It’s a weird little cycle. When you are young, you go through life thinking you are the only one feeling that way. That no one could understand your situation, that you can’t live without said boy, or you wish you were older already.
Then you grow up, get past all the hurdles, move on, get married to someone who wasnt said boy and wonder why you worried so much when you were younger.
I have been through it all and I’m happily married now. I’m trying to help my teenage sisters and reassure them that their life isn’t over if they don’t end up being with the person they want to be with. But they just get angry at me and say I don’t understand, im married, I can say that now.
I don’t know how to get through to them. I’m not being mean or trying to burst anyone’s bubbles. I’ve just been through it already, so I know how it feels.
Hindsight is a funny thing.
