Hello Again so soon Dear Readers, Dearhearts, and Soon to be Dearhearts! I have had some SUPER DUPER EXCITING things happening lately, and there’s even more to come! One of those exciting things involves answering another letter for Love Advice! Let me tell you Dear Readers, I am SO HAPPY that you come to me with your questions! And I’m happy to be able to provide you a place where you can even ask the questions. Before I get all carried away in the euphoria, let’s get right down to the romance reveal.
I’ve thought of writing to the column many times, but just as many I’ve ended up just scrapping the letter… but no more!
I don’t know how to phrase it better but, how do I stop being scared of romantic relationships? I thought loosing my freedom was the reason, but thanks to a couple of friends I found out that it doesn’t have to be like that and that and that and there are people out there sharing my views on commitment… so, I’ve been left with a lot of thinking and the conclusion is that I’m just scared of getting my heart broken?
How do I change that and get over the wall that makes romance oh so scary?
A reader who really wants to fall in love (a butterfly decal was posted here)
I’m very grateful you didn’t scrap your letter this time, My Dearest lovely reader, how wonderful it is to actually -want- to fall in love! That, my dear, is actually… a really good first step. When you open your heart, then you’re more apt to find what it is you’re looking for. But how do you stop being scared? In a cocoon… you don’t. Love is a scary thing. Letting yourself be vulnerable around someone else is a scary thing. Opening yourself up, letting out all the little flits and floats that are you and allowing them to be seen.. is a scary thing. That isn’t to say though that -once you’re with someone-, it is still scary. On the contrary, really! When you find someone who is the flower to your butterfly, then things start to weave into place.
Love absolutely does not have to be like that – and that- and that. It is what you make of it, what you want it to be. Each and every one of us are different, and that’s why it can often be so difficult and possibly even overwhelming to find someone who absolutely does believe and feel and strive for the same love goals as our own. But they -are- out there. Yes, flitting around and testing the nectar here and flowing on the breeze there can and often times will get our heart (or even in my case, my nose…) broken, though that just means that when we -do- find what it is we’re looking for, it is all that much sweeter!
So how do you change being scared? There is no remedy. The thing we have to keep in mind when we decide to go on this journey is that, through trial and error, we will at some point find the romance best fitting with us. I am rooting for you, Dear Reader. I feel it in my wings, you will find that one to fall in love with! Keep your heart open.
Another exciting thing happening is that soon I’ll be writing some articles about the up and coming Valentione’s times! Yes, I know what you’re thinking – Wes, that’s still about a moon away! Though.. it isn’t. It is -less than a moon- away, Dear Readers! The Staff of the Daily Moogle are getting together to throw some information out that is sure to cater to everyone and their specific Has A Date, Wants A Date, or Please I Just Want To Avoid It All date needs! Keep a watch for those articles coming from myself and my colleagues.
And last, but never ever EVER least, thank you for writing to me, Flower. My heart soared higher than even my wings can take me! This Butterfly Man hasn’t been without a smile since receiving the letter, and it is sure to just grow and grow and grow in size in the suns to come! Until then, and until next time, take care of your hearts Dear Readers, Dearhearts, and Soon to be Dearhearts!
