The Secret teller would also like to say.

“ I keep wondering why it's so easy for everyone else, but impossible for me. Is it pride or insecurity, or both?”

Love is weakness. It distracts you from normal life and causes often more hurt than ignorance than it does hapiness. But that is if you know nothing of love and real decency.

If you know, then it could go both ways. If your confident than it could mostly be a win. A reason to live and be healthy; And more that cannot be explained in words.

If you cannot comprehend than do not deem this stupid but it IS an opinion

I like the look of this.. the message is nice.. Personally, I would say that backwards.. Love is almost cowardly and a weakness, a fear of being alone, while not needing anyone is sometimes high ground for rejects to find salvation of sorts.. because love never offers any

(not to steal your thunder or be contrarian.. this is really good, and speaks to a lot of people :nod:)

"Is it pride or insecurity..."

I'm pretty sure its pride.

Love is strength, not weakness,but confessing it takes all the strength that it gives you to overcome to fears.

This is actually very true to how I am. People see me as a very strong and independent person. But I'm in my early 20's and I've never had a serious romantic relationship or gone on what you could call a real date. I have a problem opening up to people, and in that, I am deemed unapproachable. People tend to be afraid of me or think I hate them when I don't. All of this because I don't want to open myself to others and be hurt in the process.

I don' have the balls to take a chance and make the first move because I don't like to make myself weak and open for the hurt when they will reject. I am prideful and I don't want anyone to see a shred of weakness in me. This makes me really angry and I am trying like hell to fix this. To truly connect with people, you have to be open be weak. Love can be seen as a weakness. But true strength is taking the time to be weak in face of someone you care for, and then to deal with the pain if they ever hurt you.

To all those who say someone admitting this is a weak emo, you don't know how much it takes to come to terms with something like this. If this person is willing to change this, it will be a hard fix.

A live to satisfy my curiosity (mostly in astronomy) and to experience the everyday, not to satisfy any hate.
If anything, the person who posted this "secret" may very well be expressing self hate.

Too common and too easy... Like an emo teenager who thinks that he is special and unique...
For the one who think that : don't be so vainglorious, don't think at the place of the others if you don't belong with them
Love is not a weakness it's painfull sometimes and it's not easy for everyone else but it makes you strong and everybody NEED it to construct themselves.

what a pathetic poster, although one thing is true, construct of "love" as weakness and compromising structural deficit. chances are that one day humankind shall purge emotions from its brain to allow intellect flourish. for some reason you put this link to suicide prevention - but why do you care about weaklings? considering overpopulation it is not healthy to increase lifespan of waste that is highly affected by mental disorder known as "love" or any other - unless his intellectual predispositions are beneficial for further tech development ( but such people would not use this page anyway )

Funny I find this now, some might call it fate, others may call it cruel, yet others would call it chance. Love is a dangerouse emotion, such emotions so true don't have words enough to describe them and can kill someone with gentelness and warmth.

It's not a pride nor insecurity.
It is a deep fear actually.
And it's pretty obvious if you think it's through.

did i post this in my sleep or something? I can relate to this a lot. growing up i refused to like anyone i thought it was a bad thing somthing to be ashamed of. Not because i was intentionaly conditioned this way but the people with crushes and such were always picked on and made fun of and got their feelings hurt, so i never allowed myself to even be seen with a boy [this was back in elementary when we were to young to understand other orientations] as i got older i went through a phase where i thought everyone around me was a stupid ignorant naive waste of space and i hated them for being so happy while i "knew too much" to live life normally-at this time i swore away my heart and never got close to anyone besides the friends i already trusted. in my more recent life, i've come to except my heart back to me. i still can't date guys. maybe i'm gay and its that simple but i absolutely cannot bring myself to trust them or be seen with them because its too embarrassing. I've never even been with someone to have a bad experience. I finally dated a lovely girl for a few months but distance and my own resignated heart ended it. why didn't it hurt me? did i never truly love her at all? can i love? or am i flawed?

love is not a weakness it in powers you if any thing if it is TRUE love even if the other dose not see it the same patients will solve your problem trust me I've seen the ups and of love and it is a hard road to follow but that make your love all the more stronger you wounder if its pride, insecurity, or both well only you can answer that one but all i CAN tell you is pride it brings you up if it dose not workout so to say and insecurity if you feel insecure ween going to ask well it simply means that he/she is the one so don't be ashamed of your insecurity or your pride and one more thing maybe its because your looking for love you don't look for love love looks for you.

Love is... Quite a complicated emotion. It has its ups and downs...
Personally, I'm not into the whole love deal... But I still know what it's like to be rejected. The only reason I was rejected was because I waited too long to confess.
So, here's what I say: Confess before it's too late.

It wasn't easy at first, at all.

You need to get used to the anxiety of the fear of rejection.

It... makes you a stronger person...

I assure you that love isn't easy. It appears to be so because most of the people you see are in the 'Honeymoon' stage of their relationship, where everything is perfect for just a while. When things get too hard, people chicken out and don't tough through it with the person they 'love.' Fine someone you know will love you for you, even when it's hard to love others and even yourself. I've known this from experience. I cannot say that me and my boyfriend have had very many trials and tribulations, but the few that we did with our rocky beginning has made it all the better, knowing that he won't run away when things get hard.

Love is not easy. I've been in a long term dating relationship for the past eleven years with the same guy. We've had our ups and downs but it was never easy.

You'll find someone. Some people were into their forties and fifties before they found someone. It's a matter of patience.

I normally hate these as well, but I'm actually kind of pleased with this one- at least it's not just some shitty MS paint job with zero effort, there's actually some decent color, composition, and a bit of typography going on there. It's not fucking ugly, you know? Like, someone tried to make this artistic in some way, which is a far cry more than we could say for any other of these secrets.
