I don’t think feelings change, not people. I think situations change. I know that it’s possible to dislike someone after loving them so much or to love someone after feeling so much hate towards them but, it’s not because people change, it’s because it’s not the same anymore. It’s because something made you think differently, something opened your eyes, something caused you to see everyday the way it is at last. It’s like days. Days can be cloudy, or days can be sunny but days don’t change, the weather does. And nothing can play a part in that or fix that, they can just let it be.

I still check on you.

No matter what happened between us, or how long its been since we last talked, I still care, I wanna know you’re doing and feeling. I don’t stalk you but just enough to know you’re okay because you’re still that person I miss and the person who will always be in my heart.

lovesick crackhead.

how many times must we go through so much until we learn to stop. As a chemistry-major, I now have somewhat understood how the hormones and chemicals in our body process when infatuated or assaulted by such strong feelings towards someone or “love” to be exact.

When you think you’ve gotten over the shit feelings towards someone then you see the guy or girl suddenly everything goes back to the times you were with them, whether it was the good or ugly, your inside turns into a cauldron bubbling with emotions you need to control and suppress. Not only that, but you wonder how are they. We all know what we really mean with “how are they”. You’ll start to wonder who they’ve been flirting with or if they have a new relationship with someone already but they’re just hiding it from everyone else. 

but maybe you’ll also want to ask them how’s their dog, or what his brothers are doing, or what page is he on the book he borrowed from you years ago. Just maybe.

Is it natural for a person to feel this way after missing someone and at the same time resenting or feeling bitter?

As a veterinarian who specializes in behavioral medicine, Dr. Vint Virga has treated many household pets in his clinic. But for the past five years he has been working mostly with leopards, wolves, bears, zebras and other animals living in zoos and wildlife parks. He deals with such issues as appetites, anxiety and obsessive behavior.

In the interview he discusses how zoos have changed to improve the animals’ well being:

"I think the most important things that zoos have done in the past 10, 20 years, is that they [have] focused primarily on the animal’s well-being. And, depending on their feedback and responses, looked at their behavior, looked at their overall happiness and contentment and used that as the gauge for what to do for the animal.

They’ve also applied as much [as] science knows about the animals in nature. What that looks like is providing them with a space that’s a lot more rich and full than just a place that is an exhibit. So it’s really shifting from not a cage, because most zoos don’t even have those anymore, but from an exhibit to a habitat. The environment is much richer and more complex rather than flat and uniform, so that we can see them.

[Zoos are] providing [animals with] opportunities to escape from view of the public — and that can be difficult for a zoo. … Visitors complain to the zoo if they can’t see the leopard, the bear or the lion. But on the other hand, if the lion doesn’t have any choice of getting away from the public at times, particularly if there [are] crowds or noisy visitors, then we’re taking away their sense of control over their environment.”
