Many things are temporary ---- toys, pencil markings… but sometimes it will also be people who are temporary in our lives. Sometimes it might feel like a slap on the wrist, and sometimes itʻll feel like falling into spiral of self doubt, anxiety, despondency, and anything else negative. The hardest part about it all is accepting that people will not always stay in our lives. Itʻs also challenging, because sometimes we have no idea who to turn to, what to say, what move to make next, mostly due to the fact that at this age, we havenʻt experienced this before. The worst when certain people leave, is feeling alone. Not knowing what to do, so you donʻt do anything, making it even harder to get through this chapter. Sometimes it feels like being blocked by a transparent wall. Not being able to connect with anything, and
Almost anything and everything can be contradicted, including this situation. Even though it might hurt, there will always be good in the bad. The best part about being a teenager, is being able to accept these situations, and being able to really find ourselves from it. Finding out what makes us feel vulnerable, find out the kind of people we want to surround ourselves with. Although people may leave in our lives, this gives us an opportunity to really find out how to be independent, and how to deal with problems on our own. The way we react to a situation will always tell us a lot about ourselves. Just having that chance to just connect with ourselves, is good practice, especially because weʻll be going into adulthood soon.
The truth is, everyone will come and go. Maybe for a short time, or maybe for a long time… But the most important thing would be to think of what the situation does for us instead of to us. With this mentality, we will always get to turn a negative experience into a learning one, and use our past knowledge and apply it for future reference.
