Be Strong and Courageous . . .

When people walk away from your life without saying “goodbye” or even giving the “reason” to leave is not a good feeling; it hurts deeply.

You can spend days having the feeling of being left in the dark. But, stop banging your head on the wall, and biting your fingernails. Learn to be strong and courageous to bringΒ yourself together and keep moving!

As we all know, life does not stop, it does not slow down for anyone.

You do the same. You have a rich life ahead of you.

Be strong. Be courageous and let them go on.

Here’s a sad truth,Β not everyone will come and stay in your life.

  1. Great post and loved it. The people we meet, all have different purposes. Some teach us lessons and some inspire us, while yet other if we get lucky stay in our hearts forever. Everything happens for a reason.

      1. Yes and not to be taken too serious. Life can be serious enough and I just wrote a post about keeping the balance to the seriousness of our adult life’s. It’s called childhood abandon. I’m sure you could relate and maybe check it when you some free time. It seems fitting in relation to this. Have a great night.

  2. Yes, people come into and may leave our lives. There are about half dozen friends that have just seemed to evaporate and I don’t know how or why. Never locate them as some I knew by first name only or by nickname.

    1. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts Carl. It means a lot. You are 100% right. At times, when people come in our lives to teach us something about life itself or about ourselves. Life is very interesting when you think about it.


  3. And to look at this from another perspective…. perhaps those who are no longer in your life, are wondering what ever happened to you? Why are you no longer in their life.

  4. Loved your post so much!!!
    Had friends and family who left us about 3 years ago and moved on on bad terms. It was the was the most gut renching moment ever and the thing with that is we can spend all our lives blaming ourselves for them leaving or just cherish the moments we had with them and move on with our own lives and be happy.
    Never let the guilt of someone else’s actions hold you down!
    Learns from your and their mistakes Bd move onπŸ’œ

    1. Thank you!!!! Yes! I love this “never let the guilt of someone else’s actions hold you down” and you are so right! Life is constantly in flux! It’s moving. So, why should you stop moving because of someone who has decided to depart from your life! I’m glad that you moved on in life!


    1. Yes! Yess! Sharon! Sometimes you come to a point where enough is enough and you can sense a person does not want to be around you, and you know what, that is a good thing that they leave. I always say this, you don’t need a bunch of people lingering around you, because then, you will be too heavy to travel to where you want to do. In order words, you become stuck!

  5. I think to not everyone deserves to stay in your life. And that’s something I wish more people would realize. So much pain is caused when when we think we aren’t good enough and yet so many times the people who feel less-than are so much more than the people who for whatever reason walk away or fail to keep up with you.

    Ohhh my god …. Truthfully I wanted to tell that…
    Myself Sameer Srivastava age 29yrs I wanted to describe that i found nothing till now from the society wherever I complied with them so much my mean to say such as whenever I lived up at my home always found peoples ignores me again when I tried myself in the job …. Also same and I am a good interpreter I seen manner times I am having photosphere’s tought.
    But at the same time I am finding whatever I am that’s becoming true..
    So for now I am also considering that somehow whichever whatever happening just let it go….

    Along with little precautions of that whatever you are thinking for your betterment it could be possible another persons also trying to get it same from you passion emotions and affection…

    At the we are we are
