Levi's jean jacket, Fashion to figure romper

Someone once told me to view my life as a train with many exciting destinations. Along the way, it will stop to pick up new passengers but not every passenger will make it to the final destination. Returning to Tampa was nostalgic for me, but it made me realize that many passengers that were once on my train, weren’t.

I begin to struggle with guilt because I felt myself growing, pursuing my dreams, and wanting more. And as I grew, my circle changed. It was an uncomfortable place; feeling the distance with the people that I was once close to. But, it is a necessary place.

At some point, you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening. Sometimes growing up means growing apart. But, true friends can grow separately without growing apart. I don’t have the energy or desire for any superficial relationships whether they are platonic or romantic. Point blank. End of discussion.
