Looking back at the past five months, I have met a good number of people. Most came and went.
I believe that the people we meet serve a purpose in our lives, and timing plays a big role. If it is meant to last, then it will. If not, then life goes on. In the end, we only have ourselves. It may sound a bit harsh, but we have no control over others, only ourselves. Instead of expecting something from others, we should try to understand them and why they are in our lives. If they are good to us and if possible, smile alongside them and appreciate them. Before, I was quite attached to the past, which kept me from accepting and truly living the present moment. I was resistant to change and unnecessary pressure was created. This hurt the person closest to me, but it hurt myself the most.
Life works in really interesting ways. I see the people in my life today and I never would have thought that things would turn out this way. It’s refreshing. Our life situations bring us together, to uplift each other and to keep each other in check during the struggles and growth we are experiencing individually, all while gaining new perspectives. For that, I am very thankful to them.
Thank you for coming into my life during a very delicate time. Your presence means a lot to me, more than you know. Even if we don’t communicate in the future, just know that you have positively impacted my life and I wish you the very best in your endeavors. You have my back. I love you all!
It’s important to let the people we appreciate know that we appreciate them. I’ve been pretty good at keeping up with that, so to those I’ve thanked recently in real life, you know who you are!! ❤
