All Things Must Come to And EndNothing lasts forever; all physical objects must one day rot and decay, and all that is incorporeal will one day fade into the next phase of life. No matter how we may cling to the past, it will always find a way to slip through our fingers. While this may seem like common sense, it is much harder to put this mentality to practice than it seems.

The absence of this things has left a massive hole in your existence, one that you have been struggling to fill with any memories and remnant scraps of the past that you can dig up. However, this has left you weak and exhausted, and you’ve finally reached the point that you’re ready to move on. Take this time to let yourself heal from these changes and regain your bearings as your prepare for the next steps into your future.
