||This is a small artfully made notebook I received as a gift from a very good friend a few years ago. I'm sure it was very expensive and my friend put a lot of effort into picking out this present for me, but I've just never found a fitting use for it, so I decided to make it a Bookmooch journal.
This friend had feelings for me, and I knew about it, but we never really spoke about what was obvious. Back then we were very young and probably just didn't know how to deal with that kind of thing in an appropriate matter (then again – do you ever really?); today I wish we had talked things through. There are so many times in life when we don't share our true thoughts and feelings with someone close to us, out of fear that it might change the relationship. When we think about it later, it often seems a shame that we didn't try to be honest.
I want to hear your "Stories of Untold Love". It doesn't have to be romantic love like in my case – it can be about the way you admired a teacher but never told them, the deep connection you felt with a friend, or the way you truly feel about your siblings even though they always annoy you.
What didn't you tell? How do you think it would have changed things if you had? If you had the option to go back in time, would you behave differently? Tell me your story – in writing or drawing or any other possible way – in as much detail as you chose to reveal.
A few rules for journaling:
1) Use as many pages as you want for your entry, but don't alter anyone else's work.
2) I suggest you relist this journal on your inventory immediately after marking it received (since you'll already be on Bookmooch anyway :)) – this will make the journal available as soon as possible for other moochers, and remind you to make an entry. Don't worry about time pressure – you can always tell a moocher that it will take you a little longer to send out their book.
3) When the book is full, please contact me (Hannah; BMID: hanhel), and I will mooch it back to you. If you are having trouble getting the book back out to someone, feel free to contact me as well, I will try to find a solution.
