I want to start this post by saying thank you to all of the people that I have in my life right now. You’re the reasons why I’m becoming stronger and stronger as days go by. I can’t imagine my life being this happy without you in it. May God bless you all for existing in this world and be part of my messy yet still wonderful life.
While I was scrolling on my Instagram feed, I found this motivational line saying that for us to accumulate something, we have to sacrifice something too. And at some point, the ending of something means starting something better as well. It’s amazing to think that we need to give up certain things first just to receive better things in exchange. It’s also great to know that something may end but our life isn’t over yet.
Some of you might already know that I just lost one of my family members a month and 4 days ago, to be exact. But this is just part of this post. I lost some of my friends, a classmate, a college crush, a pet and even some close family members.
I don’t understand how I was able to gain so many friends before because I’m not really that friendly. I prefer to be alone and spend time with myself more often. But nothing lasts forever so I lose some of them too in the long run. Some just walked away and some, I left them because they’re no good for me. I value my time and space.
I was in my last year in high school when one of my classmates died due to a vehicular accident. We’re not that really close but I won’t forget him because he used to tell me that I look like a doll when I wore makeup to join a declamation contest. He’s my friend’s boyfriend too at that time so I know he’s a nice guy. It was too sudden.
A year after I graduated from college, I received the sad news from my best friend telling me that my college crush died due to bone and lung cancer. I had a crush on him for three years so he really had a good place in my heart back then. He was my inspiration to study well even though I don’t really like my course.
I’m a dog lover so when one of my dogs died a year ago, I got so sad. My Mom called me one day telling me that he’s gone because he accidentally ate something with poison. We adopted him from my Mom’s working place, along the highway.
And recently, my Dad passed away. I know that end is part of our life and I always look forward to much better days to come. I always believe that if something left, there’s something better coming. And no matter how difficult to accept the end of something, I try my best to look on the brighter side of it.
It might be an end of a bad relationship, the death of a loved ones or pet, I know it’s easy to say that we must move on but it’s what we need to do. We have other good reasons to live and let’s focus on that. Let’s just keep in mind that God is balancing our lives by taking back what He gave to us and lead us to what we truly deserve.
