“Some People Just Can’t Handle Us”


Casey always had a way of making me feel like I was amazing no matter what kind of crappy mood I was in. One day when I was complaining to Casey about how some boy that I liked wasn’t into me too she said something I have never forgotten: “Some people just can’t handle us”. Even though it is not a particularly deep or insightful comment it instantly made me feel better. Casey was always someone I looked up to (and still do) and for her to group us together as “one” made me realize that it was this particular boy’s problem that he couldn’t appreciate my “awesomeness” (to use a Casey and Jamie word). Now, whenever a boy doesn’t reciprocate my feelings I think about what Casey said that summer day and realize it’s his loss, not mine, and I move on.
