Little Regrets That Matter
Someone once told me 'You should say and do as you feel without being reckless'. I have respect and a bit of jealousy for people that are open about their feelings and have no inhibitions. It must take immense courage to speak, show, and not worry. Everyone has these small regrets, even if it's something small like not telling a family member bye before they leave the house, or wishing an acquaintance at work. After all, we have nothing to lose by these small acts, yet we struggle to perform them.
I met a boy today, and no I didn't develop an interest in him or fall head over heels for him. He helped me out and I wanted to tell him bye as I passed him by and I just left instead. The ironic part however, was a question for the IELTS speaking exam (which was why we were both there) 'why do you think adults express themselves differently as compared to children?'
And I answered 'A fear of criticism, judgements and, vulnerability'
