    A few weeks ago, this person

    who I just met had an impact on me.. We don't talk anymore, but he brought up that I don't know what I want, and it did in fact bring me to the reality I was so desperately trying to detach from. Do I really know what I want? The answer to that, no. I don't. I don't know what I...

    I'm happy, but I'm not sure this is for me. I really don't know where I will be in say, 10 years?? Will I still be in the same situation? Only time will tell I suppose
