Thoughts On Relationships In 2019
I got dinner with a friend of mine who I hadn’t been able to see because she’s in graduate school. We were having a great conversation while catching up. We moved into what we were thinking about in the New Year. This is a friend I have known for a decent amount of time, at least three years, but have only in the last year gotten closer to.
Anyway, we got onto the subject of how relationships can change in the blink of an eye. For me, I have understood friendships can be fleeting. Don’t get me wrong; I have some amazing friends in my life that are amazing and value friendships as much as I do.
Then, there are the friendships that while in them feel like they will last forever. For whatever reason, they change because of life-changing or unresolved issues. It’s becoming clear, that you should value the relationship while you have it. Then, move on when it’s gone.
I have more than enough strong friendships and an amazing family around me. Which helps compensate for losing one or two people over time. Some people will support you through anything and everything. While there are others, who for whatever reason can’t.
Overall, I want in 2019 is to find happiness, joy and true support in the relationships I have and will continue to have. Luckily, all the friendships I have, at this moment in time, have all of those things and more. For that, I am so incredibly grateful.
Through this conversation, I realized the friendships I have now are so much more positive and fulfilling than I could ever hope for. I am content and I am happy. Even more so when you add in my family and how amazing they always have been and still are, I realized it’s time to let go.
Let go of all the hurt that has been holding me back from being the person I’m supposed to be. I know it won’t happen overnight, but it’s time. More than time.
