NOW PLAYING: BETWEEN TWO LUNGS- FLORENCE + THE MACHINE
I made the mistake of going through really old photographs, and I realised there are too many things from the past that I miss.
I miss my best friend.
I miss having a fringe.
I miss feeling naive.
I miss the times when I was clueless about the art of Hating People Just Because You Can.
I miss being skinny.
I miss doing whatever I want without worrying about being judged.
I miss feeling like I belonged.
I miss the crazy times I spent with my closest friends.
I miss being liked.
I miss the absence of my self-consciousness.
I miss my old friends whom I hardly talk to nowadays.
I miss being a good friend.
I miss being a kid.
I miss the privileges that come with being a kid.
I miss feeling happy all the time.
And now they’re gone, out of my grasp, forever.

Most of the things on that list up there, you can still have/do/acquire/achieve now. Let go of yesterday, and open your eyes to the magic of today. C:
It’s hard. I need to constantly remind myself that “It does not do to dwell on the past and forget to live.” Sigh.
And I miss you .
And I miss you more. I also feel obliged to apologise. I’m sorry. 😦
You miss being self-conscious? I thought you’d rather not fee it?
Still, many things up there, I feel it too…but then life as chaotic as it is currently, it is sort of exciting isn’t it?
I meant the absence of my self-consciousness.
Well, it depends. I admit, this year has been really eye-opening and exhilarating, and I don’t regret anything, but still, I’d want some bits from the past.
Sorry silly me my brain didn’t digest the ‘absence’ part. But mich, you’ve become much more free-spirited. nowadays!
And how can you miss being liked? Everybody already loves you!
