:: on guard ::

There are some things that you just don’t think about. Until someone else mentions it to you. Drops a hint. Tells it to your face. Whatever. But the fact is, now you know. Oh, you know.

I’ve always been an advocate for…’if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it’.

Heck, ‘if you’re not sure if what you say is gonna be nice, don’t say it either’.

But, that doesn’t really happen in real life, does it? Freedom of speech is too…free. In this case, however, i’m glad this was brought up.

I really wouldn’t have thought about it otherwise. After all, if you’re friends with someone, you would kinda BE yourself with them. Correct? After all, that’s how they know who you are. What you like and dislike. Your characteristics. Your pet peeves. Your…thoughts about issues that matter…and issues that don’t. Friends allow you to speak your mind..and not be judged for it.

So what happens if…speaking your mind…or acting as if you have no ‘guard’, crosses an unseen boundary? An unknown one, even.

It’s a balance, isn’t it? One i can’t find right now cause i’m torn between…wanting to be familiar. And…not wanting to…make people misunderstand my actions or words. How cautious is too cautious? Sigh, it’s a hard-knock life. I’m always getting myself into these scrapes. And it seems that, i never learn.

How could you give your love to someone else…and share your dreams with me? – Save the Best for Last, Vanessa Williams

That finally makes sense.

Note to self : Boys and girls CAN’T be best friends. You can grow to be so. But you can’t stay that way, unless you’re ready to take it to the next level…when E takes M for better or worse.
