I think everyone has heard this song now, it’s everywhere. It’s catchy but the reason I think it’s so popular is the story it tells. It’s a timeless break-up song. We’ve all been there and we all know what it feels like. It doesn’t have to just be a partner, it could be a friend or family member – someone you were close to but are now out of your life and it feels weird knowing what a big part they used to be of your life but now they’ve gone. And now they are just someone that you used to know.
Life is made up of meetings and partings, that is the way of it
That quote if you didn’t know is from The Muppet Christmas Carol. Yes, The Muppets are geniuses 🙂 Well, it could actually be a direct Dickens quote but admission time, I’ve never read the book. Regardless, it always struck me as a pretty good insight into life and love. It would be nice if some people stayed forever but sometimes it’s a good thing that not everyone does. Learning to move on and let go of the past has been a tough lesson for me to grasp. I over analyse things, I wish I could things over again but we all have to say goodbye sometimes. Sometimes it’s good to look back but not if it holds you back.
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime
This is such a true saying. When I think about who many people I’ve met in my life and then the ones that have stuck around, I wonder how different things would be if they were still in my life. But I like to think that there’s a reason why some people come and go and others stay fixed. I have learnt things from these people – good or bad and I’ve made mistakes with them – making me stronger, wiser and the person I am today.
As I grow up, I realise more and more that you can’t change things, all you can do is hope to do things right in the future. Even if you can’t see it at the time, life does have a way of working out.
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Part of me believing it was always something that I’d done
But I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You can’t rewrite your history even if you want to. Probably it wouldn’t work out even if you did. You think it was your fault but it wasn’t. Not every love lasts. And most of the time it was right that it didn’t.
But one love you can make sure lasts is the love you give yourself and the love you let yourself deserve. Because you are the constant in your life.
Make sure that you are somebody you want to know.
