A crush is like a new baby; The person having the baby is excited about it, yes, but they are also afraid. Afraid to tell people about something that isn’t definite. I know, you’re probably thinking “but it’s in the mother’s stomach, it exists.” Yes it may exist there, but it hasn’t come out of her womb yet and proven to people that it lived, and wasn’t a miscarriage baby, or a still birth baby. A still birth and miscarriage are definitely way worse than telling someone about your crush and it not turning into anything or not having the person like you back, but I feel that the emotions of fear of it not working out, correlate to each other in a way. I feel that the other parties involved in the excitement can make it worse if it doesn’t work out. Imagine you have this crush, they’re amazing, and you just can’t wait to tell people about them. So you decide to tell your friends, they think it’s cool and then when you hang out with your crush your friends make little side comments about you two liking each other. It’s all fun and games, but now think of the crush not working itself out into becoming anything because they liked someone else the whole time. Wouldn’t that make you feel more defeated, opposed to if you kept it to yourself? I guess I’m just a little more insecure about those things, because I don’t want to feel foolish. These feelings probably vary from person to person, but it’s just how I sort of feel.
“A special moment imprinted in your mind stays as your moment, until you share it with others”
You can keep the thought unchanged in your kind, but when you tell someone else it becomes a thought that you’ve shared with someone else. It changes into a thought they can have to, where they express their thoughts about your special moment. They can make the moment turn into a thought that you can no longer keep as your own fantasy.
