A year ago I had little hope. I felt like my life amounted to uselessness. No job and a useless degree. I felt like all of the dreams I have waited for and wanted would never come to fruition.
I placed so much hope on finding a boyfriend and marrying him. I thought by doing that I would attain success and be fulfilled.
But that was totally naive of me to think.
Why find love in another person? Can I even function without loving someone that way?
Now, a year later, some hope has returned. I do not expect as much as I dreamed before. I lowered my standards, but I think I do deserve to hope again and to dream again.
Here’s to another night of dreaming, followed by another day to make it come true.
