But then I realized that I was holding on to something that didn't exist anymore, that the person I missed didn't exist anymore. People change, and we can wish they wouldn't all day long, but that never works.
True as it's said. And to be honest, this is something we quite often forget. At least I do. At times it can feel as if whatever you're doing got easier. But do know that it is YOU that got better at doing it, and not the "thing" that got easier ;
This is true in relationships and also pertains to moving, having to say goodbye to family and friends, making a career change, saying goodbye to old habits/lifestyles,etc. Be Brave enough to say goodbye and life will reward you with a new hello :)
