Things change every single day. Some changes come in time and are gradual…others come out of no where or we try to avoid them so we get a smack of reality. Being as young as i am, i shy away from big changes. I know a lot of other people my age do to. It’s scary knowing the responsibilities that are keep putting on us, like a job, a license, and college. Its a lot at once and a lot of change. Change of where we are going to live and who we keep in touch with or who we distance from. Its a very scary thought. Our time to just be who we want to be and do what we want to do gets cut significantly. Getting a job, and jeeze if you play a travel sport…Trying to balance things dont usually go to well. Stress levels rise and everything just seems to go into a whirlwind that overwhelms you as a person. I start to lose myself, and start not even recognizing my actions and how i treat others. I become irritable from trying to just avoid the changes and the choices that come with it. Choices now that i am on my own with making. Not being able to have any trust in the only people I feel that would understand…It’s very difficult. Guess its all part of growing up, but did it really have to happen so fast? Everything pushed on me at once? Or was i just avoiding the fact things were changing and i just got a smack in the face with reality? All i know is that it is time to step up, face fear in the face, and embrace what i have but more importantly who i have in my life. The choices i make now are life changing and only i can make them, with no advice from others…but i know I have people that will stand behind me with whatever decision i choose…The others that dont…well i guess its best knowing who they really are now rather than later. Even when i get older i know things will change, its time to get used to it and embrace things for what they are and make the best of everything. All i know is, no matter what, it could be worse and in time…it will be alright.
