I’ll NEVER & I do mean NEVER understand why things happen in the order they do. Why people are placed in your life, why life takes you certain places or why you have to experience hardships in order to move forward. This time last year I was a completely different person. I was far more naive, had not a worry in the world & lived life for that day instead of the day after. Also, I was deeply in love with what I honestly thought was forever that was until forever came to an end. Going away to college & these last nine months have really changed me. One life lesson after another continued by yet another. But one thing for certain, two things for sure, if I could go back and do it all over again, I would. While some of my actions and encounters may not have been the wisest, each and every one of them has made me, me. I’m growing; seeing things in a different light and people for who they actually are. I had to learn on my own that just because you “love” someone doesn’t mean they love you the same nor does it mean that they have your best interest at heart. Honestly, I can sit back and say I love the person that I’ve become but I’m also looking forward to continuing my transition into the person I aspire to become.
