We all have a person.
This could be the person you tell your deepest darkest secrets to. Or the person you call when you want to go out for a drink. They could even be your shoulder to cry on.
Whoever your person is and whatever they bring to the table for you, we all have ‘em.
You can have one, you could have two, hell, maybe even three.
But 9 times out of 10, these people change.
Your person when you were 15 years old is different from the person you have at 26 years old.
Why is that?
We change. And our needs change.
One of my best friends since I was 12 years old has and always will be one of my persons. But her role in my life changes as we both change.
One of my best friends from college was my person to party with, but we grew apart as our priorities changed.
When I didn’t have a boyfriend to tell my exciting career news to, my mom was my person.
Ya see, things change as we change. As we change, our relationships change.
It’s important to remember that people are placed in certain parts of our lives to teach us something. Whether we realized it at the time or not, every one of our persons have taught us something. The ones that stayed and even more so the ones that have left.
So remember this, you’re going to change, and so is everyone else. It’s okay if people leave your life, and if you leave theirs. Just make sure you cherish the memories made, and never forget what your person has taught you.
