Catch Me Elsewhere
We all remember our first love. The butterflies in our stomach, nervousness, the fear of actually talking to them face to face, the fear of rejection? We’ve all had these experiences. As for me, I was a little late in the game as I did not have my first until I was 13. The moment I met him, all sorts of emotions and feelings I never had before all came out. My cousin was the first person I told in confidence about him, although it was a successful failure trying to hide what I was feeling. To this day, we are still social to each other. But like every first love, there are let downs and disappointments. Once I was comfortable enough to start speaking with him, we eventually became friends. Fast forwarding a few years later, me and him got into a huge argument over something stupid (and to this day I can’t remember what the extent of the argument was about). But I do remember how bad the argument had intensified between us. For a while we did not speak to each other. But because I was friends with him, I did not want to flush a friendship down the drain. Me being the bigger person, I apologized for my part. Even though we don’t carry the same relationship (or friendship, if you will) like we did before, my first love did teach me a lot about myself and the relationships that would follow in my life.
I have carried all of these key points with every relationship (this includes friendships) I have had. So this is more of a thank you to him and something I will continue to carry with me.
