Some live their lives thinking they have to find their distance. Distance between their friends, their family, the people they love. They get scared. Scared that if they get too close, they’ll be overwhelmed, too far and they’ll be abandoned. What I’ve come to realize is that distance isn’t so bad. It’s not something we should be afraid of. It’s hard. I know. To live with so many uncertainties. To live unafraid of the things that we cannot control. But that’s life. We can’t always be in control. So the only thing we can do, is live it.
