Ever feel this way? Yeah, me too. It seems to be something that I feel quite often. Maybe it's because I form attachments to people to easily, or maybe it's just that I'm not like all of them. Either way, it hurts. It hurts when I see someone I "used to know." It hurts when the someone I "used to know" acts like the same old friend. This happens often. Enjoy it, but do not trust this person again at the first sign of friendship. I know this from experience. Take this lesson from someone who has been there.
Life Lesson #13 Don't trust someone just because he or she used to be a friend. This person stopped being your friend for a reason. You can't give in at the first sign of friendship, as this may be a false alarm. Take time to let this old friend regain trust. Enjoy this individual's presence, but do not live for this person. You know who I'm talking about.
Something I wrote June 16, 2009. I was 16 years old at the time:
I am definitely not a genius. I don't even know that you would call me particularly smart. However, I do know some things.
I have what I like to call an "old soul." I may not be the most book smart person in the world, but I have some personal wisdom that many others my age do not have.
I haven't been through as much as some, but I have been through more than others. I value the experiences I have had greatly, and the wisdom that I have acquired from them.
Sometimes I act like the most immature person in the world, but other times I have the maturity of a grandmother. That is one of the complex attributes that makes me who I am.
I blossom when I get the chance to be creative. I strive to be original, like an artist in the midst of a million brain surgeons. We all have our place in the world, but I know one of my purposes is to be a creator.
I am confident and outgoing, or shy and insecure. Some days I am not quite sure who I am. But no matter what day of the week it is, or how I am feeling, or what I am wearing, I always know one thing. I am always me, myself, and I. I cannot change that no matter how hard I try, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I made a promise to myself last night. I promised myself that I would start blogging again. It is something I feel that I need to do - for you and me both. I want to thank my followers who have stayed with me during this...blogcation? Whatever you want to call it, I took a break, but I am back and raring to go! Please followers, help keep me on track, and keep me writing. It's something my soul NEEDS to do! :) Even if I just post a picture sometimes, I feel that I MUST post SOMETHING.
Well, I think I'm already making a pretty good start. ;)
