vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means
someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these
defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing could
hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid
person, wanders into your stupid life. . .you give them a piece of
you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss
you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love
takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you
crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like
"maybe we should just be friends" or "how very perceptive" turns into
a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just
in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a should-hurt,
a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
I hate love.
For those that have been rejected, but still love somebody: If you are friends with each other now, don't worry about it. If you truly love them, they will see it in your actions and very well may grow to love you. Just don't let go of hope.
For those that are in love, but don't know how to tell her/him: Just tell them. There is no simpler path to take. If you are alread BF/GF, then that is wonderful. Find a nice place to just sit down and talk, just tell them. But if you are not BF/GF, DO NOT COME HEAD ON AND CONFESS TO THEM, THIS IS THE MISTAKE I MADE, WE ARE FRIENDS BUT I DOUBT IT WILL BE ANYTHING MORE. PLEASE, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO END UP LIKE ME, BECOME HER/HIS BF/GF FIRST BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING!!
Love affects any age. I will repeat this one: Love affects ANY age. I know that some people say things like "Oh he's just 13, he can't love." That isn't true. Some people are more emotionally mature than others. Just because some kids haven't been in love doesn't mean it isn't possible at their young age. I completely encourage all ages to not hide this feeling, telling someone about your love for the person, normally a best friend of the opposite sex is the best option.
Alejandra, I love you unconditionally and I always will until the day I die.

love is holding onto them like tomorrow will never come.
