beyondcloudnine: I know I can never work as hard as my parents have when they first came to this country. The amount of work they have done is beyond me; just so their kids can have a better future. They gave up all their desires and dreams and for a moment stopped thinking about themselves but for their children and their futures.
I think I’m mainly afraid of 2 things in terms of my current life changes and my relationship: 1) I will have a hard time adjusting to the changes and will depend entirely on my bf for stability since that’s almost the only thing that will stay the same in my life.

Seeing how I am moving from one point of my life to another… But some parts of me...

writingsforwinter: You know, I don’t think you ever really forget your first love. They’re the one that made your second love possible. Sometimes you want to throw your hands up in the air and say Fuck it to them, but they paved the way for all the other bodies after them.
