This is the one I’ve been waiting for. This quote is my favourite quote, and it helped me through a really hard time last year.
It is one of the truest things I have ever heard in my life, and I am sure that it will speak to a great many people, and the fact that it comes from the TV Show “The Flash” just shows the impact that TV can have on your life.
“One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they’ll last forever, and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.” – Barry Allen
Last year I met someone who became my best friend in this world, we would talk every day, and she knew me better than anyone else ever had.
There were no secrets between us and I love her with all my heart, that’s how close we were. My best friend saved my life.
But unfortunately life gets in the way and due to circumstances beyond our control we had to stop talking, and I miss her every day.
We knew each other for a short time but became closer than I ever thought possible.
When we stopped talking it hurt, and that pain is something I still live with to this day, it has lessened over time, but it will never entirely go away. There are times that I wish it had ended badly between us at least then I could use anger to mask the pain, but it didn’t. I took the step back to let my friend move on with life and to be happy. About three or four weeks after the last time we spoke I came across this quote and it fit in place in my heart and has stayed there ever since.
It became my personal mantra; you don’t lose someone really as long as they have a place in your heart. My friend is the best person I know, and I miss her daily, but life moves on, and I will honour her the only way I know how. I am naming my daughter after her.
This quote is the big one, this is the one that means the most to me. We lose people throughout out lives, people come, and people go, they leave footprints on your heart, and that’s where you will always keep them and as long as you do they never truly leave you.
The greatest pain there is to lose your best friend.
I am fortunate enough, to have other friends who helped me move passed this and get on with life. I will do everything in my power to see that they never have to go through the pain that I have, and I hope never to experience it again. But as we all know life doesn’t work that way.
I want to throw in a little extra quote here, which I feel syncs up nicely with the one above. It is from the song “Run” by Snow Patrol
“Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear”
This fits perfectly with what I have said as long as you remember those that you have lost, then they never truly leave you and are always with you in your heart.
My nominations for today are:
I’m sure you will all do great and move us all.
