So I knew I wanted to write tonight, but I didn’t know what to write about. I spent a while thinking and thinking but I came up with nothing. I was just about to lay down to go to bed when I checked facebook on my iPod and saw someone’s status. It read: “everyone eventually leaves.” This immediately sparked an interesting thought in my head.
Its true if you think about it. Sadly, even if it’s family who will be in your life for a long time, they do eventually have to die, just like everyone. A depressing thought, I know, but it’s reality.
On a less depressing thought, think about friends. Some stay in your life for a long time, and you become close to them, but they eventually move on to other people and fade away. Rarely do friendships last from the young, school ages, all the way till the nursing home years. It’s possible though.
On the other hand, you have those friends who come in and out of your life, kind of like there playing a big game of musical chairs with you. Sometimes this can be an unintentional thing, and sometimes they don’t always want to be in your life for whatever reason. Sometimes you just loose touch with people over time. It’s silly, in my opinion thought. Silly that life, and the people you have in it, are like a big game of musical chairs.
I guess if you believe the old saying “everything happens for a reason” the musical chairs theory kind of makes sense. Some people come in for a reason, hang around for a while, show their reason for being around, and go for a reason. Some stay for the long haul, which could possibly be the reason they’re in your life in the first place. Seem’s to explain it pretty well.
I guess it’s true. In the end we do all end up alone. BUT! That doesnt mean that you have to spend your life being alone. Surround yourself with people who will stick around for the long haul, and not play musical chairs with your life.
