working to help myself by helping others and untangle the past. living the dream... if twenty-somethings are allowed to dream anymore... 23/f/MA.

To be honest, I’ve never thought about my life through the point I’m at or beyond. I’ve never really thought about having a family. I’ve never really thought about having a job, or a career, or a home - even where that might be. Upon reflection, I’ve compartmentalized sections of my life to specific geographic areas. As I was walking back home yesterday, it dawned on me that in four years, I could be walking down the same street, in the same or similar clothes, having had the same or a very similar day with my hair longer, or braided, or having made more progress, or knowing more, or being a similar but different person… It never occurred to me that I could be a different person in the same place, or exist in this same place, doing these same things, without a time limit. I don’t know if that’s strange or not, but it was an incredibly empowering feeling - that plenty will change within me without needing to change the outside environment.
My current challenge is accepting the ones I love as they are, and not trying to force change upon them, which is especially hard with all the change going on around and within me.@1 week ago with 1 note
