The past few years I’ve learnt that people will come and go from your life, and there isn’t anything that one can do about it. Building a long lasting relation with anyone isn’t as easy as it might seem. But sometimes by opening up, by being authentic and by willing to invest in the relationship, you will find a few people who you need and who will need you as well. They make you feel a part of something bigger even if you’re used to flying solo. You will realize that having a few people to back you up every now and then isn’t too bad. These people will be your lifelines and you will be one of theirs as well.
