I think people who fall in love “young” are scared. When you’re in high school, you kind of know that who you’re dating isn’t the person you’ll be with forever. But when you’re in your twenties, have a life going for you and have been dating someone for awhile, it’s scary. Because that could be the person you spend forever with but you don’t know that, no one knows that; no one can predict the future. I think that’s why a lot of people say “you’re too young to know.” It’s easier to blame age and being naive over true feelings and what they can become. I don’t think it’s that you’re too young. It’s just a scary thought to think about your future and who will be there next to you your entire life. You’re young because everything is happening now and it’s easier to just focus on the present than to imagine the future. And that’s okay. It’s okay to be scared of that love because it can be forever and when it’s not, it’ll probably be your biggest heartbreak before forever. And that’s okay too. This love at this point in our lives isn’t a promise; this love is trust. Trusting yourself and the other person to continuously love each other until you’re both ready for promise love, forever love, future love. And that love, when the time is right, is okay too.
