To love is to be hurt
I know that posts about love are too mainstream, but hey, give me a chance to post one. I rarely post something about love, and whenever I do, it is usually not too dramatic or too emotional. So, here it is.
I have always believed in the saying that “To love is to be hurt.” I am not sure if I got this saying from somewhere or if I made it up, though I am sure that most of you believe in this one. I mean, there is always a time when one gets hurt because of love, right? If you have not experienced pain in the process of loving someone, maybe it is because it is not love that you have experienced, or maybe it is because you are just an abnormal person.
This is the very reason why I’m afraid to fall in love, or to even have a crush on someone. I am not scared to like guys just because they are handsome or cute, but when I start to like a guy and I do not even know why I do, that’s when the “scary” part comes in. I always fear love because I know that it will just shatter me into pieces, in the end.
I am writing this post because I’m starting to fall in love again, and it scares me. I have experienced falling in love (or maybe it wasn’t love, whatever), and it did not do me any good. In the end, I always get hurt and the people I love always leave. Not that it is their fault or something, though. It’s my fault because I never make a move, because I fear rejection and I know that I am never good enough for the person I love.
I am starting to fall in love again, but this time, it is different. I am falling in love with a guy who is actually my friend, and someone who I actually talk to almost everyday. This time, falling in love is scarier because I know that I will experience more pain, more confusion, and a bigger heartbreak.
So please tell me, how do you stop someone from falling in love? Because I need myself or someone to stop me from doing so. I do not want to get hurt again, especially when it is because of that thing called love. I would rather get hurt by insults of other people, I swear.
Or maybe there is no way to stop me from falling in love.
