Realisation can sometimes be tough. Why? Because with realisation usually comes change. And for some reason as human beings we struggle with change.
We fear change in fact. Changing job, changes in your relationship status, moving away from your comfort zone. However, change is one of the best things we can do for ourselves in order to grow.
A big reason people don’t follow their dreams is because of the people we leave behind in our last chapter. We have to remember that sometimes people don’t want to or are not ready to turn over to the next page at the same time as we are.
The truth is, I can’t always be the light in your life. The person who is always there when times get tough. I can’t always be your shoulder to cry on.
It may sound selfish, but it’s tough. Being the norm in someone else’s battle is emotionally draining. I want to be there for you, but there’s only so many times I can listen to the same problem, when I know that you won’t change it.
When you spend so much time listening to someone else’s problems they slowly become your issues, and they eat away at your happiness.
I want to be your rock, I want to be your shoulder to cry on, but I also want to live the happiest life I can. I can’t always be the person who makes you happy when skies are grey.
It may seem hard to leave these people behind, but it is time to live your life and find your happiness!
