Lately I can’t help but wonder about the people who’ve been in my life. Not necessarily about how they are doing but about the effect they have had on my life. Especially the ones that are no longer part of my life. The people that left my life for all reasons under the horizon.
You know how they say that life keeps repeating a lesson keeps until it is learned, I wonder if it’s like that with people as well. Do we keep running into the same people because there is a lesson we keep failing to learn? Or is it because we simply attract them? Or are there different kind of people teaching us the same lesson in a different way? Are we just not picking up the signs? I can’t help but wonder.
Or is that just the way the story is supposed to go? They come, do what they need to do and when the time is up, they leave. Part of me thinks yes, that is how the story is supposed to go because when they left they took the clouds with them and the sun started to shine. That I applaud them for, but others I wouldn’t mind having back in my life. Would I by creating a place for them in my life be changing my life story? In a negative or positive way?
One can only wonder because knocking on the past her door is a dangerous activity. Sometimes the past knocks on the door of the present. What is one to do then? Especially when it is a person who you wouldn’t mind having back in your life.
Can a person permanently belong to your past knowing people are capable of change if they are determined to or should they permanently stay part of the club of people that left?
