Recently I got in contact with an old friend. We had a good ole counseling session about life, significant others, and how to stay focused. Or maybe more so, that you must stay focused in a very broad way.
What I mean by that is that, we find someone that we think is great and we get to know them, we get in deep and all of a sudden the bigger picture is them and then they start asking us to change for them. In our mind and in our site we feel like if we lose them, we lose our life, we lose ourselves, and all that we have built and cared about. We lose site of the bigger picture of life; friends, family, experiences and the biggest thing of all, we lose site of who we are. We become who they want us to be instead of being who we want to be.
We forget that this is a chapter in a book, maybe it will last longer but many times its a chapter that we focus on so much it feels like the book and when it ends its like a novel with the end ripped out. We can’t remember where we were or what to do next.
Be who you are, don’t lose who you are.
