    A few weeks ago, this person

    who I just met had an impact on me.. We don't talk anymore, but he brought up that I don't know what I want, and it did in fact bring me to the reality I was so desperately trying to detach from. Do I really know what I want? The answer to that, no. I don't. I don't know what I...

    I've never quiet known what I've wanted.

    I get sooo close to some people than I shut them out completely. It's so strange, it's like the flame dies. I don't want it to but one day I could feel like I would move mountains for this person than the next I don't even want him to look at me. I love the chase, having what I...

    Why am I so confused?

    Maybe not knowing what I want is related to...wait a. Minute it IS related to being fearful of making a decision and not knowing it's outcome. What if I'm wrong? What if I'm not seeing things clearly? I don't want to walk away but staying is draining me. What if I'm right?! What...

    This guy i know is beautiful.

    Not a lot people think so but I do . He sat next to me and we talked but I wanted to leave because I couldn't bear it. Yet when I left i regretted not making an effort. I think he is attractive but surely we would of hit it of by now? I've spoken to him ( long convos ) twice

    I seriously don't know what I want from life.

    I'm happy, but I'm not sure this is for me. I really don't know where I will be in say, 10 years?? Will I still be in the same situation? Only time will tell I suppose
