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.

For all of the naive and insecure people who wish to comment that this poster is pathetic and stupid- you would understand the true meaning of this poster if you could comprehend the only thing that ever kept you from dying was living to satisfy your hate.

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.
