Thank for openly sharing your feelings. Not many have the guts to express themselves the way you do which makes me appreciate coming across your article.
Your beautiful, true and honest words triggered the thought of this quote up from my memory
“It’s unbelievable how fast people can change. One day, you mean everything. The next day, you dont exist anymore.”
I think people who have a full meaningful life like yours go through what you went through which is a mix of very valuable memories regardless of how good or bad.
One day all that would be worth is the memories you created and collected along your journey.
That little box of yours is your most precious thing in life; I would suggest you keep filing it with all the memories you pick up along the way.
It defines who and what you are, it’s simply your foundation and source of meaning and purpose.
At the end of the day, all you need is Health and Love.
Thank you for writing a great piece.
