My dear Southernbabe..at 18 ..Spring is a season for young love...go out there..hang out at all the young swinging places..colleges..join all sorts of activity clubs..
just make friends..and love will follow after..oh..to be young and innocent..it will happen..just enjoy being a girl and being footloose and fancy free..love can't be rushed..
How very true and profound..as Shakespeare's famous quote:
'To have loved and lost is better than never knowing love at all'.
and I would add that one has not lived life fully if one has not loved...
don't know if one could ever understand love but we could sure learn a lot from loving and being loved..
Words of wisdom from someone so young. But I think you have to have known love to find it so difficult for forget. And if it's difficult to forget, then you know the hurt that goes with losing it. But with that loss, and the feelings you go through should increase one's compassion and understanding for others who one may come across that may be having a similar heart breaking experience.
