this morning in the car on the trip, my friend wrote on his phone every emotion ..feelings..he had for his girlfriend. everything he liked and disliked about her, why their relationship didn’t work out, why it was worth it, just every single feeling he felt.
i read all of his feelings and i started tearing up in the middle of the paragraph. silly me, he noticed and started laughing. i told him i can feel what you’re writing, that’s how you know when you’re a great writer. i became emotional because… i knew what he was feeling, i understood the pain he felt, it just brought back insecurities and memories.
everytime i get hurt by you, i wish i didn’t cared so much. if i didn’t care, then i wouldn’t feel the pain behind it. i wish i could turn off my emotions whenever i want.
