    A Complicated Emotion

    Long ago I would have defined love as a feeling...a positive emotion. Love meant a rapid heart-beat, sweaty palms, and stuttered words. Love meant happiness, a heart bursting with affection. Love meant caring and compassion, and putting someone else above yourself. Love meant...

    Love is so fxckxng complicated.

    It hurts my heart; it hurts my brain. Where the fxck did I go wrong? Did I give too little? Did I give too much? Am I overreacting? Is this normal? If it is, then...well, love kind of sucks somtimes.

    Intimate Love
