5 Things That End Friendships, And Why That Just Might Be Okay

From Today’s Quotes

Not all people would be able to understand that Friendship also works this way.. Change is constant, we don’t get to stay with each other forever. Just as what the fifth statement says, sometimes priorities shift and things replace what used to be your time together. But it doesn’t mean that you care less for that person (just because you don’t get to spend a lot of time anymore). Sometimes, we just have to accept that things are changing. And the best thing to do is to move on and keep moving forward..

Thought Catalog

We don’t know how to phase people in and out of our lives without getting attached. We just don’t. Granted, sometimes we have life-long friends who grow and change as we do, but that’s often not the case. Circumstances change. We change. And we’re not supposed to spend forever with people who don’t help us to enjoy life or teach us things about the world or ourselves or who generally don’t serve a purpose other than to frustrate us. Sometimes it’s just better to acknowledge that a friendship has run it’s course and that not every friendship, much like relationships in general, is meant to be a life-long thing. Accepting that is much better than trying to hold onto the pieces that are left. It’s the strain of trying to do so with people who don’t fit us anymore that really does us in. So very often, the circumstances will do…

Unleashed Emotions

-o00o-

It feels like I’m starting to move on. I’m happy, not because the love inside me is fading away but for the fact that I could paint a smile once again. I could once again wake up each morning not thinking of that same person all over again.

Honestly, I would really want to forget you, erase you in my life. Countless times, you’ve been telling me to just forget all those promising conversations we had. I tried but then, I can’t do it, I won’t be able to do it. The memories we had keeps on flashing inside my mind and I don’t know how to overcome it. It’s funny how I oftentimes cry whenever I watch movies. This was the effect from loving you so deeply, I easily got carried away.

I wanted to forget everything about you.. For letting me go, for not loving me anymore, for everything. I had my lapses, I admit and I’m sorry. This is me. I just can’t be the girl that you really wanted. I could be better  but I can’t totally change.

You always say that you have accepted me for what and for who I am. But that’s not what I’ve seen in you. Maybe you do, but not the totality of me.

When I was younger, I told myself that I would not dig for love. Love hurts. I have seen those hurts through my family and friends and I don’t want to feel the same way. I made myself discrete to other people so I won’t be hurt.

Yet, when I met you, my perception on love changed. I have thought of giving love a try. And indeed, I found happiness. Happiness that I have not felt before. Happiness that I have found in your arms. Though it was not the usual relationship we had, you still gave me the new meaning of love.

But then here I am, still mending the heart that you have broken. For now, I’m going to return to that discrete self of mine. Perhaps a few crushes would do. But love? I’ll pass. I was happy without it before, and I’d still be happy without it today. I still have friends with me after all.

Things have been really different now. You have your life and I’m going to move on. So let me go. Cut the invisible thread that you’ve put on me. I’ll be fine, don’t worry. I think this would be good for the both of us.

Then again, there are things that would remain the same..

One..
We’d still be the best of friends. You can still count on me..

Two..
You were my first, and i hope you would still be my last..
I’d still love you..
forever..

Thanks for the memories..
I’m glad I’ve shared it with you..

A Dollar and Some Ambition

I was reading an e-book on motivational quotes and there was this short article included at the last part of the book. It was all about choices in life, what to do, and the like. Well, I just want to share it to everybody who wanted some motivation in life. But you know, according to the e-book the best motivation is SELF motivation. And so, this is just an additional motivation for you.. More to come.. ^^,

By Jim Rohn

Each of us has two distinct choices to make about what we will do with our lives. The first choice we can make is to be less than we have the capacity to be. To earn less. To have less. To read less and think less. To try less and discipline ourselves less. These are the choices that lead to an empty life. These are the choices that, once made, lead to a life of constant apprehension instead of a life of wondrous anticipation.

And the second choice? To do it all! To become all that we can possibly be. To read every book that we possibly can. To earn as much as we possibly can. To give and share as much as we possibly can. All of us have the choice. To do or not to do. To be or not to be. To be all or to be less to be nothing at all.

Like the tree, it would be a worthy challenge for us all to stretch upward and outward to the full measure of our capabilities. Why not do all that we can, every moment that we can, the best that we can, for as long as we can?

Our ultimate life objective should be to create as much as our talent and ability and desire will permit. To settle for doing less than we could do is to fail in this worthiest undertakings.

Results are the best measurement of human progress. Not conversation. Not explanation. Not justification. Results! And if our results are less than our potential suggests that they should be, then we must strive to become more today than we were the day before. The greatest rewards are always reserved for those who bring great value to themselves and the world around them as a result of who and what they have become.
