Anonymous: I'm drowning in my thoughts about my life, and how it doesn't measure up to my perfect idea of what my life should be, as I move into my twenties and wait for the light to wash over me and make happiness. All I'm left with now is light-washed pictures of my parents in pure bliss as they moved about their lives as young people, drinking tea in cities and biking to California, and I'm nostalgic for it. I'm drowning in it. Pure misery. For no reason I just thought you might understand. Love Natalie
so much more than you’d imagine hahaha.
Hi Natalie. :) I love getting things like this that are so personal and so real and so, idk full of emotion. I get it, it’s like you’re missing something that was never yours and you ache from longing to be a part of that moment. And you realize you’ll never get to, and you feel a sense of loss for something you never had. Well, here’s a virtual hug, you seem like you need one.
I get sad sometimes because I’m missing out on so much, things that I will never do, places I’ll never see, time’s I will never experience. But I guess that’s life. You can be nostalgic, but don’t get caught up living vicariously through everyone else and wishing you could be a part of it so much that you forget to live your own life and make your own moments.
I guess all of us are just waiting for life to begin, and our expectations are so high sometimes we disappoint ourselves. It’s okay though, stop waiting to be happy, if we wait for things to happen we’ll spend our entire lives feeling empty and unfulfilled. You’re twenty! You’re at the pinnacle of this huge adventure of life, enjoy it, sieze it. Go out and do stupid things, things you’d normally never dare to do. Talk to people, explore, create, make your own happiness.
I think we could be great friends Natalie,
reply me please? (sorry I took so long I haven’t been on in a while)
thank you for sharing your life with me
