// What if things do work out?
// What if you gave this relationship a chance instead of running away from it because you want to be “free.”
// What if you accepted the fact that when you’re with the right person, you never feel trapped? You only feel a new sense of freedom. So yeah, please believe I’m going to go on that first date.
Pain is something we shy away from because who the hell wants to be in pain anyway? I understand, but I challenge this notion because what the hell are we doing then? Yes, we can just go in and out of casual flings/relationships never getting hurt, but again, I find this to be so boring. You want exciting? You want an adventure? You want newness? Let go. Let someone in and dive into the unknown. Yes, you run the risk of things being amazing one minute and the next you realize this person isn’t for you or worse yet, they realize that about you and you’re left destroyed for months (been there so many times). But you know what? It's always worth it because the alternative means never trying and what a waste that would be.
Let's look forward to the quiet, simple moments in life just as much as the loud and bold times. Let’s be strong and brave together.
