Afterwards, copy and paste this into your own journal.
Have you ever just wondered why life is the way it is? Searched for the reasoning behind your feelings? Wrote endlessly trying to figure out what exactly it was that you were thinking? Pretended everything was fine, even if it wasn't? Wanted to go back to the days when you could crawl into mommy or daddy's lap and they made the world right again? Wished lollipops and gummy bears made things okay, like they used to? Colored out of the lines just because you got tired of hearing "Stay inside the lines"? Told someone they had a booger in their nose? Just went back to being a kid, the kid you always wished you could have been, but didn't get the chance because life happened so fast... and your years added up, quicker than you could say "WHOA!"? I think we all do at some point, wish for the past because the present is so unbearable and the future doesn't look that promising either. We didn't vie for control as we do now, huddle into a corner as soon as it seems someone stronger came along, made you feel as though you just weren't good enough. Life isn't simple, anyone who ever said it is, would be labeled a hypocrite, life has its struggles and of course you go through your battles, and you win some, you lose some, but it doesn't mean to roll over and surrender, make life completely worth it. Don't waste time on things that won't mean anything in the future. Let go of the past, and welcome the future, all that is in store is excitement.
