In this life, I’ve grown up having several close knit groups of friends, and for that I am grateful. But in recent years, since high school, I’ve noticed more and more people moving on and figuring out life for themselves, which is awesome. Its just been a struggle lately overcoming those lost connections. Yet, people deserve to live their own lives, and do what is best for them, as selfish as it may sound. This is something I’m learning to deal with. In recent months, past nine or so, I’ve had many great friends that just seem to up and disappear when its convenient for them, and that sucks. But it’s not all bad.
I’m learning to appreciate the new faces and encounters that I’ve been given opportunity to experience, and I believe that is more important than dwelling on the past, as hard as it may sound. To dwell on the past is to want something that once was, to relive those Incredible moments in time that are so fond in my heart. But instead, I’m realizing that It is better to appreciate those moments as great memories and not try to relive them. Instead, I’m going out into this world and doing my best to create new distinct memories and experiences and relationships with people that I might not meet otherwise.
I’ve found myself taking the people still in my life for granted, and missing those from my past. This has been a bad cycle in my life and hasn’t helped me at all. Instead, I am going to start appreciating the people that are still around, and accept new faces into my life. I think this will work.
