How the Fcuk can You be Scared of Love?!


Sometimes I wonder what I would answer if my friends asked me if I was in love with him. Now, they would never question because I'm really good at hiding my feelings due to years of practice. But IF.

"I don't know" I might say. "I'll admit that there is a certain tension between him and me that I don't feel I have with anyone else." Then, after a moment of thought, I might continue: "But, what I do know is that sometimes I want to stroke his back so bad I can't barely stand it, and sometimes I make things on purpose just so I can be near him. What I also do know, is that I'm scared. So awfully scared."

The ting is that I don't want to feel anything. At all. But sometimes the feelings attack me so hard I can't ignore them anymore. They push and push and push, until they finally come through, and then, usually, I run. I can't bear to deal with them, and I certainly can't deal with the feelings that comes after. When you've been hurt. And you always get hurt.

I never let anyone in. It takes years of good behaviour to make me trust a person fully. Much because I've been let down. Hard. I've poured my heart out to people who only stomped it and threw it away. Such things hurt. And leave marks. So, in many many years I've never let myself feel anything for anyone, I've run when I couldn't ignore the feelings anymore. I've run so awfully much, in such an awful long time, and I'm so awfully tired.

So, this time, I shave sworn to myself to stay put, to not run from them. The feelings that make me want him to hold me. The feelings that, when he looks at me in a certain way, are so overwhelming that it takes all of my self-restraint to not move over and kiss him full on the mouth. The feelings that makes me pee myself out of fear.

I really don't know what to do. People tell me loving someone is the greatest thing in life, but I know how you feel when you get hurt, and I know running is easy and it spares your feelings, and... And I'm babbling. I always do when I'm scared. And I'm so awfully scared right now.

How the fuck can you be scared of love? I truly must be an idiot.



I found this on Le Love as well. Such an awesome and sincere blog. From all over the world really. And awesome pics included. But seriously... think about these words for a second. Do you do the same thing? I do. Sort of. And I am a master at hiding what I really feel. Nobody really knows me in that sense. And once someone starts breaking down my walls and seeing through my pretenses, I want to run as well. It's scary!! But for once it feels like I'm the verge of speaking VERY truthfully when I say I'M IN LOVE. I really am. And I don't WANT to run anymore. I just want to run to him. That's good right?

Worth the read. And sad.
And... hasn't this happened to a lot of us? Somehow?

The Wheel DOES Turn

CAN you bloody believe it?! The wheel DOES turn. I hope you know the saying, otherwise that statement would make NO sense to you. They saying goes that 'Whatever goes around comes around.' And 'What you give is what you get.' As well as 'Do unto others what you want done to yourself.' Oh and another one ... 'What you do to others will come back to you 3 X 3.'

Scary to think about it that way huh? Scary to think that what you give out is what you're going to get back. Whether you like it or not. Scary to think that there are so many people out there with so much negativity in their hearts, with so much hatred and so many issues. Best is... they are surprised when things don't go well for them. WTF?! People like that, in my opinion, have NO common sense. And that's just bloody amazing right there on its own. I mean . . . ? !

Okay, I'm not going into that debate right now. Nor do I have the time.

Have you ever watched The Secret?
Well I'm going to be honest here and tell you that I was VERY skeptical over The Secret and all they claim it is. I watched the DVD, I didn't read the book. I just thought to myself 'Well yes, it's a lovely thought and all, but that's just not how it works. That's just not how it turns out.' And can you believe it?! I was wrong. Yes. I admit it. I was wrong. So sue me. =D I'm not here to promote The Secret or speak of any prophecy of any sort. I'm just putting this into perspective. (And maybe if you watch it and think the same thing I was thinking and then later in life you realize but you were as wrong as I was you think back on my wise words as well...)

As you might have realized... I went through a tough time after the break up with Glitch, the Ex (If you're behind on my extremely interesting over-rated mundane life, well then, look it up) ... It's not as if Glitch was the most wonderful boyfriend or I loved him the most or anything like that (We dated for 9 months, get real.) I think I had just had enough. After years and years (seriously!) of not being single any longer than a month, I was just finished. I couldn't take it anymore. I had two blissful weeks after the break-up STILL spent in his arms and talking to him and spending time with him. AKA I had two weeks of blissful denial that we were DONE.

Note to self (Maybe you* ought to copy this one)

After my pathetic denial of the inevitable I found myself - Alone. FAN-FCUKIN-TASTIC. Yes, I cried a bit. Yes, I spent time alone. Yes, I felt sorry for myself. Yes, I missed him. Oh... how I missed him! But did I miss HIM or just the thought of him?? That's what got me thinking I guess... and that train of thought just had no brakes, I'm telling ya! =D

Well I'm not one for self-pity or locking myself up from the world, so I went out and made myself heard. Also my reason for not blogging. I don't get a moment for myself!! (Not that I'm complaining...) I have awesome friends who love me for me and care for and stand by me. I have friends who need me. I have friends who look up to me. I have friends I look up to and very much need in my life. My pillars of strength. I have old friends, new friends, funky friends and weird friends. I have friends who expect me to get the party started! Wait. What?! Yes. Me.

Side Note: I never used to be this person. =D

Strange to think about actually. I don't know how this happened. (I'm rambling again. Deal with it.) One minute I'm a friend. Now I'm the friend. Not to blow my own horn or anything. I LOVE what I do. I love being the one who's shoulder you can cry on. I love being the friend you run to for comfort, protection and advice. I love being there for my girls. I love knowing that they are there for me. I love how well we know each other and that we can put up with each others sh!ts and giggles all the way! I love showing them how wonderful the world is and how spontaneous and random we can be together. And it's ALWAYS fun!! I turned to them. Now they are turning to me. And I love it. It gives me meaning. And I needed that for so long. I felt like a lost fart. Not anymore though...

(By the way I've probably been working on this post for 2 weeks now. I can't get to finishing it. And I can't get to the point. I give up.)

Dear Dad

Clearly, I was bitter. I found this on my laptop. Hidden.
You have to understand something here... I don't have a dad. Never have. Never will. Don't give a sh!t anymore. Yes. Anymore. I DID give a sh!t at one point. It's normal. It blew over. (After some counselling. Admittedly. But it's over nonetheless.) I was angry. I was going through a lot of sh!t at that point in time. And I lashed out at the non-existent dad. HAHA!! Yeah... I'm awesome like that. But anyway, that's a whole different post right there. Enjoy. I think. =D

Dear dad, why'd you do it?
Dear Dad, why'd you go?
Why'd you have to go and leave us?
Why'd you never let me know?
You never wanted to know me, you didn't want
me to exist. You let my mom go, you dropped
us like an old rag. Don't you love us? Did you ever?
No, you're useless! You're a fraud! You're just a load of shit
sent to give me life! No way, you screwed it up dad!
My life is anyway a mess!
I hope you burn in HELL, Dear Dad!!

Yeah go ahead and laugh. I did too. I thought these would be funny. I came across
this site and thought 'Hey why the hell not... I'm bored...' So there you go! LMAO!!

Phychic huh? Not the first time I've heard that about myself...

SO True!

Death through Sex!
You are going to die by having a heart attack during sex. This is probably because it fills up so much of your time now that if you died doing anything else, it would be going against the odds.

Whoop Whoop!!!! Now THAT'S the way to go!! =D

You are 53% Psychic!
You are psychic. You are above average when it comes to perceiving the future. You are very observant and clever, with a good amount of common sense. It is very easy for you to predict things and be correct.

Yeah Yeah...

You hate Smug People!
Smugness is your biggest pet peeve. What with all their thinking they’re so good. They are so self-absorbed, they won’t acknowledge anyone but themselves. Arg.

Totally True. I cannot stand them. Nobody is better than anybody else.

Cool. I think. =D

Fun is most important in your life.
Having a high focus on fun indicates that you value your own enjoyment over anything else. And there is nothing wrong with that. Your motto is we're here for a good time - not a long time.
Life Piechart -

I have to admit... that might just be partially true.

Kindness is most important in a boyfriend/girlfriend. You want someone who will go through everything with you - the best moments and the worst, and all of those other moments in between. You love to be able to say anything to your partner, and have them say anything to you. You are able to be extremely close with your partner for that reason.
