"In order to maintain one must gauge the terrain. For life consists of multiple layers and planes, which further explains that if one wants to gain they mustn’t be resistant to change. Those who change will sustain, those who don’t, won't."
It's inevitable that people, feelings, and relationships will change. If you ignore that fact, you will find out that you are the only person in your circles who hasn’t changed. You can resist change all you want, but the more you resist it, the more you realize you are hurting and holding back yourself and others. By default, distance will be created between you and others because you are moving at two different growth rates. Change is uncomfortable, but you must embrace the growing pains knowing that they are necessary in making you better.
