Love. A verb. 4 letters. So powerful. As a student at MC and as I’m finishing up my senior year, I realize that I am 21 and I am not engaged, not dating, and therefore I will die alone.
In a small community such as MC there is pressure to get married young, start a family, and live happily ever after.
In my world.. That just seems so unrealistic. So many make the mistake of jumping the gun all too soon. There is a whole world out there and we are so young.
I feel the pressure, yes… But I am not letting it get to me. I have so much I want to do and so much I want to see. It is important for me to get out of such a comfortable box that I have created for myself… And I don’t really consider it all that comfortable.
I am so happy for those who are happy… I pray they have that fairy tale life.
My fairy tale life is to find who I am. Establish who I am. Then find the one that will compliment me. I am not the easiest and I am for sure not settling.
