Locked in a Haze

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”
― John Lennon

Connection. It is absolutely one of the most important things in life, without it there can nothing. If we don’t connect and communicate there would be complete chaos in this world. We connect every single day, but we don’t even realize it. We don’t realize how important it is. Relationships, whether a friendship, teammates, or partners, connection is vital. Without connection relationships would always fail. So many times we simply want to control our relationships and our lives, but we forget that connection is absolute key.

So to all of you out there having trouble in your relationships ; connect a little more lovelies. You have nothing left to lose if you give it up. We constantly fool ourselves, lying until we’ve convinced ourselves that all of this crazy chaos is alright. It’s not. I live so far from the one person I would give anything to be near. So I do my best to connect, even with the distance, it’s hard, and sometimes it’s heartbreaking, but it will be worth it, I have to stay strong in believing that. For the longest time I tried to shut it off, my feelings that is, thinking as long as everyone else was happy it would be ok, that I could be happy if they were.

Bullshit.

It doesn’t work like that, if you don’t talk about what’s going on, if you don’t connect, it doesn’t work, ever. That’s how life is, you have to connect or you’ll never ever be happy. I’m not saying you have to go out and share every little thought with everyone because that probably wouldn’t go over well either, but you need to be honest. Don’t be that coke bottle, just shaking it until you absolutely just cannot take it anymore and the cap just blows off and you explode. It’s heart wrenching to hold it all back, and I know that because I’ve done it for so long, and I still do. I smile when I’m not happy, laugh when I’m sad, and brush it all off when all I want to do is cry.

Don’t do that to yourself, please. Connect with someone, even if it’s just one person, connect. It’s so incredibly important, and I promise you will feel better. Trust is something that feels so good. Love though, that’s one of the best and worst feelings in the world, all at the same time. You’re going to fall in love many times (or at least the majority of you will), your trust will be broken, people will lie to you, and you’ll feel broken. Let me give you this though ; nobody is perfect, everyone is a little broken. Don’t give up. You can do it if you’re willing to simply connect.
