Life is a curious venture.
Everyday you walk into the lives of many, simply by sharing the bus with others and walking past them in a street. Most of the time, nothing happens, life goes on without thought or change. Other times, the important times, you are welcomed to take a seat on their journey with them.
There have been times in life I’ve accepted the seats with open arms but somewhere down the path realised I don’t want to be on the train. I’ve realised from time to time I make mistakes that get me kicked of the train and rightly so usually.
Lately one of the conductors present in my life has let me know how many train tickets I should just throw away.
Friendships are journeys. When you have to constantly ask yourself ‘Do I belong here?’ It gets to point Where someone has to stop holding on. It’s ok to answer ‘No’ sometimes. It may take years to build trust and just seconds to destroy it.
‘There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.’ – Buddha
