Here’s something they don’t teach you in high school-life is too short to waste it on trying to make things work. Stop trying to fit into a pair of jeans you bought five years ago-give them to charity. Stop trying to make yourself listen to classical music-Mozart is not just your thing.
Stop trying to like celery, no one likes it. It’s all a huge grown-up conspiracy. And most importantly, for the love of God, stop trying to stick around hoping people will ‘become’. He will not become kinder to you, she will not become warmer. Stop trying to change people. Either accept them and love them for who they are or just let go and say your goodbyes.
There just isn’t time enough.
Be you no matter what, there just isn’t enough time in life to accommodate someone else’s shenanigans.
