I FORGOT…
 
I forgot what life is all about …

 
I forgot what it meant to cry .


I forgot that pretending to be happy

doesn't make you happy …


And that pretending to be smart
doesn't make you smart .


I forgot that you can't just forget the past
in fear of the future .
 
 
I forgot that you can't control

falling in love ..

 

And that you can't make yourself
fall in love .


and if you really do fall in love,
then you can't make yourself fall

OUT of love ..

 
I learned that I can love .
 
 
I learned that it's okay to mess up .


And it's okay to ask for help .


And it's okay to feel like hell .


I learned it's okay to complain and whine
to all your friends for a whole day ..
 
 
I've learnt that sometimes the things

you want most,

you just can't have.

 
I've learnt that the greatest thing

about life isn't the parties or the hook-ups .


It's the friendships,

which means taking chances
.
I've learnt that sometimes,

the things we want to forget,

are the things that

we most need to talk about .


I've learnt that letters from friends

are the most important things

and

that sending cards to friends
makes you feel better.
   
But basically,

 
I've just learnt that my friends,

both old and new,

are the most important people to me

in the entire world .


AND .

 
without them,

I wouldn't be who I am today ..
So,
this is a

thank you

to all of my friends ..
for always being there.

    -That was great! You should submit that to the OCD book project…it's really good. You can find that on groups. Hope you are well.
