With time I have learned that it is impossible to want to keep chasing memories. To want to relive them. Inevitably, things happen, people change, paths diverge, you lose touch. However, I have also learned that sometimes it’s enough to share but a moment. To be part of a tight friend group for a while. To live in a country and love it, even if it’s only for a brief period in time. To share a joke or a random conversation at the bus stop. Lately I’ve come to accept that it’s okay. It’s okay to make more memories with the same people, but it’s also okay to make other memories with new people and keep the old ones just as a gift to yourself. Either way I will forever, wherever life takes me, treasure the fact that our paths crossed at one point and I would hereby like to say: thanks for the memories.
