There comes a time in life where you start to realize that even after all the fall outs, best friends/new friends, loyalties tested, mended and (seemingly) forever broken, hardships, laughter, tears, make-ups and break-ups there are still more to come. As much as you may feel comfortable with all of the people in your life at the moment (or uncomfortable even) some of the most significant relationships of your life may be ahead of you. Everything in life is temporary and your best friend today may fade into an associate years down the line, while someone you walk past daily may one day have a starring role in your life.
You just never know how your life is going to play out. This past year has showed me that in more ways than one. You can cross paths with someone that you never even fathomed having anything in common with, yet alone a conversation... to find yourself speaking multiple times a day and falling in love. All the while someone you had so much deep love and admiration for can turn into someone that you barely know - or want to - in the blink of an eye. We grow, we change and that's what we're here to do. Trying to keep someone in your life past their welcome is detrimental to all parties involved. Save yourself the headache, and look forward to what’s to come.
We never know what people are sent into our life for; season/reason/lifetime, and unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) many of them will be lessons. And that's not to sound like a bitter 'the cup's half empty' kind of person, it's more so to draw attention to the fact that change is okay. Letting things and people go is perfectly fine. Seasons come and seasons go. You wouldn't try wearing a leather jacket at the peak of summer, would you?
