There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the peoplewho treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.” – José N. Harris, (Mi Vida)

We all encounter out fair share of drama. One of the effects of my own search for self-reliance and happiness was the loss of a few friends. We simply grew apart and went down separate paths. Sometimes burned bridges can’t be mended and that’s the reality of living our own lives and growing up. All we can do is appreciate that we once shared a phase in our lives – appreciate the influence they’ve had on who we were in the present. Paraphrasing Elizabeth Foley, with the drama and frustration they might come with, in times like these our eyes are also opened to the presence of a select few true friends who we can grow separately from without growing apart.
