Too bad, so sad

I think one of the saddest things I’ve seen is when people really love someone or want something, but because of their fear of showing their vulnerability, they refuse to show or share it. Some people only seem able to reveal true emotions or love when they’re drunk, which leads the recipient of that revelation doubting the sincerity. Some never reveal it. What a waste of precious time! As if they have an unlimited supply of hours and opportunities in their life to somehow catch up. As if there will always be another chance or another love. So sad. As for me, I learned long ago that foolish pride should never be more important than love. Making sure that the one I love never has to wonder or doubt how I feel. Does it make me weak to admit it? Hell no. It means I’m so freaking strong that I can handle being vulnerable.

Are you saying you're weak, strong, pressed for time or drunk? Why don't we start all over again sweetheart

I've been lucky to know love in my lifetime.
7 years. It was beautiful. Rough but beautiful.
Put everything on the line.
Worth the fight(s).
Glad I got to experience it.

It really isn’t that complicated. Perhaps you’re just lacking the necessary number of appropriate neural synapses to comprehend it, sweetheart.

But... But...

It's not like it's completely unfathomable that their fear of showing vulnerability could be a direct result of multiple lessons learned from showing or sharing said vulnerability.

You may have shed that foolish pride, but this confession oozes with narcissistic pride

Are you going to confess your true feelings to the one you love ?
Or is this just a hypothetical post for fun ?

It was more about how people with abandonment issues push people away and how sad it is when you fall in love with someone like that. The GS didn’t publish it for some reason but I agree with your post.

Used to think this way

But then I realized I was existing inside of a cliche bouquet and that my foolish pride was not so foolish after all.

In fact, it was trying to send important signals urging me to get out and sort out my own shit rather than manipulate someone else into living out the flawed fairytale that was playing out in my head.
