If it's so good...

I often wonder why people put so much into other people; outside of the whole common decency, and it's what God asked for of course.  Why is it that when we meet or see someone we find to be extraordinary, we kind of lose our marbles?  It's like all of a sudden, everything goes all blurry and you don't know your left from that other direction.  And Lord help you if you put all that emotion and thought into that person and there's no reciprocity (thank you Lauryn Hill).  Slightly confusing how you think you're doing the right thing, and then it call goes haywire.  I think we learn so much from these moments.  We learn that we can be vulnerable and still be strong.  In fact, strength makes these vulnerable moments an even tougher pill to swallow.  Also the vulnerability can eventually make us stronger.  When you put yourself out there, there are two ways it can go: blooming success or massive failure.  I haven't really thought about a middle ground because I've never really come across that sacred place between sadness and adulation.  I wish there was some way to put yourself out there without being out there.  A way to get all your emotions out without the risk of being exposed.  It's baffling how being completely honest can mess things up.  I know I blogged before about the virtues of honesty, but here's one of the drawbacks.  You are at the complete and utter mercy of the person you're being honest with.  So, what to do, what to do.  Go for it, my fear of risks be derned.  You never know what may happen.  Even if something bad happens, you'll become better for it.
