I'm the type of person that loves making connections with people. If we're going to become friends, I want to build a connection with you and get to know you. I truly believe that people come into your life for a reason, so if God brought you into my life, may it be work, school, or just a random conversation on the train, I want to get to know you.

Some relationships get deeper than others. Those ones that do dive a bit more into the soul. These are the people you end up spending the most time with, having the deepest conversations with, and opening up a bit more with. These relationships were built off of time. Hours of going on adventures or talking on the phone until one of you fall asleep. Making memories and inside jokes only you both can reference. These relationships take time to build. You grow with these people and learn a lot about yourself and others. These relationships become a part of you.

There comes a time in some relationships where you may start to feel different. You feel like you care too much. You wonder if the other person is in it as much as you are. You wonder why that person isn't reciprocating feelings anymore. You wonder what you may have done wrong to make that person drift away. You start to feel like things are changing... you're changing. What might have caused this to happen?

Not all relationships and friendships are meant to last. People come into our lives and foster a bond with us, casual or intense, for a reason. Good or bad, everything happens with a purpose, and if people are truly meant to be in your life, they'll come back into it.

Sometimes, we need to remind ourselves that it's okay to step away from a relationship. It's okay to walk out of someone's life if you feel like you don't belong in it anymore. We're not meant to stay in one place forever. Sometimes we need to step away to grow, even if it's without that person.

If you feel like you don't fit in someone else's world anymore, it's okay to step away. It's okay to not build a connection anymore. It is completely okay to let go of connections and people. Sometimes that may be the best decision you could ever make.

If they're meant to be a part of your life, they'll come back eventually. But for now, remember that it's okay to walk out if you feel like you don't belong anymore. It's okay to lose connection even though all we want to do is grow with them.
