i'm just a boy trying to find his way in the world while staying true to who he is.
This is all I can think of when I listen to ‘Brightest Morning Star.’

What is Love?

I’ve been single for a while now…over two years to be quite honest. That has me thinking, at what point in life do you give up on love? I’m not saying that I’m done with the hopes of finding someone…not yet, at least. I haven’t been in a rush to get so serious with anyone, but sometimes I still think that it would be nice to have someone by my side to share certain moments with. How do you even find someone these days? Technology has made things so confusing. People either want to hook up or they are geographically unattractive. Are my standards so high that I am pushing people away before I even get to know them?  

I’ve seen love do some crazy things to friends. They become people that I hardly recognize. Love can turn people into the ugliest creatures. Is it worth it? After all of the tears have dried and the heart mends itself, would you want to go through the same feelings again at some point in your life? 

I am done trying to hold onto the past, because nothing good can come from things that were not meant to be. So many of my friends are looking for love, but are they truly happy and love themselves enough to share that with another person? I love myself and have grown more comfortable with who I am. I know that I’m not normal. I speak in funny accents for no apparent reason. I make jokes that aren’t funny but crack me up. I say inappropriate things that upset people. I honestly, for one of the first times in my life, can say that I love the person that I am, but that doesn’t mean that I’m ready to settle down with anyone, unless the right person came along.
