It’s been 3 months since my birthday. Normally, I don’t celebrate it.
Not because I hate getting older. If that is the case, I should love it. (By being closer to my inevitable death)
The main reason would be my laziness and my tendency towards disappointment. Inviting people and them saying that they don’t have time anyway? Nah, just don’t send out invitations so nobody can decline them f(ಠ‿↼)z
But this year it was different. A friend of mine, I just met on the internet, offered her companionship and visited me. We didn’t make anything special, but I enjoyed the time and hope, she did as well.
Compared to the time I bought some donuts and ate them all by myself on a lonely bench, a major improvement.

Your childhood friend, you haven’t seen for years? Maybe he/she is a total douche now. Many people you meet, might only be here for a part of your lifetime and that’s okay. We all change, sometimes more sometimes less and so do our views and preferences. There is nothing wrong with that. Life is versatile. It’s important to let people go when you’re not getting along with each other, even if you have spent much time together. You should not maintain a relationship, for the sake of those memories, if it’s gone bad or toxic.
At first, you will encounter sadness. Remembering those times you had together, hope doing this all again. But it will not. And you should let got.
This was one of the harder lessons of life to learn for myself. To be honest, I’m quite the nostalgic person, even more in the past. I find myself looking at old pictures or profiles of people I encountered, and thinking about our conversations. We laugh, we cry and we were angry. I’m grateful for that. All those people I met and the experience I had til now, made me that person I am today.
I am not at the end of my journey, well I could take a shortcut… nah haha. Still, there are many things in life, I want to see and feel. So let’s get out (or stay inside) and do the things, which make us happy.
