Put it all out there.

August 29, 2008

in high school when you liked someone, you wrote them a note telling them.

in college when you like someone, you make out with someone else, just to make that person jealous.

when are we going to stop and realize what we really want? when are we going to stop playing around with our hearts? The thing that boggles my mind is that we have all these earthly possessions. we walk around protecting our cars, protecting our possessions, but when are we going to start protecting our hearts? we walk around and act like nothing is breaking our hearts - but it is. we date who other people think are cute. we date who other people find acceptable. but when are we going to start doing what we want, what we need?

We can get new cars, and new houses, and new things, but once our heart breaks - that's it. I really feel like as 21 year olds, were not supposed to have our hearts broken like so many of us do.

Take me for example, my heart was broken in a way I never thought possible. My roommates and best friends have all had their hearts broken in ways unknown to anyone else. It just makes me sad that we take every worldly possession into higher consideration then we do our own hearts.

I don't want to be cynical and say, “don't ever let anyone in” but maybe its time, we stop trying to find happiness in everyone else, and find happiness in ourselves.
