I convinced myself I was strong enough not to need your constant presence, and somewhere in the process of talking myself into letting myself love you, this combination of strong and smart that you were supposed to respect and admire backfired and took me down.
Falling In Love
The moral of the story: We are in the prime of our lives.
What is it about being alone that makes some of us so uncomfortable?
Maybe I could love you just a little more than a lot. Maybe I could do that when I don’t know too much.
I stepped gingerly, until I found someone that changed me.
6. You’re afraid that you were the common factor in all of your past relationships and of course it is you, the evolving yet unchanging you, who is at fault in your repetitive tragedy.

Is it looking into a stranger’s eyes for the first time, getting this all-knowing intuition that you’re meant to be with them, the ever-elusive love at first sight? Or is it a growing feeling of unity that comes after years of building friendship and trust, the perfect foundation for an intimate future?
You’ll overlook the red flags waving, and ignore the voice at the back of your head that’s telling you to stop. You’ll choose your heart, that damned thing, and trust that you can overcome it. Even though you probably can’t.
