There was a time I looked forward to each day. There was a time when I was ready.
I now know I wasn't ready. I now know I won't ever be ready.

I will never live as I had in the past. I will never love as I had in the past. I will never experience as I had in the past.
I finally understand why people live in the past - for some, it is the only place where happiness still exists.
