Sometimes seemingly bad things happen in life. People fade from our lives who we thought would be there forever. Bonds are broken. Faith is lost. Something within us shatters and the pieces of own self portraits fall to little pieces on the floor. Broken ourselves we don't even know how to start to put the pieces back together, let alone what to glue them with.
This might seem negative. But, surprisingly this is where one chapter ends in life, and another one starts. Even though it's often fraught with terror and panic, this is where we exit the known, and cross over into the unknown. This is where we get the chance to shed our past like a snake sheds it skin, and start anew. This is the fresh breath of rest, even though so many of us try so hard to reject it.
It's change. It's coming. It's been here before. You can choose to change with it, or you can fruitlessly rebel. It's going to happen, it's going to toss us like waves toss driftwood.
After I picked up some of the fallen pieces of myself, I noticed life was better. For all the thrashing I did to try to stop all this change, it ended up that the change was mostly in me. I was finally happy... :D
