People grow, they change and sometimes you say goodbye. Somewhere along lifes journey, through the clusters of obstacles and triumphs you’ve grown and steered down a path different from the one you’ve been raised to follow. You start to ask yourself questions about where you see yourself in 5 years, 10 years, maybe even 20 years, and start setting goals to reach those benchmarks.
One of the greatest things about life is that everyone is on a journey and at some point your journeys collide and you proceed down a bumpy road together. You make new friends, build great memories and learn things about yourself. As you evolve, so do the relationships you engross yourself in. People who once played a dominant role in your life, sometimes fade into becoming extras. It doesn’t mean that they become antagonists. They are not working against you. You’ve simply hit a fork in the road and are now moving down two different yet great paths.
The challenge in life is letting go of relationships you once held on to dearly and giving people room to become who they are. If they are not with you, it doesn’t mean that they are against you. Everyone is digging through the rubble to create a path that is right for themselves. Your loved ones may dig a path that steers away from yours and you may not understand the path others are trying to create for themselves. You may even disagree with it. But everyone needs to create a path that they feel will lead them to happiness.
