Quick Thought: I Wish My Mom Had Told Me...

1:54 AM

I always jokingly say that my mama didn't say there'd be days like this. But in the back of my mind, I mean it. My mom didn't prepare me for life's journey of love, or independence, life's pain, and confusion. Smile, unexpected, tears burning like salt in a fresh wound, ups that take me so high that I fear the possible fall will break me, and lows that are so low, I'm not sure I'll be able to get back up. I know my mom tried, but as the days go by and life keeps happening, I can't help but want to scream, I'M NOT READY FOR THIS! WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME?! Maybe it's because she's never gone through what I've gone through or what I'm going through.

You can't teach what you don't know

My life hasn't been hard. I've dealt with issues just like everybody else. My story is no more special than the next person's, it just has my name attached to it. But it is this big ass puzzle, and I feel like I am in constant search of important pieces to complete it.
