Prompt – And right then, everything became clear. You finally realized…

For me, there’s nothing scarier than being unsure of the future. I’ve always been someone whose terrified of change. It terrifies me knowing that any day something, or someone, important to me might not be there the next day or even hour.

As I talked about in a previous post recently, change doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It can mean that your life is finally going in the right direction that you need even if you don’t think you want it.

For me, this realization hit when I fell for someone else. After my last heartache, I expected, and had planned, to get through my first semester then hide by myself over break at the house to avoid anymore problems with them. Little did I know the plans the universe had in store instead.

It set me in a situation where I could either choose to run from something new and let my fear take over, or I could take a chance in the dark on someone new and see where it leads. As my recent posts show, I took that chance, and I have no regrets. We’re doing amazing now and I wouldn’t trade this away as I haven’t been this happy in a long time.

  1. What realization hurt the most for you during college, if you went? If you didn’t go to college, did something like this happen for you in high school?
