the real reason or an excuse?
“I am not really an expressive person.” Those are the words that pop-out of my mind when someone says “I like you” to me. And I am wondering. Why do I keep saying that? Why can’t I say those words back even though I feel the same way? Why? What is my reason for that?
I stop and think about it all the time. And it just hit me. Is that my excuse because when you say those words you are already somehow committing yourself to them?
The truth is, I’m scared. I’m scared of commitment. I’m scared of having to worry that you are not keeping the relationship good. I’m scared of disappointing someone and be disappointed. But all of these boils down to “I’m scared of getting hurt”.
