I want to say something to all the kids that read my blog.
This photo was taken in November of 2006. I was seventeen years old and lived with my dad at a house he no longer owns.
It is 2011 and there isn’t a single shred of life from 2006 that still exists. I don’t live in the same house. I don’t drive the same car. I don’t date the same girl. I don’t live in the same town. I don’t worry about the same things.
Everything you’re worrying about right now will be made irrelevant with time. Hang in there. Don’t give up. Learn to love yourself and don’t put your happiness into another human being. Ever. If somebody could have helped me realize this, I could have spent my time more productively. Do what makes you happy and you’ll find something worth the while.
Seriously, trust me on this one. Just let it all go. Right here. Right now. That’s all you can do. It’s all you’ll ever be able to do.
This photo is a nice memory. That’s all it is. Once you realize that you aren’t part of a storyline, you are boundless.
