Nobody is perfect. But nobody feels that fact more deeply and personally than teenagers. Rapidly changing body, rapidly changing body chemistry, a rush of new feelings, self-admitted ignorance, inadequacy, awkwardness, new strength with little understanding of how to use it, overwhelming wonder at the problem of fitting in, fear that you never will, relief, gratitude, feelings of loyal obligation when finally connection is made to someone similar to yourself, who shares, has understanding of all these haunting, unnerving, endlessly worrying feelings. Buds. There is no better way to describe the relationship. A rock to stand on, betrayal would be unthinkable. Buds. Buds forever, for as long as this uncertainty, this awkward, aching, unsettling transition lasts. Buds forever.
