Ever get stuck into a situation that demands your attention but you deliberately stay out of it cause you don’t want to be stuck into that whirlpool again where you go round and round and nothing makes sense, is something that requires great courage.
I have been in that situation where my heart wants me to jump in and respond and give my reply and tell my side of the story. But I am holding back. I don’t want myself to get into that post liking game for posting in response to others, that thing is mind-fucking. It’s like you like my post and then I’ll like yours and we continue into this bizarre pattern. You can know instantly when someone posts something that’s for you, it’s like radar, you just know it. Even though that post doesn’t include your name or mention you, it’s the little similarities in art, the time period, those captions that emasculate entire feelings. It’s like a light bulb and you know when it lights up.
So why should I restrain myself from getting into it when I know it’s been posted to trigger me into doing something about it. Well for first I don’t want to be part of that game again where instead of being honest we stay back and hide behind the barrier of social media and misunderstand everything. Cause a lot of the time, things we mean to stay get interpreted in the wrong way. Secondly, if you are genuinely interested that say so, it’s not the teen years of our life where we just give hints and keep things uncomplicated. The more you run away from these complex decisions, the more sleepless nights of overthinking will they give you. Sometimes you don’t leave things up to time, sometimes the universe wants you to be bold enough and step up and make your mind, it’s then the things align. And lastly, you don’t want to be played again for your feelings when the other party isn’t serious enough.
What we need to understand is that when someone really wants you in their life, they will make an effort for it and prioritize you instead of hiding behind excuses. So yeah stay away even if your heart is into it, just hold back and don’t react, at least for your self-dignity.
