My best friend and I have been good friends for about a year. I started developing a crush on him a few months back and as much as I want it, I know I'm not ready for it. (I have had a bad history with relationships and I really don't want a relationship rn) I've been trying to get over him but nothing works. I don't want to stay away from him or let him go as a friend because he stabilizes and helps me (cause I have really enhance emotions). I realized that for most of my life, moving on from a crush required to be rejected. So I was wondering if asking him reject me would be a good idea. Or just confessing.
I know it seems pointless but I want to get over this crush and nothing has really helped. I want to stop being so crazy about him and move on. So please understand the circumstance. Thanks
