Somebody please tell me when.

When is it appropriate that we complain about “misfortunes”? Sometimes we don’t realize that our “misfortunes” may be incomparable to how another person who isn’t as fortunate as us sees “misfortunes”, or even “hardships.” Or is it never okay? When is it appropriate that we rejoice in our achievements? There comes a point when rejoice turns into boast. But it still holds true that we’ve worked hard towards our goals. Or should we all just revel in our success within our own realm of thoughts? When is it appropriate for love to grow? The thing about love is that it requires risk-taking on both sides of the relationship. We need to be able to risk that we may ultimately end up complete strangers, and take the pain as it comes. We need to be able to risk by allowing somebody to get close to us. We need to be able to risk disclosing our true feelings while not being aware of how the other feels. How do we know certain people will end up the dearest people in our lives, and how do we know certain people will end up tearing our lives apart? The thing is, we don’t. But does that mean we need to be reserved and never let the feeling of affection develop?

TELL ME WHEN.
