    Sometimes I Wish, But Only Sometimes.

    When a crush lasts too ridiculously long, without resolution; when I should have stopped thinking about her two weeks ago, for my own good, because we haven't made a connection; when my thinking about her no longer provokes the butterflies in my stomach and tingles up my spine...

    I Wish My Brain And Heart Could Agree

    I just wish that every once in a while my brain and heart would be in agreement. Instead I'm consumed by the never ending rival between what my heart feels, and what my brain is telling me I should do. Their arguing drives me crazy.

    Gods Yes.

    There would be so much less internal conflict if one or the other could simply...take over sometimes. Problem is, they both want what they want...which is usually the complete opposite.   Brain will be telling me to "Be logical. This doesn't compute, and you're only going to...

    I am in love. He loves me

    and he loves her. This would be fine, if she wasn't his long ago ex and still in love with him too...and she didn't mentally abuse him. I am completely over rationalism and I want to confront her. I'm afraid of the consequences. My heart is numb.

    Would Be Nice

    I've always followed my heart, and it has usually led exactly where I thought it would. I would really like it if I could get my heart to listen to what my mind is saying.
