It’s so easy to convince ourselves of the wrong things, especially when it comes to dating, relationships, and sex.
Being a writer with food issues has me searching the Internet for all kinds of things, so when I saw the meme below on the Just Laugh’s Facebook page, I had to share it.
Over-thinking causes me to over-complicate things often. I mean, I’ve spent weeks trying to figure out if a wink and smile is something more by reading Your Tango articles and other such drivel and… Well, I’ve realized I need to stop doing that.
I think it’s better to just find a way to show interest and see what happens next.
I know convincing yourself to be something you aren’t isn’t the way to go ever. But people often try to be someone they aren’t when they like someone rather than admit they might not be compatible in the least. I used to do that. It never worked out well.
Here’s the meme before I completely lose you.
Anyway, this morning I decided to pull out my Gryffindor courage and be clear about my feelings. Life is complicated enough, so I don’t need to add to it.
I’m also being unapologetically me these days. I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, South Park, Wonder Woman, martial arts, video games, TV/movies, and music. I’m an ambitious writer and I swear more than I probably should. I also like reading when I have the time. I’m Christian, but I’m relaxed about it. I believe it’s entirely possible to admit you have a weakness without letting that define who you are or who you will be. Sometimes I love really deep philosophical conversations and sometimes I love less intense talks. I prefer balance over extremism. I think all 3 major political parties suck in this country. I believe people focus too much on what makes us different from each other rather than just showing each other love and kindness.
A simpler version? I’m just going to be me. I think this works for this marital arts grading too. I’m going to try my best.
I’m off to do the last few things I need to before leaving town.
Guid cheerio the nou,
