    Often Wondered...

    I spent years wondering exactly how love feels. Does it feel the same as if you were in lust? If not, what is it akin to?... I think I know the answer. I think it feels like you are happy most when you're around them, and you want to share your lives and dreams. It is a feeling...

    To Have Loved and Lost...

    As they say, is better than to have never loved at all. To which some say 'try it.' Well... I would not be the person I am today without the experiences that shape me, including having loved greatly - and lost that love. The feeling of having that love... is like none...

    I wonder what its like to have that neural pathway that integrates pain and fear destroyed. The ability to be invincible and resistant to human nature's weaknesses. *Sighs*

    Sadly. I read somewhere that those who recover from homelessness have a high risk of being made so again. This does not make me feel confident for the future.
