Humans are wierd!!!
You wish to say something to someone - something personal, special, reciprocative, acknowledging. But then we don't for umptine reasons. On the otherhand those who speak out get the badge of being brash blah ... blah ... blah.
The former live their lives for tomorrow, which is uncertain and end up missing that which they shouldn't have let past. The excuses are as much variegated as well, from just buying time, to avoiding confrontation, to burying things unsaid to being friggin afraid of the outcome. They loose some moments when they have nothing to loose. In time they look back earning for that lost moment.
The later live their life the very moment, projection to tomorrow being their ideal rathen than living in anticipation. They never loose that which belongs to them, and let go of that which does not.
What do you do?
