People outgrow relationships, it happens all the time. It’s important to accept that not as a loss, but as a part of life. If we spend too much time trying to cling to what was, we miss what the future has for us. The people who stay with us are the ones who grow with us, in love, in friendship, in respect. When someone knows your heart, when someone recognizes your soul, no matter where you go or what you do after that, you’ll know each other forever, even if you don’t see one another or talk again. I’ve learned there’s only one real way to know if a relationship is one that will grow with you and stay with you and that’s time, day after day it just keeps on being whatever it needs to be.
