Lately, my inner heart has been in turmoil. It’s like she is sailing the seven seas, and only recently noticed a small leak in her boat. The leak is small, she says. We will be fine, she says. And it’s only too soon before water comes roaring into the boat, and we have to escape with our lives.
Okay, maybe a little melodramatic, but still.
I’ve been struggling with the issue whether I should tell my friend how I feel about him.
The benefits of telling him? He might think of me in the same way.
However, I really doubt this And it seems like the negatives outweigh the positives.
Possible problems that may arise if I tell him? I get hurt because he doesn’t feel the same way. I might lose his friendship, or be forever doomed to avoid him or act awkward around him.
I want to stay his friend, no matter how he feels.
But I feel like if I am rejected point blank, I might need some distance.
Above all, I don’t want to make him feel bad for however I may react with his answer.
So how do I go about telling him? Or should I keep my mouth shut?
