I first read yesterday’s Guy’s Story when it was published on Jackie Summer’s blog, F*cking in Brooklyn. I’ve been pondering ‘Mama’s Best Advice” ever since.
I’d say that, if I had to be honest, the 2 times I’ve been in love, I loved the guy more than he loved me. It wasn’t something I realized at the time. But looking back now, it’s pretty damn clear. And that that’s probably why I got so completely squashed both times. Because it just mattered so much more to me. I had way more at stake. I was completely invested, heart and soul. Willing to lose everything.
And then I did, lose everything.
I don’t know if I’ll ever fall in love again. It’s not one of those things that a girl has much control over. But if I do, I’m going to do my best to heed Mama’s advice and ‘NEVER give up the edge”.
