To Tell Or Not To Tell

There is a young man who I've known for about six years and I'd say we're fairly good friends. About two years ago i began to care for him more than just a friend would and that feeling has been growing to the point where I'd call him my first young love. Yes, I am young but I'm also old enough and experienced enough to tell the difference between "liking" a person and really caring for them. This young man is probably the most wonderful, inspiring and amazing person I have ever met. He's so different from every other guy out there that he just shines like the sun. I honestly and truly care for him. I, being shy and extremely discreet with my feelings and emotions, have never been able to let him know how i feel. He's in the army and will be leaving for the Middle East within the next month. Now my feelings are stronger than ever, knowing i wont see him again for quite some time. More than anything i want to tell him EVERYTHING but i just don't how he'll respond to that and I don't want my heart to break. But then I think, "Who knows when I'll see him again? What if i never get to tell him how I feel?". Whenever i think of it that way, I know I'll hate myself if I let him go acorss the world thinking I never cared. Yet, I still question if I should reveal all. I just don't what to do. 3

Tell him! :)

Trust your instincts to tell you what to do. Life is too short. No sense in holding back. Ask yourself, do you want to go to the grave with unlived lives in your veins?
