Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don't want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they're amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who's brave enoughto climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree.
I stumbled across this quote a couple of months ago, and found it quite true. I had never thought about love that way, but being a teenage girl in highschool, it makes perfect sense. All of the boys go for the gorgeous, flirtatious girls that are easy to get...just like the apples at the bottom of the tree. They dont want to work very hard for good girls that they, deep down inside, know that they truly want because they are afraid that they might fall and get bruised. The thought of this scares them, that's why they go for what is easily obtainable to them already. Because of this, the girls at the "top of the tree" feel like they arent good enough or special enough to be loved by any of these boys. What they (well, I guess I should say we) dont understand is that just because they dont feel like they are noticed, they are...and they are just as good as the apples on the bottom. When the right guy is willing to come along and climb all the way up to the top of the tree for you, that's when you realize that all of your time spent waiting and staying true to your values at the top was well worth it.
