“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman
Everyone says that they want to fall in love, but I don’t. I hate it. I hate the vulnerability that it makes me feel and the power it gives my love interest. I hate how he now knows me so intimately that the slightest change in his facial expression, touch, speech, eyes spirals me through a series of emotional highs and lows. I hate that when our love falls apart I feel absolutely devastated. I hate falling in love because I don’t know where it is going, but without love I am nothing.
