I have by my own admission have had a pretty tough year so far, and I have had a little bit of a reality check. I believe that its in your time of need that you find out who the true people are in your life, and this is a massive thing for me. My mum sent me an email the other day that had a paragraph that really stood out to me,
There comes a point in your life when you realize:
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
This couldn't be more true! I am guilty of trying to hold on to the past, maybe because it's scary to move in to the future, especially when the future holds lots of change. I am not very good at dealing with change so when I had my accident and my whole life changed in a split second I found it very hard to deal with! But in every bad situation must come good (or so I keep being told!!), so rather than gripping on to the past for dear life, let it go and move forward, like the quote says there's a reason those things or people are in the past, find the positive and focus on that. Only take the truly important things into your future, your life is too important to live it for other people!
