The Thin & Fading line between 'Right and Wrong'

Most people with any decent sence of judgement can tell the difference between what is 'right' and what is 'wrong'. For instance, giving money to poor people: right! Taking money from poor people: wrong. But; what happens if we do a classic Robin Hood and take from the right to give to the poor? Is this right, or has Robin crossed the line?

Telling the difference between moral and immoral is like telling a fake designer bag: sometimes easy, sometimes hard, but there are always signs. For instance: is it leather? is it in proportion? would you want people to see you with it? If the answer is no, then don't do it. In life, the warning signs include; would it be ok if someone caught me? Could i tell my friends/boyfriend about this? Crossing the line in this case is buying the fake bag whilst knowing perfectly well it's a fake. Or, getting off with a friends 'ex', knowing very well you have no feelings for him, and your friend does. And using the excuse 'I didn't know i was doing anything wrong' isn't acceptable, because, like with the knockoff back, the signs are out there.

Ok, so everyones hopped over this mysterious line in their life, maybe a handful of times. But is loitering around the fast fading line ok? As long as you say sorry? No. This deserves an asbo. This impares judgement of right/wrong, good/bad, fake/genuine. What may seem OK is infact very very very NOT ok. So, we're talking pretty largely here, boyfriend stealing, cheating in school, eating the last muffin, buying the fake bag, but temptation is everywhere. But the thing to remember is, is really worth it? How long will this last? Is it really for the best? What will my friends/family say? And perhaps most importantly... will it go with my shoes?

A New Year, A New You and whole load of New Gossip.

Suddenly, almost as soon as the clock strikes midnight, everything you heard, thought or felt last year becomes... well, very last year. Who care's about the guy you like and the girl next door? That's soooo last year, darling. Why does it matter that your best friend has gained 9 pounds? It's a NEW freaking YEAR! But is it truly that easy to let go, move on, forget, and never look back... without regret? Is that 'fresh start' really so fresh? Or are your new years resolutions as stale as the bread used in those oh-so-kitsh turkey sandwiches?

The countdown is over and people are buzzing with anticipation. Because, the year is young, and the prospects of finally quitting smoking or learning the guitar may excite even the less motivated of humans. I believe, the secret to persuing and succeeding in this promises we make to ourselves, no matter what time of year, is to take one small step at a time. Because when you look back, you'll be a hell of a lot further then when you started! Concentrate on one little target to achieve your dream goal. For instance, my resolution was to be a nicer person in general and my first target was to stop being so DAMN nosey! First, i refrained from commenting on other peoples conversations. Then, I found myself not listening all together. However, this lead to a lack of juicy juicy (harmless) gossip. So I moved on and started giving more hugs. Everyone likes hugs, right? Right!

Now, about the looking back. Picture it. Your high high up on a rickety bridge over a canyon. The voice in your head says 'don't look down, bitch! Don't look down!' So what do you do? Look down, far down to the potential painful death you could experience if you don't keep moving! I see it like this; look back on mistakes helps us learn, move on and keep chugging along until we are far enough way to either not remember or not care. It's as simple as that.

When First Dates turn into Worst Dates...

It's not the guy, I mean he's great. Charming, funny, friendly and kind. It's the time, the place and me. Today I had a bad date. I recently came out of an almost 5 month relationship, and as in Sex and The City, I believe you should allow yourself half the time you dated the person as to get over them. So thearetically, I shouldn't start going on any dates for another 2 and half months. But it was more like two and a half days, literally. And FYI, it's not a good idea. My emotions towards new crush and old boyfriend where confused- the feelings of love I had towards OB where getting lost between the feelings of excitement with NC. And together- love and excitement- create what I'm missing from either relationship; so combined, I'm in a damn good one. But wait- that's two guys, and I cant let myself get confused. It's so hard forcing yourself back to Plan A after so much with an OB, all the shit you got through together, all the fun you had, all the things you learnt, and the friendship. And then moving onto a NC, the prospect of all the above... it's just so hard to get caught in an emotional cross fire.
It started fine, a little awkward, but that's expected. It's just when he started brushing my arm, or touching my knee that my thoughts turned to OB. The date turned stressful and hard to bear, I had to stop looking at NC in the eye, I got nervous and scared. I really like this guy, but it's just way to soon. It's like buying a new dog the day after you're old one dies. What if OB finds out? What if NC finds out? Oh shit, i'm in shit. But when dates turn bad because of relationships turned bad, really, what can you do? It's not fair on the date to say 'hey, listen, not over my EX yet but maybe we could try this again in a few months 'cos I really like ya'll.'... wait, is that not fair? Maybe that would work. Surely he'd understand right? See, here I am, mixed up again.
The thing about this kinda thing is that it's so hard to tell when you're really over that person. I go buy three things: I can tell EX my crushes, I can tell EX what I really think about their EX, and most of all, I can see EX without any makeup on. It's so easy to get caught up between old and new, do you tell EX? Yes. You have too, and this is where I went wrong, I didn't tell him. Maybe if I had said 'I'm going on a date' it would me easy for me. Instead of thinking the whole time 'what would EX say?'. When you come across a situation like this all you can do is be honest. And, I know I'm not perfect, but I do believe honesty is the key to a good relationship, whether it's 'just friends' or growing old together. Don't put yourself out there too soon. Don't be vunerable. Do tell him [NC or OB] how you're feeling. And when all else fails, just take time for taking time.

Love Hurts.

Wikipedia says [and I know not to trust it on everything, but I believe this is true] "Unrequited love is love that is not openly reciprocated, even though reciprocation is usually deeply desired. The beloved may not even be aware of their admirer's deep affections. This can lead to feelings such as depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and rapid mood swings between depression and euphoria. Being such a universal feeling, it has naturally been a frequent subject in popular culture."

Bah, I know what that feels like. What if you are loved, but the one you love is not the one that you love? Truth is, and remember, the truth hurts, love is not always a two player game. It totally sucks. Even if it's not even LURVE! What if, you, like, totally are crushing on that cute guy. It may feel like lub, and I know what that feels like too. You want it so bad, but you can't have it. ARGH. Well; the worst thing you can do is assume. Never assume ANYTHING. Please, remember that, it'll save you so much heartache. Don't trust, don't assume. Guys will say anything you want to hear just because you want to hear it, and that may sound nice but in the long run it's the worst thing that can happen.

Pain. What can you do? Avoid the person? Find someone new in the hope of getting over you're crush/love of your life? And, if they aren't the love of you're life, and you ain't gettingn anywhere with them, try to remember if it was gonna work, you would make it work. If you can't make it work, it never will. BUT BUT BUTT- and a bit J LO BUTT! How can you ever be sure that you don't have a chance? Try it. And, hey, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. You could always make up a rumour about them after. Like, IE, they like wearing womans thongs. Bahaha, that's a funny one to surface.

I realised something about two seconds ago. What if, that thing you've been waiting for isn't really what it seems? IT's all starting to fall in place for me, but what if it's really falling apart? Someone wants me to choose, and I hate choices. Someone wants me to tell the truth, and I hate admitting I'm wrong. Someone wants me to give up all the shit, but I just can't. This life is so hard, but you'll one day find someone that'll make all the shit you've been through worth it.
