You Shouldn’t Be Overthinking The Love

I’m very sure I’m not the only one who has caught the love bug, at least once. It’s hard catching it when you trying to figure shit out, trying to discover who you are.

Sometimes it can seem limiting, sometimes it can feel like a burden, sometimes it’s too much emotions and sometimes it’s just beautiful, especially when you hear that person’s voice.

One thing that seems to be hindering love at the young adults stage is the thought of the future. Will this person be beneficial to my transition? Would we make it through the transition???………..the questions go on and on.

We are so bothered about the “What-Ifs” that we end up wasting the ‘now’. Even if the days with the one you love are numbered, why don’t you make the most out of that numbered days. You guys might be in different states, different cities, chasing different career lanes, but that shouldn’t deter you from making happy memories.

You might say saying goodbye might hurt, or it doesn’t make sense to continue if y’all are going to finally part, but let me ask you this, doesn’t it still hurt now?

When there is a beginning, there is always an end. What matters is what you do with the in-betweens.
