There’s this girl, we’ll call her B. My parents had to go out to go Christmas shopping and I had to watch the baby, I asked B to lend a hand sense she lived down the road and was a friend of mine. B is older than I am and so I was very nervous, when she arrived everything was okay, everything seemed fine but after a while I started feeling really down. After we fed the baby we went upstairs, gave her a bath, and went to put her to bed around 7:30pm. We sat it the dark room for a while, Me on the bed laying with the baby, her on a mattress on the floor. After the baby feel asleep I went over to her an asked if she wanted to go get some food downstairs, She silently got up and simply hugged me from behind. At this point I was stunned and nervously hugged back unsure of what was going on. We went down stairs and ate some cereal and talked for a bit, eventually the conversation went from school, to relationships; I asked if she was single and she said that she was, and I was surprised because she’s really rather attractive and cute, Not thinking I blurted out, “But that’s crazy! Your so beautiful…” she said I was sweet but she disagreed, I simply replied, “Please, No one like you could ever like someone like me.” she then turned her phone around revealing a series of texts from her to a friend, she had spammed her friend with texts about how she might like me. We talked a little after I freaked the fuck out, and cried for a while. We went to watch TV, we snuggled a bit and then she was teasing me so I tackled her down tickling her… We looked at each other and.. we kissed. We’ve barely talked sense and she won’t even look at me. – E
"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.
