I’ve thought about this a lot. As a 23 year-old who just graduated from college, I’ve met a lot of people over the last 5 years or so. From people who were my best friends in high school to people I went to college with, many have come and gone.
I can get myself down a rabbit hole then and wonder…am I the one doing the coming and going? Is it my fault that I seem to have relationships that were very close at one time and now…aren’t?
But really, I think that’s just life. People come and go. We need to foster community with and learn from those who are with us right now. Relationships are beautiful, and they are to be cherished.
Thanks for writing this, Jon. I really resonated with it.
