There are events in a person’s life that result in a turning point of sorts, that changes the path that their life may have taken if certain events hadn’t happened. For some, it’s hard to pinpoint when these events happened. For others, they become nightmares hard to outrun.
The events in my past that haunt me changed the way that I receive and give love, and drastically changed who I could have been. I often ponder the person I could have been, and also I grief for the loss of this girl I could have been. How this girl could have received love that is different than how I receive it, though I’m not sure I can love any differently.
