Ever thought of what roles people play in our daily travels that we call life?
Ever wondered why we come across the experiences that we go through?
People come to our lives for a reason. Some merely wave a hand and sprint right past us. Some engage us in a little conversation, jog alongside with us and then move on. Some, however, become our running buddies for life.
So how do we know who stays and who passes by? Should we treat our buddies differently from our acquaintances?
Well, I would like to think of everyone as a running buddy. I believe each person that crosses our path has something to teach us. We learn from everyone regardless of the level of our relationship with them. I tend to attach myself to people, however, I don’t make it purely emotional. I have learned the art of letting go. This helped me make the most of my relationships without affecting my own being.
Things happen in our lives for a reason. We come across good times, not-so-good times, opportunities to stay in our lives, opportunities to move on. In all situations, we just have to learn what we could and go on to the next chapter. Similar to people, some things are permanent while some are temporary. It’s all up to us to make the most out of it.
Live in the moment and learn to let go. It’s just how it works. Besides, we can only hold on to what we can handle.
