Even though I can't say it.

An Essay By Bridget // 8/11/2014

I have always liked you. You were once the most vibrant of my faraway friends.
But you've dimmed a little. I know that people make mistakes, but I thought you were past making this one. I haven't lost any love for you. But I no longer trust your judgement.
You are sheltered. You are sheltered not because you've had an easy life but because you have the luxury of believing that you are always doing the right thing, and that anyone who criticizes is a "hater", and you know they gonna hate. You are sheltered because the fools that surround you are quick to say "No, you did the right thing, sweetheart. Make yourself happy."
You did the wrong thing. You are not God. Your decisions are not infallibly correct. You messed up. And that's fine. But you can't sail through life thinking that whatever decision you make is automatically the best for everyone.
I just wanted to say that.
