Late night reads.

There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs.

Biggest Regret

One question was asked to 50 people. People of all ages from different corners of the world brought up their biggest regrets. Some said they had none, which was the case because they said looking at mistakes as regrets will only swell you on the bad things in life. A few said not continuing education or knowing their grandparents were sick but never visited, but the most profound regret was along the lines of “not living life for joy”. A middle aged man whose regret was not living his life to the fullest and not taking a few more deep breaths to enjoy the moment reminded me of my biggest struggles—looking too far into things, being afraid to live in the moment and putting myself out there, in which I remain alone with a constant regret day after day. Deep within my heart, I know what I want. I’m a sucker for living in the moment, past is past we can never get it back, but the future is within our potential. I know for a fact that I enjoy making people happy which in turn makes me happy. I like creativity specifically with sports, filming, music, art, and journalism. I keep thinking. I keep saying. I keep dreaming, but I never keep trying to pursue. Such high probability in disappointing the people I love and myself: getting crushed by all the competition, not finding a job, or not making enough money. I keep giving myself excuses. My poor-self fights back with the reasons why the opposite would also be a disaster. Going into medical school gives me little to no time by the time I have a family, I would be wrapped up in working I see no way of escaping. But in return for meeting the right people who have similar interest, getting money for doing what I love, pursuing my heart with full desire and passion, experiencing life through art, I get lots and lots of cash. So now I’m asking myself which route will make me go to bed happy, which one is more important to me? My brother says "Be Realistic”, I say "You don’t know me well enough”.

Surround yourself with people who will motivate you to do what you love, not what makes them happy.

I think things are beautiful when you don’t plan them, and you don’t have any expectations, and you’re not trying to get somewhere in particular.

The first time I saw her..
Everything in my head went quiet.
All the ticks, all the constantly refreshing images just disappeared.

When you have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, you don’t really get quiet moments.

Even in bed, I’m thinking:

Did I lock the doors? Yes.
Did I wash my hands? Yes.
Did I lock the doors? Yes.
Did I wash my hands? Yes.

But when I saw her, the only thing I could think about was the hairpin curve of her lips..
Or the eyelash on her cheek—
the eyelash on her cheek—
the eyelash on her cheek.

I knew I had to talk to her.

I asked her out six times in thirty seconds.

She said yes after the third one, but none of them felt right, so I had to keep going.

On our first date, I spent more time organizing my meal by color than I did eating it, or talking to her..
But she loved it.

She loved that I had to kiss her goodbye sixteen times or twenty-four times at different times of the day.

She loved that it took me forever to walk home because there are lots of cracks on our sidewalk.

When we moved in together, she said she felt safe, like no one would ever rob us because I definitely lock the door eighteen times.

I’d always watch her mouth when she talked—
when she talked—
when she talked—
when she talked;
when she said she loved me, her mouth would curl up at the edges.

At night, she’d lay in bed and watch me turn all the lights off.. And on, and off, and on, and off, and on, and off, and on, and off, and on, and off.
She’d close her eyes and imagine that the days and nights were passing in front of her.

But then.. She said I was taking up too much of her time.

That I couldn’t kiss her goodbye so much because I was making her late for work..

When she said she loved me, her mouth was a straight line..

When I stopped in front of a crack in the sidewalk, she just kept walking..

And last week she started sleeping at her mother’s place.

She told me that she shouldn’t have let me get so attached to her; that this whole thing was a mistake, but..

How can it be a mistake that I don’t have to wash my hands after I touch her?

Love is not a mistake, and it’s killing me that she can run away from this and I just can’t.

I can’t go out and find someone new because I always think of her.

Usually, when I obsess over things, I see germs sneaking into my skin.
I see myself crushed my an endless succession of cars..
And she was the first beautiful thing I ever got stuck on.

I want to wake up every morning thinking about the way she holds her steering wheel..
How she turns shower knobs like she opening a safe.

How she blows out candles—
blows out candles—
blows out candles—
blows out candles—
blows out—….

Now, I just think about who else is kissing her.

I can’t breathe because he only kisses her once—he doesn’t care if it’s perfect!

I want her back so bad..

I leave the door unlocked.

I leave the lights on.

The person who tries to keep everyone happy often ends up feeling the loneliest.
