As we age we devolpe more and more defence mechanisms to protect our true feelings from coming through. Why is that? Part of it is your not 25 anymore and life has beaten you up pretty good. For many they have been in relationships for years and it’s comfortable so why rock the boat? My question is why not? There are certain people you meet in life that you just want to have them lay their head on your lap so you can hear their hopes,dreams, and fears. You don’t understand why this is happening but it is and you may never understand. Yes those feelings are scary but do want to always what to wonder if you had just followed your feelings what great things could have happened? The choice is up to you. You never know that the other isn’t feeling the same way!
