Change

When you lose the person you used to be, do you look forward or backward? Do you strive to hold on to that person? Do you fight to save those thoughts, those feelings, all those things you held to be so important? Or do you embrace who you have become? You feel the old you slip away like a dream, like sand through your fingers. You feel her disappear. And the next time you look in the mirror, you see a face you can't recognise. Do you let her go? Do you let accept the change that crept in so slowly, without you realising it?

Change is the only permanent thing in the world they say. Everyone says. But when the change is unwanted, how do you bring yourself to let go? When you can't trust the new person, how do you find acceptance? Because that is the most important thing, right?

Choices dictate our lives. And questions seem to rule mine.

Maybe it's time to move on. Or is it?

You cannot step into the same river twice. I think it was Heraclitus who said that.

Not only do you change, the waters of the river also change. Just as you cannot live the same moment twice, because even if you remain the same, the world changes, life changes.

My two cents, for what it's worth.

It's worth a lot. Doesn't answer my questions, but does give me something to think about. :)

My favourite line is "Questions seem to dictate mine" Mast it is.
