Teenage love. Parents always tell us not to focus on relationships because they aren’t important at our age and we should wait until we’re done with school to find someone, right now it’ll only distract you. But by that time comes, we aren’t young anymore. I think the best part about being young and in love is how deeply we feel. When you find someone you really like, you get really excited and jittery just to hear their voice. That moment where your heart stops when you finally have the guts to tell them you like them. You think about their every feature and every moment you spend together and it just makes you feel happy inside. That first kiss is like nothing you could ever explain, it’s too good to be true. But teenage love is like a roller coaster. It’s cliche but so true at the same time. You fight and scream and yell. You’re whole body just feels weak, with your heart hanging heavily. You fall asleep crying, thinking that nothing could be worse, feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom. Like I said before, we feel everything so deeply, even the pain. We let ourselves get hurt because we never knew how hard we would fall. We were so ignorant of the consequences. Yet you should be thankful to have the ability to feel that hurt, that you found someone that could actually make you feel that way. For some people its too late… because in those years that we have, where we laugh and cry, we learn to love and be strong. Some of us built these walls up because they learned too early how to be strong. Don’t take these years for granted because you will never get them back and there’s a possibility you may never feel the same again.
“You fall asleep crying, thinking that nothing could be worse, feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom.” I’m sorry, unless you are homeless, starving, and have cancer, then that is not the worse feeling ever. This post is so dramatic and ignorant.
^ YES. Who says that jittery feeling won’t still be there when you fall in love as an adult? Why rush into a relationship? I would also want my kids to focus in school. Life is all about learning. It’s never too late to experience love, to experience the hurt, to experience whatever. Meh..
