They say sometimes you meet people for a season, a reason, or a lifetime.
I’m a stark individualist, though everyone I meet has influenced me,
Whether it be positively or negatively.
I used to think being self-contained and uninfluenced by people made me strong,
Now I see that I learn who I am through other people,
And other people see their own reflection in me.
Everything in life is impermanent, even love,
Don’t believe the fairytale of a happily ever after.
Love may last days, weeks, months, or till death do us part.
Expecting the worst is just stunting growth and openness to new experiences.
Ride the wave of life and love as it comes because inevitably it’s a joyful and sorrowful ride,
No matter how long it lasts.
