Afraid to love


When a friend asked me if I’m afraid to love, without any shilly-shallying I replied "NO". And had a thought again, if I'm not really afraid then why... well I’m pretty and pretty damn smart… haha!

Yes, I have been disappointed in the past, shattered, and hurt... you know;p, but I don't think "hurt" is really not a bad thing for one main reason that I've learned a lot of hell about it, it is somehow a part of who I am now, a great force that shaped my personality. However, having said that I'm pretty sure that I’m more cautious now, not on falling in love but finding/choosing the right one, beside I’m getting old, right?

You, are you afraid on falling in love?

Anyway leaving you with some love quotes:

'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. -Alfred Lord Tennyson

Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart. - Washington Irving

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all - Samuel Butler

That's All!

I'm afraid to NOT fall in love.
Some people shirk away from love because they're afraid of the potential pain.
I however believe that life shouldn't be about running away from pain but about chasing after true happiness.
Now that I'm happily married I guess it is more appropriate to say that I am afraid NOT to continue loving.

It is better to have loved and lost than live forever with a psycho. hahaha!
