Feelings are a strange thing but can we control them? Can we switch them on and off? Do they control our lives? Are you afraid to tell someone how you feel about them? Are you afraid of finding out how someone feels about you?
I don’t think we can control our feelings. There are people I have feelings for that I wish I didn’t. One because I know that it will never happen and two if they found out things would be awkward. Sometimes you can find yourself in a situation where you think it would be so much easier if you had feelings for someone but you just can’t help not having those feelings.
I don’t think we can switch them on and off either. I do however, think that we can ignore feelings or just not act on them. They will be there for a time but you can’t switch it off. You end up thinking about it after the moment has gone. Well I do anyway.
Feelings control everything we do. If we don’t have a good feeling about something then we avoid doing it if we can. Likewise if we have a good feeling about something we try out best to make a success of it.
I’m always afraid of telling someone how I feel. I don’t want them to worry about me and with certain people I don’t want them to know. If everyone I liked knew I liked them I would never walk out my front door.
I’m not afraid of finding out how people feel about me. I would rather know because then you can talk about it with them and know where you both stand. Granted it could make things awkward between you and the other person but only if you let it. You can have a perfectly good friendship with someone even if you do have stronger feelings about them than they do about you.
Feelings are a funny thing. They can change so quickly but the important thing is to keep positive and if you think its right then tell someone how you feel.
