"You’re going to mingle with a lot of people in your lifetime. You’re going to have first kisses you feel all the way down to your toes and think “Oh my gosh, I love him,” but really… you loved the kiss. You’re going to meet a friend you think you will know forever, but then something will change and you two will go your separate ways. You’re going to explore different parts of your life with different people who aren’t in it for the long haul, and that isn’t a bad thing. Life is a series of stories, and the way our stories intersect is remarkable. Sometimes people are in our lives for the whole story. Sometimes they are just a short chapter or two. It takes a brave person to know when that chapter is over, and then to turn the page. Be brave. Embrace your goodbyes, because every “goodbye” you receive in life sets you up for an even better “hello.”"
"change happens to everyone as they grow up… you find out who you are and what you want, then you realize that some people you’ve known forever don’t see the same things you do. you keep the wonderful memories but find yourself moving on… the future is unclear, and sometimes that’s a scary thing, but as long as you’re able to wake up every day and look in the mirror and be truly happy with the person you see, then forget about the change, the future, and the judgement and just be you."
