FOR THE GIRL WHO FEELS ALONE IN A CROWDED ROOM

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Just the other day I was at an event that the college ministry I attend was putting on. I was in a room full of people I knew, full of people I loved, full of people I live life alongside, but I somehow still felt alone.

Young, Wild, and Free.

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you hear this phrase? For me it was maybe the words of a tattoo on a reckless teenage girl who enjoys sneaking out, getting drunk, and sleeping with every guy she meets.

I know what you’re thinking, “you’ve been married since you were a Freshman?!”
