Make Your Move

on

Recently, I have came to the realization…

That people are usually (including myself) projecting a certain version of themselves. So, what happens when you notice it from someone close / or so you thought was close, to you? Call them out? Ride it out?

There comes a point where one needs to acknowledge and accept that people grow apart and away. But what happens when 1 of the 2 cannot do that? Does it have to be mutual? No.

Does that make you a bad person? Some may say so, I say fuck it. Why waste another second with someone or do something to please anyone other than yourself. That’s called acting. And that’s not the full time job I signed up for. This life is so precious and short…you don’t even realize all the things passing by you until it’s literally 100 meters ahead on the highway. Now what? Cry and weep about your past or how things used to be?

Nah.

Do you.

If we spent all this time crying and sulking, we’d be running in circles never achieving satisfaction or happiness. It would all be temporary until another shitty experience happens. But I don’t even consider it shitty. It’s life. If it were easy, we’d all be successful and robots. What is the point if we’re not experiencing, growing, risk-taking, failing, and thriving? We would be empty.

In all seriousness…growing apart from anything is hard to do. Remember that day you didn’t want to play with Barbie’s anymore, and instead reached for that tube of mascara? Dramatically accurate.

Change is natural and completely necessary. We can either do it with or without those around us. Neither is better or worse than the other. But it’s how we conduct the change and what we want ourselves to be that makes the difference. Admitting the truth is step 1…and the WORST step. It’s like ripping a bandaid. Once it’s off, sure the wound is exposed, vulnerable to other infections, but also needs to breathe and heal. Being covered up by this temporary shield is just like being suffocated and restricted from any other possibilities of growth. Whether you like it or not, life will go on, with or without you. So what are you going to do about it?
