Not everything lasts.

We have all been there - looking at someone and thinking they are always going to be a part of our lives, and before we know it, we never expect all that fun to end. If you are anything like me, you plan for the future and what steps you need to take to get there. You want to meet as many people as you can because they will help shape you and your future. A majority of the time, these plans do not always go as planned. We are surrounded by an ever changing environment, and as we make decisions based on certain circumstances, they create our behaviors.

I have found one of the toughest lessons being able to accept that not everything lasts. We have people that have been a part of our lives for years, some only for a couple months.

Some of these people leave you by choice, others are forced out for the wellbeing of yourself.

Some people teach us lessons and make happy memories, memories that will last a lifetime.

Some will enter our lives for comfort and support during the difficult times, but leave as soon as the hard times pass.

We have some people that teach us to love ourselves for who we are, without trying to change us. They teach us to embrace ourselves with a positive attitude, no matter what life throws at us.

After a heartbreak, some come to patch our heart and make us believe it is possible to love someone again.

As some of you may know, I am a strong believer that God has a plan for everyone. Life is unpredictable and can change suddenly, but regardless, we have an impact on everyone around us, and God's plans are detailed and have a purpose, even if they seem painful at first. We need people in our lives, important people to help us learn, mature, and shape ourselves. No matter what, we will eventually end up where we belong.
