If someone‘s been quiet and comes back to you later, and if it doesn’t feel the same anymore, did it matter at all in the first place? People change. I know that! But if they really mattered, won’t you be glad to see them again? Won’t you have stories to tell them? Won’t you lash out at them for leaving that way? Won’t you wish they stayed this time?
Every time you came back, you have no idea how glad I was. I saved stories to tell you. I wasn’t angry cos I knew you had your own reasons to be quiet. But I did wish you never left this time.
Philosophy aside, people pretend well and they do leave. Most are there only when they want something from you or for mere fun. Meaningful friendships where you have each other’s back hardly exist anymore.
So this new year, stop holding on to people who keep letting you go. Remember, some are never good for you no matter how much you care about them.
Happy New Year!
