I know this to be true from a past experience. I met this guy at a Ken Ham event last year. Long story short, He obviously liked me. Anyway, other than that day I met him, that was the only time I saw him. But yet I did everything in my power to find him again.
Love at first sight?
Maybe…..but he probably never gives me a second thought. 😕
(Getting on with the point to this post. 😉)
As my sister said to me a week or so ago, “When are you gonna stop talking about this guy? One day when you’re married, your husband is gonna find out about how you went on and on about this boy and think he really meant something to you.”
So I made a decision that if God wanted me to see him again and if it really was “love at first sight”, then one day I would see him again. But you can’t live your life on possible relationships based on your unbalanced emotions as a teenager. You can’t let a teenage crush stop you from maturing into adulthood and finding a true relationship some day.
If you let it get in your way, years from now you’ll look back and have regrets because of your stupidity.
Or even worse, if you convince yourself that that crush really did mean something to you then if you ever find someone else you’ll always think back to that crush and feel sorrow that you can’t have him/her or you’ll feel guilty for “abandoning” that person who probably doesn’t even remember your name.
Dont let your uncertainty as a teenager prohibit your happiness in the future. Let Jesus take the steering wheel of your life and trust that He’ll make things work together for good.
For those of you who are still wondering why I chose the title that I did for this post, here is why: In this post we discovered that “Love at First Sight” for teens may not be love at all but simply an infatuation or crush brought on by unbalanced hormones. Therefore it really wasn’t love so hence it couldn’t really be lost if it was never there. But in our upset minds (us teens of course) we saw it as a lost love. I revealed the truth about it not being love at all and therefore what was once a mystery is now a secret unleashed.
I never wanted to admit to myself that this “love of mine” was indeed an infatuation, but I realized this confession was essential for a started path to happiness in my future.
I hope this helped someone out there struggling. If so let me know below!
