Just Knowing is Enough (trying to hope for hope) 

The cliche and over-asked question: if there was information, good or bad, that you couldn’t do anything about, would you want to know?

You may not be able to act upon an attraction. Would you still want to know about it?

I think just knowing is enough. 

Maybe knowing is all you needed in that moment. Just knowing that someone finds you attractive and interesting, even if you can’t or choose not to progress into a relationship – for whatever reason, can restore your hope in the possibility of finding something beautiful. A hope that you may not be allowing yourself to have. 

I often avoid reality because the pain and injustice it has harbored in the past was more than I could bear. But I think I am becoming someone who wants to know.
