I keep trying to write this post, and I keep getting nowhere. So I decided that maybe I could have some very special quotes write it for me.
In this life I’ve had many people come and go from my life, but there’s one recent loss that really messed with me. I decided I needed to walk away for a while.
“Sometimes you have to let go to see if there was anything worth holding on to.”
I walked away, and so did she. I still love her very much. But…
“At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life.”
We have both changed.
“I think that the only reason why people hold onto memories so tight, for so long is because memories are the only things that don’t change, even when people do.”
The part I’ve had so much trouble with is healing. And then the good doctor had something to say about it all.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
“Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and NEVER regret anything that made you smile.”
She did make me smile. And I her. She was one of the closest friends I have ever had, and that is why I will never regret her. And I will never stop loving her. But now I have to forgive myself for looking out for me and walking away when our paths no longer aligned. I have to let this go. I have to let myself heal.
I love you, always, dear friend. I wish you all the things that make you sparkle.
… I’m just not one of them.
