You could… but would you?

You could love me for who I was,
or you could love me for who I am.

You could love me for how I looked,
or you could love me for how I look.

You could love me for my talk,
or you could love me for my walk.

You could love me for my loyalty,
or you could love me for my beauty.

You could love me for the shine in my eyes,
or you could love me for the smoothness of my thighs.

You could love me for all of these,
or you could love me for none of these.

But the question is,
would you love me at all?

Or would you turn your back and walk away
when you see me..
the real me?

Would you dare to still love the messy hair?
or the chubby face?
or the tomboy look?
or the fat on my body?

You could… but would you?

    “what ifs” lost in a sea of possibilities. Yet if you never take the first dip into the sea of possibilities by revealing yourself, you will never know if the other party would still love you the same or whether they would not. Perhaps, the uncertainty of the outcome causes us to fear to take the first step. However, we cannot continue living a fake life for the rest of our lives. Surely there will be people who love you for who you are. Or at least, that is something we all hope as we take off our own masks.

      I am sure there are people out there who would love you but the question is can anyone love 100% of you? Won’t there be something about you that might push them away?

        Can’t say I’m the best person to comment on the topic of “love”, but I can say for sure that there are people who cherish those that they are comfortable with. For example, as long as the person is someone who is willing to listen to me and be by my side. As long as whoever they “really are” does not hurt me, I’ll be more than willing to accept whoever they are as a person. No matter how messed up they may be on the inside. No matter what secrets they may have…
        Recently, I tested out telling others everything about me. I told them things that I vowed I would take to my grave. In the end, we all just laughed about it and talked about how messed up I am. Joked about how I’m a degenerate and a failure of a human being before proceeding to our usual conversations and interacting as per usual. This is nothing about love but I guess it just kinda proves that, as long as you are a nice person and people feel comfortable around you, they would not feel so repulsed by whatever secrets you may have. They may joke about it or try to help you depending on what it is. If it’s a part of you that you dislike and really want to change, they may try to help you. If it’s just a messed up part of you that you are scared to share, they may just end up joking about it for a while and later just forget about it and treat you as per normal…
        Or perhaps I just have messed up friends. ^^”
        It all depends on the people around you but I can definitely say that there are people who are rather accepting of others no matter how messed up they may be on the inside.
        Sorry if this comment is a little messy or not really relevant due to the fact I’m not exactly talking about love. (more of acceptance I guess, perhaps they may accept some things but not really love them, but the parts of you that they love make them feel that it is worth it to stay by your side)

          What a lovely comment! I really loved reading it.. and I honestly think love and acceptance should go hand in hand, but I guess this is just from my personal experience that makes me wonder if a person can be entirely accepted or loved, for the matter of fact? But honestly come to think of it, in today’s world are people actually accepting someone they love? Or are they just loving the few aspects of that person they seem to accept? It’s something to think about. Perhaps a call for another revelation of unrevealed thoughts? Cheers!

    “…just loving the few aspects of that person they seem to accept”
    I think that is a very plausible considering the world we live in. We cherish the things we love about a person and decide that whatever other traits that they have which you don’t particularly love or accept can be overlooked. Unlike as romanticised in TV series, Anime and books, it’s probably impossible to love someone completely for who he or she is. No matter how much someone says they love or accept you, they all have a pre-defined image of who we are in their minds. It protects themselves from feeling disappointment towards those who they are close to. Even if the person they are close to does something they do not really agree with, they will bend reality by reassuring themselves that the person is only doing whatever it is for so and so reason which they can accept. Us knowing this fact, also try our best to fit into the image others have of us and continue to be “loved” in such a way…
    I guess, in the end, I do agree with you. While people may turn a blind eye to certain aspects of you to accept you as a whole and continue treating you as per normal, that is not really loving a person as a whole, is it? It’s simply accepting of the fact that they are not entirely what we wish they are. Although, even if they don’t accept and love you as a complete whole, despite the fact that they know a part of you they do not really like and still continue to love you overall, isn’t that enough? For me, I feel like I don’t need to be loved, just accepted. Though in your terms that would be the same as being loved isn’t it?

    Either way, both are very difficult things. To be truly loved and accepted… If that is possible I have yet to feel it. Or perhaps I simply fail to notice, I do not know…
    My friends who I talked about in my previous comment, I think they may be getting sick of my nonsense… considering how much crap I talk about when I feel comfortable with people. I talk too much about things they are not particularly interested in or do not know how to respond and things get awkward… Guess I’ll go back to being my introverted self who idles time away reading manga and watching anime despite being surrounded by people. Although now, I can write when I’m bored too haha XD

    In the end, I guess I’m more of a high-maintenance friend than I thought I was. Perhaps that’s why I always like to distance myself from others. When I’m not too close to them, I can get by just having a conversation once every few weeks or months and still feel relatively comfortable with them. When I get close I say too much and try too hard till I become annoying and I just lose it all… or perhaps it’s not that I lose it all. I give it all up because the moment I no longer get the same amount of attention as before I start to worry that others hate me and that I should never have messaged in the first place. Especially in group chats when literally everyone in the chat leaves you on read. Be it because they are in a bad mood, have things to do, don’t know how to respond or cannot be bothered. For one on one conversations online I usually don’t mind waiting and can be understanding to very late replies but in group chats that consideration that everyone else could possibly be busy with life doesn’t even enter my mind. Every moment without a reply kills me and I just feel like I made a mistake sending the message…
    In the end, I’m seriously a troublesome close friend to have lol. Despite me saying all this, I myself do not respond quickly all the time. Sometimes I’m in a bad mood and don’t reply at all. Even though I know what it is like to not feel like replying someone or messaging someone, when I’m on the receiving end, none of that enters my mind…

    Not sure how far I sidetracked or whether my comment is even responding to your comment anymore but I ended up rambling yet again… I’m sorry! >~~<

      Hey first of all, no need to be sorry about being you. You “rambling” on is just lovely to hear you know. Just the fact that you were comfortable enough to share your thoughts here, is more than I could hope for. My blog is, after all, all about revealing unrevealed thoughts. So feel free to “ramble” as much as you want. I more than happy to hear you out. Your opinions and your thoughts matter to me as much as anyone else’s. No, I am not saying this to be polite or something, I genuinely don’t mind people sharing whatever they wish with me. If you’d like, we can even talk privately. Oh and that reminds me…. buddy, I know exactly what you mean by feeling like you are bother or annoying the people you are talking to. But you know I don’t about other people but I have a friend, a really close one that is and he is the person I just tell EVERY SINGLE THING to and vice versa. We do get annoyed by each other at times but you know in the end we know no matter what happens, I will have his back and so will he. It took a lot of patience and acceptance to get to this point and to tolerate each other even we share the most nonsense thing with each other. So what I am trying to say is, that yes, sometimes being too open with your closed ones can push them away, but you just have to find that person who is ready for a beneficial symbiotic relationship. The main thing about friendship is that it has to be mutual. You have to rely on each other. otherwise, one-sided friendship just becomes a burden for the other. When I say you need to find a person like that, I really mean you have to build that kind of relationship. You can’t actually “find” someone like that. You have to show that you are not the only who needs love but that you are ready to love the person as much as they’d like. Mutuality (if that’s a word, not sure) is so so so important in a relationship.. any relationship.

      Oh and btw just a side note. I absolutely love reading your comments. They are so in depth and I can see the flow of your thoughts in your comments. I really look forward to reading your comments. So keep going! πŸ™‚

        Thank you for being so accepting of my “ramblings” πŸ™‚
        When I’m online I’m pretty open about my thoughts so I don’t mind talking to you through the comments of the posts I have thoughts on or can relate to in any way. ^^

        To be honest, I would not mind getting in a fight or argument with others but the thing is, that never happens to me. When I say that I think I’m annoying them, it’s because they go silent. They do not respond. As if they’ve run out of words to say to me because I’m always talking rubbish when I’m with them cause I’m too comfortable. If they just told me off and asked me to shut up, I would. I don’t mind being told to shut up or being told that they don’t give a shit about what I’m talking about. At least then, I would know. In the end, when treated with silence, all I can think about is possibilities of how I may be annoying them. Being left to think alone of such things just makes it more painful to be around them. Should I talk to them? Are they sick of hearing about this? Should I try to talk about something else? Or do they prefer to talk to someone else about something that they are more interested in that I am not so interested in? What should I do around them?

        Left to think about all this, those that I was closest to become distant once again. I simply go back to my phone or laptop. Social media become a place for me to write about everything I ever wanted to say. With such a wide reach, it allowed me to communicate with those that had similar thoughts. I could finally feel at peace. Yet even on the Internet, just like every close friend has other close friends, it is impossible to have anyone to yourself. The kindest people are kind to everyone. In Oregairu, Hikigaya Hachiman was talking about nice girls, but I think it can apply to any nice person. He said, “If you’re nice to me, you’re nice to others. I always end up nearly forgetting that. Reality is cruel, so I’m sure lies are a form of kindness. Thus, I say kindness itself is also a lie. I always ended up with these expectations. And I always ended up with these misunderstandings. And before I knew it, I stopped hoping.” However, it is because of the lack of hope that there is a lack of despair. I don’t mind so much when people stop talking to me anymore, I just look for others to talk to. Perhaps someday there will come a person who betrays my expectations. Someone who I can have a long-lasting friendship with. Not that I expect it to really happen… but it’d be great if it could happen.

        Anyways… it’s really great that you have at least one person who you can share everything with! It’s really amazing because the only time I can share everything about myself is behind a screen to people who I’ve never met lol. Hopefully, you have a long-lasting relationship/friendship! πŸ™‚

        I know that in any relationship, it is important for both sides to care for each other (sorry, being the negative person I am, I don’t exactly believe in love outside fiction yet). Not just care for each other, but stay committed to each other to help each other in their times of need as well as be understanding of each other. However, it’s impossible to understand or help the other person if they never say anything. Likewise, I cannot change myself if they don’t tell me what exactly what I say or do bothers them. I can try to take hints but if they are things I really like to talk about, unless I know for sure that they do not like it, I’ll find it really difficult to just stop based on my own assumptions.

        Anyways, sorry if I didn’t exactly respond to your comment but I did read the whole thing. I just ended up talking more again since you said you don’t really mind ^^”

        Thanks for taking your time to read my comments. πŸ™‚
