It's a terribly horrifying thing. Whether you're in it, around it, or even thinking about it.
Love can make you crazy, it can make you stupid, jealous, insecure. Love can make you or break you. It can damn near ruin your life if you let it. For something to have that much power, of course it's going to be scary. How can anyone blame you for wanting to go running and screaming in the opposite direction?
What if the person you love doesn't love you back? Or doesn't know you even exist? Or worse, what if they love someone else? Oh, the number of things that could go wrong are countless. It could be a total catastrophe. Complete and utter humiliation may ensue. The world could quite possibly end, or so it may seem at times.
And just finding someone to love is enough trouble in itself. People are crazy, selfish, inconsiderate, foolish... I mean really, at this point is it even worth it anymore? Is putting yourself on the line for a mere possibility worth the risk?
Of course it is. When you do find someone who is worth all of the trouble, all of the things that could go wrong, the embarrassment, the humiliation... hearing them say 'I love you' is invaluable.
So if you love someone, take the risk.
After all, taking a risk is better than having a regret.
