I know how lonely you get at times and how it feels like your ribcage is caving in. It’s tough, walking down the street and you see the lovers with their blushing cheeks trying to sneak a kiss.
It’s even worse at night when your thoughts have time to broadcast all of your insecurities.
But boyfriends and girlfriends and falling in love is not the end-all, be-all. I promise. You’re only nineteen and you’ve only just begun to witness all that life has to offer.You are still a child of the earth.
You’re going to graduate college, you’re going to live out on your own, you’re going to get a job you hate and you will get a job you love. You’re going to travel and meet people. You’re going to look into the mirror and see yourself the way you’ve always wanted people to see you. You’re going to see sunsets and sunrises. You’re going to celebrate birthdays and Christmases and Fourth of Julys. Having a boyfriend or a girlfriend is wonderful but it’s just one experience out of the many you will have.
Just wait, you will find someone one day with whom you can share all of these wonderful experiences that you’ve had and they’re going to love you even more for it. Because your life does not begin and end with them.
