If you want to text first, do it. Want to double text? Go for it. If you like someone, tell them. If someone makes you happy, say it. If someone made you upset, talk to them and tell them why.
We spend so much of our lives playing games and trying to figure out our next
move. We are afraid of being vulnerable, afraid of looking weak. Screw that. Do what you want to do and the right ones with move along with you. Life is too short to play by some made up rules.
Become friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.
Something happened this morning that made me realize a few things:
Wake up. If someone doesn’t feel the same way about you, it sucks, but move on. Find someone that does and don’t waste your time over someone that can’t see your worth. If your friends aren’t there for you, distance yourself and find better. If you are miserable, change something. If you are playing games and thinking that you have all the time in the world, stop. If you care about someone, tell them. If you want to speak your mind, do it. If you miss someone, tell them. Stop thinking you have all the time in the world. Stop thinking that being young is an excuse to do or not do certain things. Life is far too short, too unpredictable. People pass away, people change. To waste it being unhappy, to keep everything inside, convincing someone to care about you, or playing games - isn’t okay. You won’t be here forever. Do it right.
