"So Please Don't Leave Quite Yet" -Adam Agin

Old, familiar faces have been making their way into my dreams lately. Though, with the amount of sleep I'm getting (or lack thereof), I have to assume they've been on my mind a little more than simply passing by in the night. It honestly pains me to think about the points in time when our paths peeled apart from one another and continued on in diverging directions. I hate goodbyes and I'll never fully understand why we need to leave each other's lives. Yes, I'll admit that sometimes it is for the best, but more often than not, I don't see why we can't just continue growing our relationships and spheres and maybe redefine our roles in each other's lives rather than exit them altogether. I believe that every person brought into our lives serves some sort of purpose for both individuals. Even if it's the person you never actually meet, but you stop by in the hall to help pick up their dropped belongings. Maybe it's the person you choose to show undeserved kindness to in hopes that they will pay it forward. Perhaps, though, it's the person you could have sworn on your life you were going to grow old with and raise a big, beautiful family with. Obviously those goodbyes hurt more than the rest. But what do they teach us about ourselves? About life? About love? Sometimes, I think I have it all figured out. I can easily rattle off a list of things I've learned in the process and what things I know I don't want. But would I have really chosen it this way if it were up to me or is that just me making peace with reality as it is? I'm not sure I'll ever have the answer to that one. Then again, maybe that's the point.
