it’s really weird to reflect on someone who used to be a huge part of your life, and now is either barely there, or isn’t there at all.
i realized that some people just act as a catalyst. you go through so much shit with them, whether it be good, bad, or neither- and in the end, you’re the one who’s in a completely different state, while they seem to have barely budged, if they were even affected at all.
you think that it was all for nothing. but really, your change was completely dependent on them. and most times, it’s for the better.
you see that they’re the same person, despite any front. maybe they won’t see it, but you see that everything happened for a reason. and even if you feel like shit, you gained at least something- even if it was just an experience- through it.
i for one, realized a lot.
