They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But I wonder, what else do “they” say? because the best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. As we grow older, some of us may notice that people that we thought would be in our lives forever aren’t there anymore, and as different newcomers enter into our lives the people that we once knew don’t seem to be around. When we progress in life some people will progress with us and help us grow by helping to encourage and inspire us, while others head in other directions with no correlation of the direction that we are heading into.
Sometimes you just have to turn the page to realize there’s more to your book of life than the page you’re stuck on. Stop being afraid to move on. Close this chapter of hurt, and never re-read it. It’s time to get what your life deserves, and move on from the things that don’t deserve you. Don’t try to fix what’s been broken in your past, let your future create something better. Don’t let past relationships and old mistakes ruin your future. Don’t let someone or something that didn’t make it in your life continue to hurt you. If you do, you’re still giving a portion of your life to something that no longer exists – it’s like letting your happiness slip into a black hole. Learn the lesson, release the pain, and move on. Scars remind us of where we have been, not where we are headed.
People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly. Some people are meant to be in our lives forever, and some are meant to be in our lives for a few years, while others may be only be there for a few months. Don’t stress over the people that have come and gone from your life, just remember the good times that you shared with them, and use what you learned from dealing with them to help you progress towards your dreams and aspirations because to make a difference in someone’s life you don’t have to be wise, rich or beautiful…you just have to be there when they need you.
