To Seek New Possibilities

I didn’t realize how lonely it is to live by yourself until a few days ago. I was stuck thinking about the comforts of living at home, surrounded by friends and family and familiar things. I wondered how it would be leaving your comfort zone. I don’t know how long it would take me to adapt to new things if I were away.

My cousin advised me to move away for college to lead my own life and discover myself. Sometimes I feel bad leaving my family because I won’t be around to help them. My parents are aging and my younger brother will be entering high school-moving onto one of the next biggest steps in his life. I want to be there by his side to give him advice and guidance but a part of me feels certain that he will grow up and find his own way, just like I did.

Perhaps it’s best that I put myself first in this decision. That what I’m doing is purely for myself. My main goal is to find my path, be happy, and to thrive given whatever circumstance.

You were left puzzled and shocked when the people closest to you, the ones who you trusted and cared for walked the door one day. They gave you countless reasons to justify their actions but at the end of the day, you knew it was because they simply stopped caring.

It’s nearly impossible to have control over their actions and how they feel but when you gain the clearest mind and the kindest heart, what they do to you won’t matter anymore. You no longer hold it within you and you continue leaving room in your heart for forgiveness and acceptance.
