That way I can still feel the butterflies, the carefree laughter, the feeling that could only be defined as bliss. But I won’t think of a future and I try very hard not to think of the past. So I’ll still be happy but I won’t get hurt.
So far so good.
Fortune favours the bold. Remember that the lack of pain is not pleasure. The pleasantries of the day-to-day is not what living is about. Why would you want to live in such a lonely world?
Getting hurt by someone you love is terrible, but it isn’t as terrible as never letting yourself love someone in the first place. You can’t let the world defeat you like that.
Keep trying. Keep losing yourself in friends and lovers, and keep getting hurt if you have to. What you’re after is worth fighting for.
