Why You Should ALWAYS Tell Your Crush How You Feel

Having a crush is all fun and games until your feelings for them become a little more serious than you'd like.

Realizing you really, really like someone is scary, but nothing's more terrifying than the thought of admitting your undying affection for said individual.

You're probably thinking it's best to keep those sentiments between yourself and your closest friends, but why not tell your crush how you feel?

We know the thought of doing that probably makes you want to run for the hills, but below are a few reasons why sharing your feelings about your crush with them is something you should always do.

You'll Finally Know How They Feel About You

The best part about telling your crush how you feel is finally knowing what they think of you in return. You dwell on it all the time, convincing yourself they have feelings for you and then quickly retracting that thought. So when you tell your crush you have feelings for them, you'll get your answer. It might not be the answer you want to hear, but at least you can sleep better at night knowing whether or not they want to be friends or something more.

You'll Feel a Weight Lifted Off Your Shoulders

Harboring feelings for someone starts to eat away at you after a while. It consumes your day-to-day life, which makes it difficult for you to focus on anything else. All you care about is that person and that person only. It's not healthy in the slightest, which is why confessing your feelings for them will only benefit you in the long run. You'll instantly feel a weight lifted off your shoulders when your admission escapes your mouth. You'll quickly transition back to being a normal human being, which your friends and family will greatly appreciate.

 

It'll Boost Your Confidence

Being able to tell someone you like them, regardless of if it works out or not, will only increase your confidence tenfold. Sure, it sucks when you're rejected by someone you fell head over heels for, but it'll only make you stronger. And if it does work out, how could you not feel like you're on top of the world? It really is a win-win situation, so profess your love as soon as you can.

It's Good Practice

Chances are whoever your crush is isn't the one you're going to be with for the rest of your life. Sorry, but that's just the way of the world. If you do end up with them forever, great. If not, on to bigger and better. The important thing here is that if you can tell someone you like them once, you can very well do it again. The more you share your feelings with others, the easier it becomes to do. We know it's a terrifying thing to put yourself out there, but how can you expect anything fun and exciting to happen to you if you don't? You have to risk it to get the biscuit.

 

Your Crush Deserves to Know About Your Feelings

Wouldn't you want to know if someone had a crush on you, even if you didn't feel the same way? Um, duh! We all want to know, especially because some of us are completely oblivious to the advances of others. Not everyone notices the heart eyes you have for them, so be open to sharing that with them. It may be awkward at first, but it's all a learning process and something that will only benefit everyone involved in the longrun.
