For those who have had drastic changes going on, I’ll share one of my stories and hope you can relate.
Back in October, there was an app that I was using. Maybe you’ve heard about it, Whisper. You share your thoughts anonymously and people can send you their thoughts in response. Now, I’ll share more stories about this app later on but for now I’m going to stick with the only good thing that came out of going on Whisper one October night.
I was in college. Living with family. Not my parents by the way since the lived in another state, and had both kicked me out of their house.
Anyways, I went on this app, and ended up speaking with a guy, he had a funny username. He had a funny sense of humor. And for some reason, I just couldn’t stop talking to him. He knew how to keep a conversation going and was humorous.
I never thought that just a couple weeks later we would end up meeting each other. I remember that night like it was yesterday. It was at a Walgreen’s parking lot in the small town that we still live in now. It was about seven o’clock at night and I didn’t want to go home. I was upset with my family at the time.
We met, and we talked for hours. There was an instant connection. And in that moment I knew that he was going to be a huge part of my life.
I’m not go too much into detail because there were a lot of personal things that we did that night, and continued to do for the next month.
For that next month, we spent time with each other almost every single day. I could not get away from him. And within that month, we made a decision. We decided that we wanted to be with each other for the rest of our lives.
We were both very young, well we still are. Him just turning twenty-one, and I still being nineteen. We decided to move in together, not telling anyone in our family, just a couple of close friends.
We got a small apartment, bought some furniture, and moved in.
I had never had a serious boyfriend, I had never been in love. I had always said to myself that I wasn’t going to get married till I was thirty. But then I met him. And it all changed.
Out of all the people we had met in our life, it took us both one month of knowing each other that we wanted to be together for the rest of our lives. I didn’t think that was possible.
I got married at nineteen, and I have never been happier. As I go along in my blog, I will be sharing many personal stories about what made me so miserable before meeting my husband. I didn’t realize how miserable I actually was till I realized how happy I was with my husband.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that the saying “anything is possible” , in some cases, is true. Life has its ways of turning things around.
