He was the turning point. 20 years of life had passed by, twenty years of living so passively. I always did let others get ahead, or take the first pick. Every guy I was really interested in I let them go by, because someone else deserved them right? I couldn't just let him go so easily. The stories started fast, he was interested in almost every girl I knew in a matter minutes. The old me would have just walked away and let them have him. I couldn't. Sometimes you have to fight for what you want. For the first time in my life I went for the guy I wanted. He turned out to be pretty amazing, and sweet. He taught me so much about myself, mostly to embrace myself.
