The Daily Post’s – Crush crushed

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “First Crush.”

Well …my heart desires at the time when I was in my teens speaks of a different language than what was whispering in my mind.

I was a late bloomer. I was determined to finish my degree and to pursue my dreams. I do not think of boys or even men seriously until my mid 20’s.  

Except for one boy who almost stole my heart and he was just a “crush”.

My ambitions in life will be “crushed” if I choose what my heart desires, besides “He” is just a crush.  Though my heart was hurting at the time of my decisions NOT to encourage the blossoming friendships… my mind was strong enough to pursue what I think is best for me and my future.  He was not ambitious enough and our views in life are more like water and oil.

There he is walking with a young toddler and probably his wife or partner.  He didn’t see me or perhaps recognize me as it was so many years passed already.  I do not have a child yet but is already married.  I smiled and glad that he seems content with his family and simple life.  That was 7yrs ago or so… not sure anymore but I haven’t seen him since every time I go back and visit my parents, relatives, and friends.

Perhaps that is my main point … I don’t want just a “simple life” and be content where I know I can achieve more.  The more I achieve in life the better as I am not thinking about myself alone… I need to help my aging parents financially.  Sometimes we only get one chance in life. So with that, I made my decision to be wiser and that to end the beginning with my “crush” is good enough reason.

After a decade I had a good career that I was proud of, a good husband who is very supportive of me of what I want in my life (not just being a trailing housewife, a mother, and an expat in a desert Country), finally have my young son, a blog to write when I have the time and leisure to do so and I want to travel the World while I am able to.  I probably have a different path in life if I have been sidetracked by my crush!

So what can you say about your first crush?
