All the usual symptoms.
It happens every time.
Because you know that seeing just that one haunting face could throw you for a loop.
And not just any loop.
A loop that your mother never prepared you for when she taught you all important life lessons via bedtime stories.
It's too much to handle.
But this time, it will be different.
This time, you'll hold your head high.
This time, you'll be the one causing fear instead of feeling it.
This time, you'll be confident and maybe, just maybe, flash 'em a smile or two.
This time, you'll throw on your best pair of heels and not spend too much time on your make up.
This time, you'll act like it was no big deal.
This time, it will be different.
Because, this time, you are different.
The seasons will change, ready or not.
The same goes for people.
Face it fearlessly. You have no need to worry.
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive.
