Moving On, But Staying Here
In a recent interview, which lorms kindly translated (click here to read it), Eula said that David was afraid we would move on without him.
What I have to say about that is yes, I am going to move on. Two years is a long time, and as much as I love David, I can’t sit here, waiting for him without doing anything else. That simply wouldn’t be fair to my family, friends, or myself, for that matter. Whether or not David is here, I still have things to do, and a life to live. It will be more difficult to do those things without David to cheer me up at the end of a long day, but I have to do it for myself.
While David is getting these next two years, it is also a gift to us. Each moment is precious, and time moves on, whether we like it or not. Some of us who are in high school now will have graduated by the time he comes back, and all of us will have grown older; wiser, as David will, too. We all know he is going to change whilst he’s away, and even though I’m not ready to say goodbye to the David we know now, I am looking forward to getting to know the new David, and also the person I will be in two years’ time. He’s going to come back a better person, and I would like to do that to; move on, and improve myself. Only then, will I be able to look David in the eyes when I see him next.
He has impacted my life a lot, and I couldn’t stop the plethora of emotions I feel for him, even if I wanted to. There’s no stopping my support for him, or how much I want to hear more of his music.
So, let me rephrase my earlier statement. I am going to move on during these next two years, but when he comes back, I will be right here waiting. I may not be quite the same person I am now before he leaves, and I probably won’t be doing the same things, but if there I one thing that will never change for this Archie, spare to grow, it is my love, and support for David.
