I am praying that I haven’t completely lost my pride or my rules. I remember *Gigi. I am not sure if I want to be like her. I’m not sure if I’m willing to risk my pride just to find my exception to the rules.

I like my rules. No texting him first, no calling him first, no smiling too much, no glittering eyes, no giving too much information, no over sharing of dreams and aspirations, no telling a person you like him before he even says he likes you, I could go on and on. I have hundreds of rules inside my head.

I don’t like breaking my rules. So if I ever do. You must be someone worth giving them up for.
