Things Change. People Change. Life doesn’t stop for anybody. I look at pictures and reminisce the events that happened during the taking of the photo. Those actions and smiles that I miss during sad times in this life. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures of me crying or being sad to look back to, but who would like to see a picture of a girl crying? No one, well, except me, because it shows the reality of the moment.
There are friends that come and go, while a few stay beside you even though years have passed and you’re not in the same school or section. They might not be perfect but the differences among friends are the mighty glues of their friendship, as people say. Along the way, you grow up and they grow up, whether you like it or not. The important thing is that you stick with each other through thick and thin. Most of them were meant to serve as lessons to us so that we may learn to choose better friends in the future.
While going through this rough road called “Life”, you tend to trip or fall at times. Some of your dreams turn into heartbreaking failures. Hope turns into despair. Crying in the middle of the night because you remembered something you once wanted and never got. But, without pain how can we know joy? It’s not about the fall but rather getting up from it and learning more about life. I remember seeing this quote I saw in Mendel’s homeroom, “Life is the best school. God is the best teacher. Problem is the best assignment. Failure is the best revision”.
We can never change the past nor relive it, so wouldn’t you just rather not dwell on it and continue with the present that would be a yesterday tomorrow? You should learn from the past rather than always thinking about those stupid “what if’s”. Life’s too short for regret and misery. So, when you fall down while walking in this road, get up and continue walking.
