Be careful when you allow your happiness to be affected by whether or not others are happy. One cannot control the thoughts and feelings of others, and so one can be put into a state of vulnerability. Be careful, and take care.
Sometimes my heart aches so much it feels like it’ll just stop working because I have so much love to give and so few people to give it to. I just want someone to give all my romantic affection that I’ve been bottling up since forever to because I just want someone to cherish and adore with all my heart and soul, and I want them to give the love and devotion they deserve.

Sonder would be an interesting topic to hear a poem about

A Russian Doll
Perched on a bus seat
That is how the world could view me
Inside of me is sadness
Inside sadness is fear
Inside fear is happiness
Inside happiness is so much more
So imagine my confusion
When I turn to the men and women
Who I suddenly find realisation
Are Russian dolls too.
Inside the auburn boy is sadness
Inside his sadness are his fears
Inside the curled lady is happiness
And inside her happiness
A world appears
The whole world’s made of wood
But I’m all who can hear
The clicks of my dolls
Inside my coat-hood

Hi greg! I met this person that makes me feel like im shining on the inside and I think about this person everyday. How to restore balance, leave these strong feelings and go back to my normal life?

Life brings about strong feelings. Embrace them. Your connection to all and to Life is in your feelings and sensations. They are impermanent, but aren’t something you should push away or wish away. Feelings are meant to be felt. Just feel them. You want balance but it is out of your control, ride the wave and feel. This is Life. This feeling won’t last and balance will come naturally. Try to just live and try to sense that these feelings are only brought out of you by this person, they come from you and CAN come to you without cause.

Take care,

~greg

Today I realized a lot of things. For example: I love my cat more than anyone or anything. I need new shoes. I should probably start reading more books because I want to continue expanding my knowledge and opening my mind. Life is short. Everything happens for a reason and you need to remember that. Apologizing doesn’t make you weak it makes you honest. There’s no reason to lie. Ever. People all have reasons for why they are the way they are but it’s not a viable excuse to be a prick. It’s okay to give trust out freely. Just recognize when it’s no longer deserved. Respect shouldn’t be earned it but disrespect should be. You should respect everyone until given a reason not to. Your mom telling you she loves you should always warm your heart. If she takes out the naked baby pictures let her. She put in the time and all that to deserve that simple pleasure. It’s okay that I have more than one father figure and it’s okay that I don’t look at them the same way. The ocean should be admired. The moon should be loved and the sun should be thanked. Always say I love you before hanging up the phone. Friends can say I love you. Tell people when they mean a lot to you. Learn from the stories people tell you. There’s always a lesson or message in someone else’s experiences. Take pictures. A lot of pictures. And share them. Someone somewhere will love them. If you’re in love tell them or someone else will. Don’t wait. Tomorrow may not be what you expect. Laugh. Who cares if it’s loud or obnoxious. Someone will smile because of it. Enjoy the silly moments because someday those memories may be all you have. Travel. Be reckless. Make a phone call. Cry if you need to cry. If you miss someone who has passed away. Talk to them out loud. Sing in the shower, car or kitchen. If you want another beer drink it. Smoking does cause cancer and it smells gross but some people enjoy it. Make sure to show your animals love. And every single day. Because you’re the single most important thing to them. Don’t make an excuse not to go on an adventure. It’s okay if you stay up late to FaceTime someone even if you have work early the next day. It’ll mean a lot to them. Smile when you feel the urge. Eat more fruit. Spend time with your best friend. Make sure she knows that you appreciate her and listen when she’s angry ranting because she’s going to remember that when you need someone later. Love her dog. Even though dogs aren’t your favorite. GO. Go to the beach. See a movie. Get out of the house even for an hour. Don’t avoid the rain. Chew gum. Drink water. Live life to the fullest. If something is bothering you, do something about it. Don’t wish later that you had told her how you felt or that you had gone fishing with your dad more. Try new things. Let people teach you. Give your heart away. Write a poem or draw a picture even if you don’t think you’re any good. Remember to love. Remember you’re beautiful. Respect each other. Just be yourself. And again tell your friends you love them. Everytime you talk to them.
—  Tell your best friend you love her.
Hallelujah

This song,

oh this song.

It makes me think of him,

makes my heart cry out for him.

Every time it plays,

and every time I sing along,

I sing for him.

Though he’s thousands of miles away,

off doing brave things while I stay doing homework,

I miss him.

This song brings back memories,

memories of being in his truck,

on our first date.

Of our second date,

with my friends,

the movie Sing,

and how as soon as it started playing,

he looked at me and grinned.

And throughout that movie,

I’d ‘dance’ in my seat to songs I knew.

He’d catch me and smile,

smile at me like I was the greatest.

It’s the little things that mean the most,

so they say,

so I say.

That look he gave me,

I’ve never seen it before,

not in that way,

and I never expected it from him.

There was so much I didn’t expect from him,

and I got much more than even that.

He’s my blessing in disguise,

my fighter,

my hero.

little things about the Dear Evan Hansen cast album

If she could pinpoint her feelings down to the point where she could explain them to someone, she would. But the thing is, feelings aren’t exactly stable objects, ones that you can hold down and classify as one thing over another. Her feelings were mood swings, lunging upwards and downwards the way roller coasters work. She searched within herself, trying to make sense of what she felt, only to find out that she was blindly pulling bits and pieces of her heart out, like a toy, at the same time refused to acknowledge what her mind already knew.
