So you like someone. And you’ve told them you like them. And this person happens to be your friend. And through some miraculous act of fate, they like you back.
You both know there is no future, you both know one person likes the other more, you both know that it’ll take the other person a while to get there, you both know that by the time they get there it might be a bit late. What do you do?
Do you take it slow and see where things go? Or do you call time of death on something that hasn’t even been given the chance to live and blossom? If you take it slow, how exactly do you navigate from being friends to being more? How do you convince yourself to stop being scared? How do you look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘Just let the fear go’?
Can you let go of the fear? What if things go south and the amazing connection you have with this person goes down the crapper? And all because you couldn’t keep a lid on yourself.
And what if, the worst thing you could ever imagine happens? What if your biggest fear gets realised? What if they don’t actually like you, and they’re just under some sort of obligation to try because they’re your friend.
I don’t think I’m the only one who has faced such a situation and by reading this post, you can imagine which of the two people I am.
This was just me rambling and letting out my deepest fears. Well, may be not all but at least some of them.
Can anyone relate?
Until next time
Live long and prosper.
May the Force be with you.
