannot reciprocate your feelings. Remember, we cannot teach our heart who it should love, so be fully prepared for the possibility of rejection. Just enjoy and accept all the things you get to experience with your crush.
