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?
Falling In Love
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.
Is it even possible to write powerfully from a place other than pain?
You might have loved more in the relationship. You might have given more, and in the end, gotten hurt more. You are afraid of losing yourself again that badly.
We want to have a relationship. Get sappy with someone. The whole thing. Sure, our antics probably don’t suggest this and a lot of our lives don’t read “ready for romance” but if you look, the signs are all there. We’re human, after all.
To put it simply, if you can’t keep yourself afloat, stable, or happy just yet, you won’t really have the time to fully cherish someone else in your life.
Falling in love is a tricky thing.
One little white lie never hurt anyone.
I’m no expert on the subject. I failed at it more times than I care to admit.
Most of the time, we end up with people we never thought we’d actually go out with. But just because we can’t explain it doesn’t mean that we didn’t choose it.
