When people tell us not to take things personally, it’s always easier said than done.
You have to believe that those things you’ve been wanting to feel aren’t lost forever, but rather lying dormant while you gather up the experiences and tools and strength to carry you through your life.
Sometimes I look back and feel remorse at how many people close to me I have lost this year. But now I am learning to see it instead as how much confidence I must have finally gained in order to put my emotional needs first.
1. Nothing feels familiar or comforting anymore.
We spend all this time trying to “figure it out” when we’re being led there all along.
Treading water through my twenties. Just exerting all this energy to stay afloat. Never moving forward or back. Just existing right above the surface.
Not alone like by yourself, but alone like when you feel so empty and you can’t think of one person to talk to.
This one is for when you or anyone that you have or had feelings for is caught up in the one-dimensional parts of this world.
I’m learning that I can change what I want to change and continue to pursue the pieces of my life that are working without any regard to anyone else.
The value of your friendship does not lie in length of duration.
