Everyday, you meet thousands of people. Some of them could be a part of your life in the future. Some of them are just one of those nameless faces you wouldn’t have the chance to know personally. And some of them are just background characters in your own story. Each of them has their own problems. Each of them has their own place in this world. Just like you, they’re struggling to survive, trying to live the life given to them.
Do you ever wonder how many people that have pas through your life since you were just a little kid? They just come and go. Some of them left their footprints in your life, some did not leave their marks. Some of them decided to stay, while some left you behind. Some of them became your friends, some did not cross the line. Some of them became special, some of them listed their names on the lists of people you secretly hate. You learned a lot from them. And those lessons you get from those life experiences changed you in many ways. It molded you to what you are now.
And while you travel back in time and think those faces you met in the past, on those times when you were just an innocent, young kid playing on your school playground to those times when you were a naive teenager wandering the school campus searching for your crush, you can’t help but ask yourself “where are they now?” There’s too many of them. You may not remember the names of those people you shared a lot of things with, you may not recognize their faces if you see them now, you still want to thank them for giving you some memories to remember.
And you could only be thankful to those people who stayed with you as the wheel of time rotates. Those people who make you feel that having friends in this world is the most amazing accomplishment you can ever have. Some people may walk out of your life, but the next day, new faces will enter. Some people leave surprisingly, and some people step in unexpectedly. It’s just a cycle.
