I think it’s important
to remember that when it comes to life,
things never stay the same.
Whether it be friendships, relationships, families, homes, or yourself-
nothing is permanent.
Although that sounds bittersweet,
to say goodbye to all the things that you once knew,
it also brings new adventures and experiences.
And I think it’s important to remind myself
every now and then
that it is okay to change
regardless of the people around you and if they open up to it or not.
You will change but a part of you will always be the same.
Hold on tight to that part
because that is the part you never want to lose.
Seasons change and so does the weather.
People walk in and out;
they will open doors just to close them.
And you will close up and then open up again,
but don’t ever lose yourself.
Let yourself accept the change
but don’t forget who you are.
I hope you never have to lose yourself
to find out who you are
and the pieces you want to keep.
Because I did.
