Not so perfect

Bathers, 1950 by George Tooker
It was her first time in the girls' hostel. Until then she had never shared a room with anyone. Being a team was something her system could not understand. This was a whole new experience altogether and she opted for it. Little did she know that she had to wait in a queue until the one inside finished her bath turn by turn. She looked away scornfully cursing her mates.

How would she know it is okay to wait for someone as long as they are friends ? It is okay to lose some time for someone if you can make a good friend. It is okay to give up something that is yours for someone as long as you make moments and memories that are unforgettable.

It is really okay to not be so perfect all the time. Somebody please tell her.
