So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)

I think people rely on other people too much. They’ll be like so & so will make me feel better or they’ll help me out with this one. When really no one needs to make you feel better or help you out with anything. They can give you a shoulder to cry and maybe listen to whatever it is that has you in a rut but other than that no one owes you anything and I hope to always remember this.
