I just got out of a relationship where I wasn’t being appreciated and love was not being reciprocated and I feel so alone and depressed like I made the wrong choice, did I?

There's nothing wrong in removing yourself from a situation like that. Sometimes it's hard to do so and you need a lot of courage to acknowledge the problem and eventually take a step back. Remember that whenever you do something to protect yourself and your feelings, that will never be a wrong choice. You should be proud of yourself for the choice that you made. You deserve to be in a relationship with someone who loves you and appreciates you more that anything. Never settle for less than that. Your happiness is important. Don't let anyone say otherwise. Be your own priority.

Perhaps take some time to meditate on what the idea of relationship should encompass...is relationship suppose to be defined by the efforts of one person alone? Or should a healthy amount of give/take be present? Of course, there are grey areas and not everything is clear cut but...ultimately, a relationship cannot sustain itself with one person doing most of the work. Especially if the love is going one way. It is okay to feel what you are feeling. It's normal to feel this way, especially if you invested a lot into the relationship. Although in life there are no clear cut answers

If love is not being reciprocated then what is the point of being in that relationship. Feeling alone and depressed after such a life changing decision is understandable and life goes on. Yes need to find ways to move on and fill that feeling of void inside. Choices made are never right or wrong but made in the given circumstances, so what feels wrong now, in time may have been the best decision. Feelings of alone and depression are like knocks on doors, so unless we open the door we will never know what is knocking. After all behind the door may awaiting new opportunities for life.
