I think "believing in the process" is one of the hardest things to deal with. There have been people that came into my life and made me feel an incredible bliss, only for it to inevitably end... friends that move away and lose touch or lovers that lose their passion. Their vacancy at times would test me. "How can I ever replace them?" I would think. But finally I've noticed a pattern. Fighting to keep these people in my life has only ever held me back, and once I let go of that burden, I was able to move on to greater personal success in my life. I'm basically just reminding myself that there are only two directions to move from here. Forward and up. Who can relate?
