Dear Me at 17,
Yeah, I know… but it will get better. You will meet that girl you always fantasized about. She’ll be exactly like you dreamed. She’ll be funny, smart, sexy and she will love you more than anybody ever did. She will be everything you ever wanted and more. In just a couple of years, your soul will be complete. Your gray world will have color and you will know the meaning of unconditional love.
Oh sure…. There will be ups and downs. Even then, the downs will be better than anything you can imagine. Once you meet her, even when your heart is breaking, at least you will have learned that you have a heart and that you CAN love.
Enjoy the colors while they last, kid. In a snap of a finger, she’ll be gone and you’ll be alone again with just the gray.
