Melancholy Me

The other day, I thought I saw my old friend from primary school. I was about to run excitedly towards her until I realized the person was someone else, just a lookalike. It was then I got to thinking memories from those days when we'd hang like sisters, play everyday, share everything we had with each other. Whenever I had a new toy, I couldn't wait to show it to her, see the delight in her eyes and play with it with her. Often we exchanged toys for a couple of days so that we could both enjoy what the other was enjoying. It didn't matter if the other one had more to toys or more candies, we were just happy to share everything we had with one another.

It was the most unselfish, pure kind of friendship! I was heartbroken when her family moved away somewhere and I never saw her again. Growing up, I approached every new acquaintance with expectations of developing the same kind of friendship I had with that girl. As we grow older, however, we become more and more jaded and often find ourselves guarding against the greedy, the judgmental, the users, and the selfish out there.
It's times like these when you feel sad about broken relationships,
but grateful for the ones that are true and strong and always there no matter what!

I already wrote recently about how soft pastels help lighten up my mood. And so here is another look featuring this jumpsuit from APARTMENT 8 CLOTHING in the softest pink salmon pastel.
Can you tell I am feeling just a tad bit melancholy?
