we don’t want to know all the answers.

things you need in order to stay happy//thought catalog.

You need someone in your life who excites you, makes you nervous, and forces you to question what you think you already know. These usually come in the form of a crush or a relationship. A relationship is obviously ideal but a crush can tide you over like a nice appetizer. We spend so much of our time feeling jaded and set in our ideas, and that’s clearly not a fun way to exist. We pretend it is but deep down it feels a little miserable because we don’t want to know all the answers. We want someone who’s challenging, who we can’t figure out, and can tell us that we’re full of crap. We need someone to get us off the internet and remind us that real life is much more fun. And it’s okay to be unsure and nervous because that just means we’re alive again.

  1. This is so pretty. I'm currently in a long term relationship, but I can't deny the fact that I kinda miss having a crush on someone. The anxiety and nervousness, the 'does-he-like-me-too' curiousity… 🙂
