All of us are on our own journey in life. Even though we may align with our family, friends and romantic partners initially, it's actually pretty normal to grow apart at times. When we seek out clarity for ourselves and decide that we want to walk a new path, sometimes we're faced with a "choice" between ourselves and those we care about. Do we set out on this new path and forget anyone who feels otherwise, or do we snuff ourselves and stay with those people to prove we care? Well, that “choice” is just an illusion. Anytime anyone does something to progress their life, it should be celebrated by all, even if it means that you have to go your separate ways for some time. It doesn't mean that everything between you ends. Yes, things may be different, but that doesn't mean it’ll be worse. The people who are meant to be in your life will always be a part of your life. A whole world with billions of people, and we still bump into people we've thought about in unlikely places. You can move forward with your life without forgetting anyone who couldn't accompany you. When the time is right, they will be back. The time spent together will have a chance to continue. Never put your life on hold for anyone, because your life is still moving forward. Even while you're together.
