Within the last five years, I have lost family members, who at one time, I was close with. Family members who were young and still had a lot of life to live but were taken from our earth too soon. When someone passes away there are many things that cross our minds, things we wish we could have said, amends we wish we could have made before they died. From my own experience to you, don't let things that won't matter a year or five years from now affect your relationships with people who matter to you, especially before it's too late.
I wish I was able to express to them how sorry I was for walking away from them, for not fighting to keep them in my life. I wish I could tell them how much I wanted to help them, that I was too young to understand.
But, I can't tell them these things, so instead I make them proud of me and I choose to remember how it feels to lose someone you lost touch with over a relationship that could have been easily repaired with a simple conversation and understanding.
I lost family members before they were actually gone.
In a blink of an eye your entire world can change, don't lose sight of who and what is most important in your life, before it's too late.
