Those who leave 

I read somewhere once that the people who leave don’t matter as much as the ones who stay 

And I feel it necessary to argue with this 

The people who leave, they are the ones that have created the acknowledgement of the ones who have not 

They are the ones that create the pain or emptiness or bitterness toward any and all things beautiful and it is the ones who stay that make us see the beauty in this life again 

The ones who leave become the foundation of our strength because we can not attract a true tribe through weakness 

The ones who leave are the heavy foot on the pedal that gets us to start going, with force, toward all we are truly being called to 

The ones who leave remind us that even our best days see their end and the people who stay are the magic in each sunrise we are able to still witness because we haven’t given up yet 

The souls who leave us, never actually leave us

We are all eternally connected, we are all one operating as different parts of a larger source of energy that most of us are too fearful to try and understand 

But the truth in the matter is 

Even when you feel empty because someone has left you, know that this is almost, always a siren for the soul to be awakened in some small way 

Create lessons out of let downs 

Make dreams out of nightmares 

Let the ones who leave, go 

Allow the ones who stay

To see you grow and evolve 

Become the reason people begin to believe 

In loving those who have left

For they are the fire

In our soul 

That ignites by letting go

They are the reason

We transform
