I’ve had a lot of thoughts running through my head the last few days, but I still don’t have much to say.
I just have this, which is perfect, and somehow manages to say everything that is in my head right now.
Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what’s to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we didn’t have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves… for growing up.
–The Wonder Years
I think forgiving ourselves and those around for growing up is one of the hardest things. It might be impossible, but I’m going to try.
