Hi, My name is Abby and I have a curse

>> 3.17.2010

I thought I was past it.  My parents so proudly estimated at least 2 years.  But it looks like the 7 month curse is back and better than ever.  I've discussed this "relationship complex" that I have before, but here's a quick reminder:  I like things until they get real and the wall is broken down.  Then I proudly run away to find another wall to hide behind.  I've always been good at this.  The only things I haven't been able to run away from are my family (mostly because they will never leave me alone) and the things that aren't really real.  I fought to keep things the way they were- just friends.  If we were "just friends", he'd be the one I'd want to talk to right now.  But being angry, a female and in the process of running away means I can't.  And if we were "just friends", this curse wouldn't be back to get me.

I wonder what I'm really afraid of.  I've been hurt before, and pretty badly.  I get called names, I brush it off.  If you want a list of at least 10 people who have something bad to say about me, I'll proudly deliver.  I know that all good things might sooner or later come to an end.  I accept that I can't be obnoxiously optimistic every day, even when the sun is out.  I'm beginning to accept the fact that I can't make everyone happy and that not everyone is going to like me.  I wonder what makes this all so difficult.  I wonder what happened in my past that makes me react this way. If I knew what it was, there isn't a split-second I would waste before trying to go back in time and change it.  I wonder what it is that I have to lose.

So maybe you shouldn't look at why the realness of something scares you, but rather what you define as the opposite. Look at what you think is the opposite and

#1) ask yourself if that is something that is actually not real (for example: "it's just for fun", but relationships in general are supposed to be for some kind of fun otherwise they're not worth having), or

#2) ask yourself if you would want something like that? (for example: you put on an act so that you hide a part of yourself from somebody, which absolutely would not make a good relationship)

At least you don't have my curse, my curse is that I get bored after a month and a half. This one gets you no where.

It does make for some good stories though :)
