|Prompt: What have you learned in your teens?
It was easier having your parents support you and take care of you. You had no bills. Just go to school, learn your classes, pass them and love the activities you were in. Your parents were right and smart. Smoking, drinking wasn't cool. It was unnecessary. School wasn't so bad except sitting in classes. I had 6 more credits then I needed when I graduated.
Love isn't a fairy tale. My good friend made a play for the boyfriends I had and wanted. She loved telling me some guy didn't like me. She loved telling me my boyfriend tore up my note when his sister found it. He kept my picture and he carried it for years. We are still friends and he was sorry for what he did. I forgave my friend. She apologized 3 years ago. I hugged her and said it is okay. I forgive her. I had to learn about boys. They didn't play fair. I thought I would find Prince Charming. After a lot of boyfriends over the years, I finally did.
I thought my grandparents would live forever. I was wrong. I wish I was in high school and would have followed Grandma's advice. We can't go back. We go forward.
