if only we could stop time



Have you ever feared how the present disappears? Since I was in junior high school, I’ve always wished that time was able to stop. Maybe the times I wish for that are when I’m enjoying my present the most. I have a feeling that I’ve started to fear more things as I got older. I never thought that going on a plane was scary, but recently the slightest turbulence makes my breathing difficult and my hands get sweaty. I used to love roller coasters, but now I don’t understand why people ride them. I loved traveling alone, but now I prefer to go with someone else. I loved spending time alone, but now I can’t stand being alone and seek someone’s presence.
