But there’s a catch: This desire to do great things with your life — your ravishing hunger for depth and meaning — is a burden as much as it is a blessing.
You will carry it around with you at all times, like a chip on your shoulder.
These are the qualities of a nice person, a kind person, a loving person.
Somebody with a big, strong heart that will stay untainted even as the hearts of those around them are poisoned.
People don’t necessarily acquire this kind of a heart by waiting till marriage for sex; they usually have it to begin with.
You may destroy and remake the rest of yourself a dozen times during your journey though young-adulthood, but this piece of you…held deep down…stays intact.You will see friends get pregnant accidentally, far too young; and watch as it totally stalls and redirects the course of their young life.You will know somebody who got an abortion, and you’ll see how inconsolably guilt-ridden they are about it.And that defines the type person who waits: Somebody that is willing to do a hard thing for a noble reason, other peoples’ opinions be damned.You will find over the course of your journey that this attitude — this desire to pursue the most noble course of action — will start manifesting in other areas of your life.
It will make you unhappy fast if you’re not doing something fulfilling. It will tell you that you should be better…that you should be more. Move the toy slightly closer to his level every time does something nice.
