There is always something that I should remember for the rest of my life.
You could be mad as a mad dog at the way things went.
you can swear and curse the fates,
but when it comes to the end,
you have to let go.
For what it's worth, it's never too late, or in my case, too early, to be whoever you want to be.
There's no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same.
There's no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you're proud of.
If you find that you are not,
I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
You never know what's coming for you！
We're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?
What are you thinking?
I was thinking how nothing lasts.
And what a shame that is.
Some things last.
