Didn’t know how to “Be Yourself” around Becky Hernandez, the first girl I fell in love with in 7th grade. So I blew it!
Then 40 years later I found her on Facebook, and it was like the Universe was giving me a 2nd chance to do it right.
But 40 years changes a person. I was no longer that googly-eyed 13-year-old that could barely say hello to her. And thank goodness, because he was blinded by love and it took him a loooooooong time to see she just wasn’t into him.
And now we’re friends on Facebook, and I get to be the “Be Yourself” that I am today: friendly and supportive.
