The prompt today was: “Everything’s against me” and it did make me stop and think. Back to a time when I truly felt that everything and everyone was trying to make life unbearable. ^_^
Oh, to be 16 again (and know what I know now). I know now that every little pimple broken nail disarrayed hair missed phone call isn’t the tragedy I thought it was then. I know now that I don’t have to be tan to be cute. I know now that no matter how I loved that boy there really are other fish in the sea. I know now that being young healthy happy are such miracles and should be appreciated. But appreciation is for the wiser (older) soul. As a teen everything (everyone) exists to annoy torment pressure plague bother demand. Only in retrospect was that life and time beautiful.
