Change. The only constant.

"When we say things like 'people don't change,' it drives scientists crazy. Because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy, matter, it's always changing... morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting them be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing, despite every scientific indication, that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is a constant. How we experience change, that's up to us. It can feel like death, or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment, we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again."

-Grey's Anatomy (yeah yeah. I'm a girl, hush.)

I think this is something everybody probably needs to be reminded of. Its hard to loosen your grip. It's hard to leave behind a part of your life you loved. Whether its a person, a phase, a place, or a perfect constellation of factors. Its hard to accept that some things weren't meant to be always. They were just for right now. And right now is over. Its painful. But there may be something great that never would get a chance, if the other had always been.
Deep breath.
