i understand people change. and i hate that they do. so many people i used to know and used to love. i guess i still do, up to some degree. but why can’t the good stay the same?
it’s hard to look back and see those people who meant the world to you. and it’s even harder to look at the present and realize that you’re not with them. that they’re not with you. that they’re out there, with the rest of the world. and that you’ll probably spend the rest of your life wanting to be with them. and it’s not about a matter of just reaching out to them. it’s a matter of them growing into a different person, and you just falling in love with who they use to be.
i don’t like living in the past. but the present isn’t that great either. here’s to hoping for a better future.
