Day 22 - Abandoning the little girl (An Unexpected Crush)

Nov 1, 2010

They are called crushes for a reason. Will likely write more over a glass of wine tonight, but for now.

Somehow - eye contact, new friendship, and the unexpected attention of someone who is totally not your type can quickly evolve into a distracting crush. The question is though - like others, once you've actually made contact and spent more time together - will it simply end in disruptive flames? Should you just keep the mystery and let the heart beat faster at the thought - or is it worth the risk?

This may be a case where the previously un-hurt little girl rushes in to play with a new friend but the woman who's been bruised and broken isn't sure just how sage approaching something new could be. Who gets to play in this situation? How do you learn from your past without being burdened by the fear of repeating it?
