Understand that things change. Some friendships drift apart, others develop to have deeper meaning. Kids grow up and no longer want to hold your hand, and then someday turn into people you want to have a different kind of relationship with. People you used to take care of end up taking care of you. Things change. That is a constant in life. We don’t always get to decide what kind of change comes, or the timing of the change, and sometimes we do. The change may seem unbearable at the time it happens, or it may seem like it is something we have been waiting for forever. Or it may be something in between. Just remember that it is inevitable, and that, “this too shall pass.” Whether you perceive it as good or bad, it will likely also change. To paraphrase a common sentiment: change happens.
