People are temporary. I don’t have any if’s, and’s or but’s about it. Everyone in your life is temporary, even the one’s you think are forever. You never know what tomorrow holds. You can be here today and gone tomorrow. Embrace every moment because you never know when someone will be gone. I want to be angry and tell you to never let anyone close enough to hurt you. Except the only thing about that is if you never let anyone in close then you will never know what it feels like for someone to truly love you for you. You will never experience intimate moments with someone or have any memories really worth anything to you because you never let anyone close enough to mean anything to you. Seasons change and with those seasons people pass as well. I feel completely torn and broken and devastated because I feel like anyone I let in either leaves or dies and I’m at a loss. I know that the pain I feel because of their absence is nothing compared to the emptiness I would feel without their love. At least I have memories and experiences, I have something of worth because of the people who have came and gone. Don’t allow fear of abandonment over power the need to be loved. Don’t close yourself up to everyone just because you have been disappointed in the past . Trust that God is aligning the right people around you, not to hurt you, but to protect you. Try not to shut down or harden your heart because at the end of the day you’re only doing damage to yourself. Maybe you suffered a loss and don’t know how to deal with it? Just know God will never take anything away without giving you something in return, you may feel empty, but He won’t leave you empty.
1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
