An Open Letter to 2010/2011
Dear 2010, soon to be 2011;
Fuck! Where did the time go. One year more, or as my mom would say, "one year less." As we close 2010, we look back at everything that happened, release the negativity/bad/ex's/one-night stands, and look forward to another year. Hopefully this time we learned from the mistakes we made in 2010! It's a new year, another round to make new mistakes, to find new crushes/loves, to learn more and more about dating.
I know what you are asking, "HEY boymeetsboyblog.com! What are your New Year Resolutions?" Let us explore the possibilities. My friend told me don't make fantastical promises/goals or easy ones that you set yourself up for accomplishing in less than a day. I suggested we all make wish boards. That idea was instantly turned down.
So here goes...I am looking forward to just relaxing and exploring who I am as an individual. I had spent 9 years of my life with one person. Most people would say, wtf happened!?! You were in love, you had it all, he loves you, the perfect couple. You are right, we probably were. As you see I said, probably. I think one of us was more in love with the other, and the other was in love with the idea of being comfortable and in a relationship. It wasn't 100% a couple, and for that I chose what I chose. The relationship helped me grow into the man I am now...but at the same time it left me naive to dating and meeting people.
Shortly after, I had a brief new relationship/boyfriend. It was perfect (in my mind). He swooned me. I loved him. I gave myself more than I ever had in my not-so-past relationship. Then as quickly as it happened it was gone.
As you can see 2010, you left me broken, but I have slowly picked up the pieces. I am learning the rules to dating. I have learned to protect my heart to guys who play guitars, sing, and have cute scruffy faces. I have learned that one should never date as a boyfriend right off the bat. Don't be so much of a relationship monster/monger.
This new year I plan on focusing on me and those close to me. Taking everything one day at a time. Enjoying the people around me every day that I can. Stop being so scared to take that risk and go for it! Whatever it may be. Be BOLD, be PASSIONATE, let yourself be LOVED and LOVE in return. Just do it all with love and from the heart. Be sincere. Be honest. BE YOU!...hopefully the other person will be too.
I want to write a short song. Do it! I want to shoot a short video! Get to it! I am going to STOP letting my insecurities get the best of me. I am going balls out BABY!
So 2010 I bid thee farewell, and say hello to your friend 2011. Btw 2010, please tell your friend 2011 to be kind to me.
