To the Ones I've Lost Along the Way...


Not all relationships are meant to last a lifetime. Whether it is a boyfriend, girlfriend, friend or family member sometimes these relationships come to an end and that’s ok. 

At least that’s what I’ve recently learned. It’s always a tough pill to swallow when you come to the realization that a friendship has ended, but (I mean this in the nicest way) that’s life.

More specifically... so many friends will come and go, but it’s what you learn about yourself through the process that actually matters. It definitely hurts to see them go and to have many unanswered questions. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of uncertainty. I still have unanswered questions. However, things happen for a reason and I truly believe that.

If you’ve never experienced the expiration of any type of relationship, consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Although, I believe that there’s actually a positive to when significant people in your life take an exit for good.

You now have the opportunity to reinvent what it is that you look for and how you want to be treated and vice versa. You almost grow a new appreciation for authentic people in your life once you weed out a few of the unpleasant ones.

Through my own personal experiences, I’ve come to understand the value of authentic friendships. The power and influence they can have on you and your life are SO refreshing. I cannot express enough how important it is to surround yourself with worthy and authentic people.

So to the ones I’ve lost along the way… to you, I say thank you. Thank you for teaching me the value of true friendships and to know my own self-worth.

  1. Hi Ashley! I absolutely can relate to this. When a relationship ends, yes it does hurt for some time, but through my experience, it only made me an even stronger person than I already was. You tend to grow even more, evaluate your life, and get to know yourself on a more personal level. You may lose that particular individual, but in return, you learn more about yourself and realize that it's not about quantity, but about quality.Meg xo
