Really, is it better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all?
I think of it when I see my ex's girlfriend.
I think of it when I watch a show we loved.
(more) I think of it every day, a few times a day, sometimes endlessly.
I think of it even after seven months of no contact.
Better to have loved and lost than never loved at all?
You keep the love and save me the loss. (less)
Too enthusiastic about your love life:
The woman you've been pining after for three years finally invites you into her bed. She asks you what you want. You don't know what to say. You don't say anything. You bite. And the bite bruises.(more)
Too enthusiastic about your career:
Finally, FINALLY, the CEO of your firm dies. You've been at this company for, what is it now, 29 years? It's your time. You deserve this. You stay up all night, practicing the answers to interview questions. At 541am, your body quits. You fall asleep. You sleep through your alarm. You miss your interview.
Too enthusiastic about fictional characters:
You start a new TV show. This show has six season. You learn everything you can about these characters, so much that they become a part of your life. They become a part of your family. The people in your real life you no longer understand. It feels as if you've lost the ability to connect to people.
You lost things you've never had.
You didn't know it was possible to feel so burned out.
