If you’re like most people, then you probably know what it’s like to have a crush. From the initial uncertainty of wondering if they like you back, to the excitement of feeling those first butterflies in your stomach, to getting flustered and coming up with any and every excuse to not take things to the next level.
Amelie Jat’s single, Faking Parties, captures the full scope of emotions inherent to having a new crush. She also explores the reasons why we sometimes sabotage our own happiness when we’re in love. What is it that makes us hesitant to let ourselves feel good?
For Amelie, it’s the fear of the unknown. She’s worried that if she takes things to the next level with her crush, things might not work out and she’ll be left feeling disappointed and hurt.
It’s a common fear, but it doesn’t have to hold us back. We can choose to override our fears and go for what we want anyway. The key is to be honest with ourselves, and to accept that we might not always have control over the outcome but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try.
