Someday you'll need to stand tall again

  • Mood:


So one of my roommates is leaving school. She was having issues, and I knew that she was headed that way, and I basically told her my story and it's basically her story.

It's a long drawn out thing which amounts to the fact that she feels lonely and doesn't like it here, except for us, so she wants to go home. Well she'd been debating about going home and she was waffling on the decision and I knew what she was going to end up doing, and I basically told her about me in high school and in the past and basically gave her all my wisdom on my decisions and my choices and she made her decision. And this sounds bad because it sounds like I forced her into the decision, but I knew going into the situation what she had chosen. She was going to let things work through until the school made her leave.

After a long loooooonnnnggg talk I said to her, "Going into this discussion I knew what your decision was, and you know what your decision is, you just have to find the courage to make it." And it was true. It was like talking to myself from 3 years ago. I can't believe how similar our lives are...

So in short my roommate is going home.

I don't know what will happen now but I love the friends I've made here and I wouldn't trade this experience for the world. I'm glad I got to know these people and they've gotten to know me. I hope that my roommates future is everything she wants and that she just stays happy.
