Bootless- of no advantage; useless; futile
— ― Confucius (via psych-quotes)
It is easy to look back in hindsight and tell yourself that you should have seen the signs that something was wrong or that someone was deceiving you. It is easy to feel naive that you thought someone was one person and they turned out to be someone completely different. But you cannot live your life in hindsight— you need to realize that you are beautiful for wanting to see the best in people. You also need to learn from the experience so that you can be a little more careful in who you decide to spend your time with.
Boor- one who is rude, unmannerly, or clownish
Boon- a benefit enjoyed; something to be thankful for; a favor asked
Hold on to people you knew when you were younger. Not all of them are worth holding on to; as you change so do the people around you and your paths won’t always continue to intersect. However, there are some precious ones out there are worth staying in contact with throughout your life, even if you don’t see each other as often. I had a conversation with my friend last night who has been one of my best friends for 9 years (since we were in 7th grade) and even though he is in the Marines and I barely get to see him, everything felt the same when we were talking. It is the little things like that that will help you get through the tough times in your life when you least expect it. You would be surprised at the people who can help you more than you would expect so don’t write people off as quickly as you may be inclined to.
