When we’re young we think we know what love is. We fall in love with everyone who’s willing to “love” us back. But as we get older.. It gets harder to love & harder to find love. Maybe we been hurt too many times.. leaving us with no hope of finding it. Some are lucky & find that person. Basically what I’m trying to say is, as I’ve grown older I’ve come to realize I shut myself off. I’ve learned how to. I know how to turn my emotions completely off before I get hurt. You know how they say “just pretend you don’t care”? Well.. I don’t pretend anymore. I know how to not care if i shouldn’t. You can call me cold hearted. You can call me shallow. Call me whatever. I feel like if I care about something/someone I shouldn’t, I’m weak. I don’t want to be weak. I’ve learned to control my life. So when someone tells you “it’ll take time to heal” don’t take them for granted. Because they’re not lying to you. You will get hurt. But eventually you will learn how to manipulate your emotions.
