There’s this longing in the middle of the night that I’m pretty sure 97% of the female population feels at least three times a week. The feeling of wishing someone was in bed next to you holding you tight, playing with your hair, slowly rubbing your skin. And majority of the time we (girls) have in our head exactly who we want it to be. And for me personally I like to think this person feels some sort of weird ESP shit, like he KNOWS I’m thinking about him which then leads to him thinking about me or if he’s sleeping and I’m thinking about him so hard I just make sweet little cameo in his dreams. Whatever the case may be I hope and I pray that the person I think about before I fall asleep each night thinks of me too. Anyways – usually that person you think about means a great deal to you. It’s someone you WANT in your life. Someone you feel safe with. Someone who you might be okay with seeing you drool in your deepest sleep. But how on Earth can you let that person know, “YO I’m digging you.” Like HOW? I’ll tell you how, you just do it. (gasp) Yea, it’s totally almost completely impossible. Being honest has become so hard for most of us; the feeling of being vulnerable is terrifying. But how can you love without being vulnerable? That’s what love is all about, opening yourself up for someone and trusting it’ll all turn out how it should. If you’re not honest, if you don’t say what you need to say, nothing will change and you’ll forever be lying in that bed of yours alone, with maybe a cat … or five. So go ahead and tell that person you think they’re super rad, take that risk and maybe something good will come of it. And if it totally blows up in your face, cry a little, be bummed, but be glad because now you know.
