Good morning love, sorry if I’m answering late. But, in regards to relationships I would rather be scared that I’d lose someone forever/an extended amount of time. In my opinion, it hurts more to lose someone because they hold that special place in your heart that will never go away. It will always haunt you in a way, if you allow it to. You will always carry them in your heart, and sometimes that can hold you back from living life. You have to be strong enough to know that Love is Love, and whatever bit of it you receive, you’ve got to be grateful for it even if you lose it.
Loving someone shouldn’t scare you at all; it should give you courage. It should make you want to make the best out of your life. So, if you are scared to be unhappy with someone, then you are being a coward because if that person made you happy at all, you wouldn’t be afraid to love them. You’re not scared of being unhappy, you’re scared of being finally being happy and someday losing that happiness. Being focused on being unhappy with someone will only project that onto the relationship and cause the other person to be unhappy. If you were happy with someone, you would know that that person has your best interests at heart and wants nothing more than to love you and be loved in return. The only way you can fall in love is if you have the courage to do so. Sure, you can be scared that certain things may not work out, but if you know about those things already, then you should be working on them instead of being scared. You create love, you don’t just find it.
Hope I’ve answered well! :]
