It is now October! Can you believe it?
For me, October brings a change, a change in weather, the leaves (well not for Florida), a change in a bird’s migration path, and even a change in relationships (whether romantically or friendly).
I came across a song the other day and listened carefully to the lyrics, and they stuck with me. In PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Come and See Me” song, one of the lines reads: “Things change, people change, feelings change too.” With October being the month full of changes for me, I thought it fit well. The song had me thinking about all of the changes relationships go through.
The people we thought were going to be there forever aren’t, and people we never thought we would be speaking to are now some of our closest friends. It’s crazy how life plays out for us sometimes.
Life is full of changes, especially with the people we associate with. People come and go, some stay, some don’t, and that’s okay!

Every person we come across plays a role in our life even if it’s only seasonal. Some relationships and or friendships will test us beyond our limit, while others may take advantage of us. Some relationships will make us feel nothing but love, yet they will also teach us some of our most challenging lessons. Either way, we cross paths with people in our life for a purpose.
If someone leaves your life, let them. I know I can speak for myself; when a person leaves your life, it is NOT easy to accept. One day someone is your best friend, then suddenly, life happens, you both change, and the next thing you know, you have each other blocked from life. It hurts but at the end of the day, IT WILL BE OKAY!
The way I’ve come to see it, if that person came into your life and brought any kind of positivity but the relationship changed, just be thankful your paths crossed when they did. Cherish the memories made and laughs shared but understand the relationship changed for a reason.
For those relationships that never seem to change, or come unexpectedly, hold onto them tightly, as they have been brought into your life (or haven’t left) for a reason. The best kind of relationship is one that brings sunshine even on your darkest days.
There will always be a reason why relationships or friendships end just as there is a reason why new ones begin. So for now, make the most of them before if all changes once again!
Let’s welcome October and all the changes it may bring!
And I leave you with a quote from Marilyn Monroe that reads:
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
