Trying to force something that won't fit. Some say it's like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. But what if that square peg does everything right? That square peg is the most perfect peg ever created. This still doesn't change the composition of the peg and make it any easier to fit. Sometimes we have to realize we can't force something that we would ending up having to cut our corners off to fit into. I personally like some edge.
Only until we separate ourselves from people we love for a bit do we truly understand the role they play in our lives. They could be your rock, the best reason you laugh, the one who you can talk to, a source of pure joy, or if you're lucky, all four. But we don't truly see this until we can take a step back and not see them on a regular basis. Sure we can enjoy them while we are with them and love their company, but sometimes we just need some space to help revel all they truly mean to us.
I know many have written on life and death and how temporary it can be. Which is all true but its more than that. It's the shocking revelation that everyone has, at some point, that someone you always thought would be there for you is suddenly not. It never really crossed your mind that someday they wouldn't be, and if it did you probably didn't think of the effects it would have on you. When death is so sudden it shatters everything you once thought about life. It truly does make you appreciate every amazing moment and every heartbreak, because you're alive to feel them. The hardest thing really is getting over the fact that earlier that day they were healthy and fine. Then something happens and they aren't anymore. They were healthy until they weren't and that what makes life so fragile, not knowing when they aren't going to be.

"She was a smart girl and till she fell in love"- Sex and The City. Does love literally make one lose all previous inhibitions? Apparently along with those inhibitions the brain goes as well. Why does it seem that when we start to fall for someone we begin to fall farther from ourselves? Or at least from the outside to others it seems this way. As I am sure you have heard the phrase "love is blind", well blind it is and you're the one that can't see. But why? Why does falling for someone make us lose who we previously were? Especially if they are supposed to bring out the best in us. But what if they are? What if this mindless-inhibition-lost-person is who we really are, we just haven't met us yet?
Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go
