Everyone Will Eventually Leave… and That’s Okay

Lately, I feel like everyone’s been pulling away from me. Then I realized that maybe it’s a good thing too, because I’ve been really depressed lately and I don’t want to spread my toxicity to everyone. As much as I want people to stay with me and say that everything’s going to be okay, I don’t want them to feel obligated to stay around just because I’m not acting my usual self. That’s not fair.

So, if you are my friend and you feel like I’m dragging you down, I won’t hold you back from leaving. You are free to explore with your other friends. I won’t think and talk bad about you, I will wish you well instead. And if ever you choose to return, I’ll be here waiting with open arms.

Sunset

Every sunset is an opportunity to reset.

And for you who chose not to leave, thank you. I know there are days I’m not really likeable because of my mood swings, and yet you’re still here sticking around with my crazy self… you deserve an award. Again, thank you! I’m lucky to have you in my life. Know that I appreciate every single one of you.

Every day is not a good day. Choose to understand. Choose to be kind. The world needs more kindness.

  1. Yes, everyone leaves. And that’s just how life is. Life is brutal. Life is unforgiving. I, personally, have seen the most bitter side of it. And I have come to accept it (long ago) that no one stays forever.

    But if you need to know, I’m always around – spiritually, that is.

    But you also need to know I’m fighting my own depression. And the sad thing is, I am fighting a losing battle. And while I will always be there for you, I cannot guarantee how long more I can stay on. Because I might never be here on that day to see you stand up again and recover fully.
