“In your life, you meet people. Some you never think about again. Some, you wonder what happened to them. There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you. And then there are some you wish you never had to think about again. But you do.”
I came across this quotation and I started wondering and thinking about those people in my life. I know it’s too early to point at them now because I’m still at the first quarter of my life.
I can still remember the book “Five people you meet in heaven” by Mitch Albom. Since then, I keep ob wondering how and is it truly possible that you’ll meet and see again those people that made an impact in your lives, even for a short lived time?
Well, of course I met a lot of people already. In my 24 years of existence, I already met different kinds of people. Some of them liked me and some just forgot about me.
Let me tell you about some of the few people that I’ve met.
When I was younger, I met persons (sometimes they are older than me) who treated me rudely, they were the wolves in my life, (I’m still currently meeting a few of them until now) at one point they would try to make me look bad, vulgar and embarrassed. I used to go home crying and telling my parents that I’m scared to go out because of those persons. I guess, I became a bit cautious when it comes to trusting people because of them. I don’t see some of them now, but I can still remember those days. In the present, I still have a few of these persons, I cannot please them.
I met a lot of good people too, I met persons who would always believe in my capacities and abilities that made me study even harder. I like seeing these persons and doing my best so that, these persons would compliment me and make me feel better. I started believing in my self because of these persons.
Of course, I met friends, people who I like being with (and hopefully they also like being with me). People that make me laugh to death. They would make fun of me but it doesn’t matter because I would make fun of them in return. I usually spend a lot of my time just staying at their houses, talking about anything and everything about our likes, dislikes and life in general. It can be about giving advices or just having a good time together. Going to different places with them is a major bonus.
Speaking of friends, I met few people who became my friend but lost touch and went from being a friend to being forgotten. I don’t know if they still know me or remember me, but I still remember them. Most of them were from high school and elementary days. Thank goodness for Facebook but even though I see them online, everything is not the same. We are older.
I met people who were just passersby, I met in different places, exchanged numbers and email adds but the relationship didn’t end nowhere. It was just a short convo and bam! They’re out of reach.
The comebacks, these are the persons who I met, for a short time and I almost thought I would never talk to them or see them again but fate forbid, they’re good in comebacks. They rekindle the communication with me and at the most unexpected cases, they would help me in different aspects and issues of my life.
The I like them but I really don’t, these are the persons who I really try to avoid but they are very resistant and they would find ways to be with me, but I really don’t want to. These are the persons that I just don’t see my self for a very long time. And I don’t even know why I’m hesitant about them.
The persons whom I can’t get enough of, these people are the ones who I cannot ever turn down, I always make promises to them and I always try to do that promise. I always want to see them happy because whenever they are happy, I feel jitter bugs all over my body and I just want to sing and dance. I never want to loose them.
I know, there are a lot more of people that I met or will meet in my life. But for now, these are the ones that I can remember and the ones that’s currently having an impact in my life. (Maybe I’ll just update this for future reference) It my be good or bad, short ones or the for a long time. All of them has their reasons and purpose. We’re all intertwined and we’re all lessons for each other.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.
