First Love

Posted in my life with tags , on June 4, 2009 by tamishields

heartWe all have a first love. We all have regrets about that person and we all learned something about ourselves through that relationship. This charm was from my first love. It was soldered onto the bracelet so it wouldn’t come off and now I would have to have someone cut it off if I want it removed. So, I leave it on. 

It reminds me of the person I used to be and the one he and his family helped me become. I’ve never been popular or had lots of friends. I’m not incredibly athletic nor academic so I didn’t fit in with any group in particular. With him, I fit in. I got along with his family really well and was a much more positive person because of him. He and his Dad are very analytical thinkers so for the first time in my life I was invited to view the Bible and my faith as something I could challenge, question and grow in. I am changed because of them. Because of that, I leave this charm on my bracelet.

Who was your first love and how did he/she influence who you are today?

On a side note, the arrow part of the heart pierces my hand when i clap too much so he is still causing me some pain even 13 years after the break-up 🙂
