It’s crazy how much our lives change from one year to the next… When I look back on where I was 1, 2, even 5 years ago from today via Timehop, I am constantly amazed at where I thought my life was heading at that time.
People drift in and out of our lives so quickly that sometimes years can pass and you can still feel them in your heart… Or you can feel the same pang of defeat over and over each time you hear something and look over your shoulder searching to share the moment with them and in turn only face silence.
I believe there is a reason that some people leave our lives, some people are not crucial characters in our stories. There are people who are only there briefly to get you through a tough time, or are there to put you in the difficult situation in the first place. There are some who understand that sometimes people just need a helping hand, and then there are others who push you down in order to raise themselves up. I think these people need your for their own story, but you don’t need them in yours, I think we’re supposed to let these people go.
It’s important to remember that you are the lead character of your own story and that if people are making you miserable, it’s time to make a stand. Stop holding on to people who don’t exist anymore; people change – you’ve changed.
I know it can be hard because sometimes we don’t get to call the shots on who sticks around anymore, but just remember that the people who are still standing by your side today are there for a reason.
It’s funny how sometimes goodnight can also mean goodbye…
