You are never too old to remain young at heart.
Friendships don’t always last forever even if you thought they would.
Thank you for teaching me not to waste the little moments.
It can be hard enough to convince ourselves we’re enough – the last thing we need is to convince our partner we’re enough.
Your understanding of the world was stunted by the atmosphere at home and even the abnormal became normal. You looked for an explanation and wondered if it was all due to you.
I am sorry that your parents, teachers, and elders, who were supposed to guide you, were equally dazed, overwhelmed, and intimidated by the challenges the new era presented, and I am extremely sorry that you had to figure out most of what you know about the world on your own.
You have stopped defending yourself constantly. You have stopped making so many excuses and instead, have learned to fess up and apologize when it’s necessary to do. In your friendships, relationships and in your life in general, you have learned to be more humble and to do the right thing no matter how hard it may be.
I finally feel like I’m in college. I’ve finally found you. My forever friends.
I had a growing sense of the limitations of my worldview as I traveled. Every day since the end of college, I have been faced with the reality that life is so complexly grey.
Settle for the fact that sometimes you’re just going to feel weird around people, even people you really like. Because socializing can be really hard.
