You wake up each morning. You see the sun rise and set. You see the leaves grow and wither. And you see people you once knew pass by like they have never met you at all. We try to seek for answers. Why things have to change. Why things get so complicated. And why even if we try so hard for things to stay we just can’t. We watch as our loved ones die, some who found shelter in your arms before has now found better. And the ones, who we thought we could trust, have slapped us with their lies. We try to bind them with shackles and chains. Hoping that these would make them stay.  But overtime, these chains rust and so as their feelings towards us. And even if it hurts, in the end we just have to set them free. For them to be happy even if it means we’re not going to be a part of it. This act itself hurts us to the point where we can’t take it anymore. Slowly, we die inside. We realize how much we have been used. How much we have been taken for granted. And what’s worst, we gave them permission to do these things to us. We feel unwanted. We feel hurt and then, we feel worthless. We realize that in this world. We can only rely on ourselves. We distance ourselves to others because of our fears of getting hurt. And even if there are people who try so hard so that we could open ourselves to them, we just can’t. And in the end, they gave up on us the way we have given up on ourselves. Some end their lives immediately, thinking that it wouldn’t make a difference if they were still here or not. And some of us find the courage to stand up and fight.  And somehow say that there is always a reason why we were here in the first place. We just had to get up and learn from all the things that have happened to us. That there was always a purpose why things happened the way they did and why people have once been a part of our lives. It’s just a matter of how we handle them. I guess we just had to love ourselves first. And feel that we are truly worth it, that we deserve to be loved. that sometimes, we should think of ourselves first before others and that even if people would come and go, we would always give them something that they would always remember, that we have been one of the persons, who have changed their lives or have touched them in small ways or big, And that when the parting day comes, all we could do is smile.
