Tonight I went to my youth group for the first time in quite a while, and it’s so different now. I don’t have my friends there anymore.. They’ve all moved on. Since I’m out of high school, youth just seems so strange to me. I don’t feel like I relate to them at all. Luckily my brother and his girlfriend are there, at least I have a place with them
A college and careers group is starting, and I’m just super pumped for that. I’m excited to be able to hang out with people my age, not people 4 years younger. The maturity level is just so much lower than I’m used to when I go back to youth, I’m pretty excited to get away from that. I think this group will be so good for the people my age, people who are trying to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. I’m glad that I’ll be hanging out with people who can actually relate to me and understand how I’m feeling
Plus I miss my old youth friends so badly (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) and I hope that some of them decide to come out to the group so we can reconnect. Some of them were such good friends before, and now I only see them once in a blue moon. It makes me sad, but I guess that’s just a part of growing up, isn’t it? I do hope that I get to be able to rebuild at least some of those amazing friendships I used to have, though. There are some great people that used to come to my youth group that I really look up to, and I miss having them around
I feel like I’m rambling….
But ANYWAYS. I’m looking forward to moving on from youth to the college and careers group, growing more spiritually, and also just diving into this new part of my life, which will be university in several short months, with some people around to support me who can actually understand what I’m going through
Sorry for the all over the place rambling post….. My brain feels scattered tonight
