Advice is a form of nostalgia

“People want different things at different points in their lives. When you’re a teenager, romance is a novel and exciting idea and a ‘relationship’ just sounds so ‘adult,’ doesn’t it. But come early 20s, you’re in the process of getting your life and shit together, so a relationship isn’t anywhere on your list of priorities, but that doesn’t mean you’re against the occasional sexy-fling-casual-fun-time. And later on when you feel secure about your occupation and life situation and who you are as a person, then yeah, maybe you’re more open to some kind of relationship. Different people want different things at different points in their different lives…”

 

Something I told someone. She liked the explanation a lot. But I suppose I was really speaking from a present situation at the time. And now, it’s time to accept my own advice, swallow my own medicine, for lack of a better cliche.
