Why Are We Scared to Fall?

Why are we afraid of falling? Relationships nowadays seem like a lost art. Seems like everyone is trying to avoid their emotions. We run from love because we’re afraid to get hurt. But in reality, the pain of regret and the pain of limiting ourselves is far worse.

A few months ago, I went out with someone and and before I even got to know her, I felt this weird feeling in my stomach. This weird connection. And immediately I tried to silence it.

Then all these questions started popping up in my head. Like: All this from 1 date? Isnt this too early? What if she doesnt like me? What if we like each other than it doesnt work out? What if I hurt her? Besides. I don’t wanna give up any of my other options by committing too soon right.

What if I only like her because Im running from something inside of me?

But really though… who cares? Sometimes in life and in love, it doesn’t work out and you get hurt. Sometimes you’re wrong about people and your feelings lead you astray. And some times you gotta give up your options. You can’t have it all. Life is never perfect.

Besides… If it doesn’t work out, I learn more about what I want out of a relationship. I grow stronger. And maybe I gain a friend. Maybe my options will still be there. Waiting in my DMs lol.

Never forget…. when you love with all of your heart, you can never lose.
