why does life still feel like high school?

i don’t know how to negotiate drama in friendship. this weekend i learned that i have let people down, said too much, or said not enough.

it makes me want to run away. or just hide my head in the sand.

i’ve tried more apologies. but end up just shaking my head at texts that read like notes passed in english class.

why does life still feel like high school?

and then i went out with two of my favourite people. not hours before we were discussing the issues of a very complex relationship. but as the night grew longer i watched as they put it all aside, and began to dance together, all because of love.

and i figured, as i sat there sipping my vodka and cranberry, if they can get through this, then i have nothing to worry about.

    That’s because life is like high school, just writ larger. The people we practise at being in that time are the people we have learned to become. And unlearning those ways of thinking takes a lot longer after school is done than when we are in it.

      absolutely – I am learning that lesson for myself now – “The people we practise at being in that time are the people we have learned to become.” so true.

        That was the whole reason Jesus spent so much time teaching us how to live, because we are not only training ourselves for now, but for the who we will be eternally. And he wants us to be happy, not squalid or miserable.
