Note to self: It’s okay for relationships to fade

I was recently looking at pictures from school. We were a group of girls, inseparable and making life-long promises to each other. Ten years later, we’re all in different parts of the world, doing different things. Some of us stuck to our paths, some of us chose new ones. It’s funny how something that once meant everything now means nothing. But is it that? Nothing?

Not every relationship can be permanent and that’s okay.

Every person we meet has a role to play in our lives. Some to teach us who we are, and some to teach us who we aren’t. This one is to all those friends whose lives crossed paths with mine. We may not still be friends but you’ve made a difference in mine, and I hope I did the same for you.

Just because one relationship falls apart, our worlds shouldn’t. We’re lucky to have temporary travellers, leaving us with memorable experiences and lessons.

Hold on to them, relive them, learn from them.
