“Things change. And friends leave. Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
– Stephen Chbosky
Change is one of the scariest things that anyone has to experience. The sad truth is that is it completely inevitable and something that everyone has to go through.
The emotions that you feel all throughout a period of change are all valid. It is okay to miss the past, it is okay to wish that things would go back to how they were, in a way it can feel like a breakup.
But there is nothing that you can do to stop change from happening. Time is continuous and will stop at no one’s mercy.
If you give yourself the grace to feel whatever it is that you are feeling in the moment than it makes the actual process of things changing a million times easier. You have to process things to understand and in a sense get over them and move on.
In the end, there is no way to guarantee that you have fully moved on or gotten over a situation. It is a scary, unpredictable and stressful thing to go through and experience change.
The process of accepting that change is going to happen and that time will pass is a terrifying thing to realize. Unfortunately, it is also very necessary. The world is changing every single second and we have to adapt more than ever before.
We are all lost and confused but you are still here. You are doing great sweetie, so keep up the good work!
