"Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist."- Jennifer Lawrence

As a child 

You only have one thing that is your own.


The thing with the ability to let you smile all the time, jump on trampolines without worrying about your chest, and hang out with boys without questioning dating them. 

This one thing is yours and only yours. 

And you never even knew it was there, 

Until it was gone.
