I have recently been holding on to some “hurt feelings” over a friendship that once was super tight but has since dwindled considerably. My frustrations were directed toward him but then I realized maybe it wasn’t his fault, it was possibly mine. I also remembered that many things in life do not last forever, and they don’t have to.
There are a crap load of things that are moments, drops in the bucket; in which serve a purpose and then disappear. I think this scares us as humans but if we slow down and spend more time thinking about how we are filling those moments versus what has come and gone, we might be better off.
I guess the moral of the story (for me) is, as long as we didn’t do something negative to one another, there should be no hurt feelings. Enjoy the moments for what they were and when they were instead of harboring negative feelings because things haven’t remained the same.
