Hey, all. My Facebook status for this past week was the title of this post. No games. Just love. I was thinking about how we often hide how much we really care about our loved ones, and I wonder why it’s like that. I mean, if you love someone, he/she should know, right? Apparently not always.
If you have to guess what you mean to a person you deeply care about, if you keep the nature and extent of your emotions under wraps, if you play games to maintain the upper hand . . . it just seems pointless to me. It’s not business, it’s a friendship, a relationship. It’s personal.
Put yourself out there. It’s worth the risk. Win or lose, rise or fall, acceptance or rejection, you did it anyway. You weren’t afraid to let your feelings show. If you fear the other person might not value your openness, well, there’re valid reasons for such a concern. All I know is one ought to be comfortable sharing if the object of your affection is good for you, and I’m talking about all sorts of relationships here. I won’t go near business because, yeah, it’s governed by a different set of rules. But otherwise? Let them know, people. Let them know.
