I’ve seen and swam and climbed and lived and driven and filmed. Should it all end tomorrow, I can definitely say there would be no regrets. I am very lucky, and I know it. I really have lived 5,000 times over.
Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself.

I know it would be easier if the person would just tell the truth or say they are not interested at this time, but it’s just human nature to try to soften the blow. By the same token, feelings are still hurt with the truth or a lie. Getting the Brush Off isn’t easy or fun.
It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
