growing up

College is indeed a time to learn more about who you are — your likes, dislikes, opinions, hobbies, and beliefs. But that doesn’t mean you have to conclude college with a thorough understanding of yourself or even who you want to be.

You live a sheltered life, a life where everyone only loves you unconditionally. You live a life of pleasure and playtime. I wish I could freeze you in time, so that you could always have a whole heart.

Can you think of one person that you want to be? Someone who is perfect? Perhaps someone you know? Can you think of anyone you know really well who has no issues or annoying quirks or acne? I believed in these “perfect people” when I was little, but I also believed in the Easter Bunny.
