The Day You Stop

One day, you will die.

You will stop and the world will carry on. Lovers will love. Others will shop, laugh and cry. Sometimes alone. Sometimes together. The radio will keep playing.

But you will be gone.

Only the love you gave, the souls you touched and the people you changed, will remain.

They will carry on for you. They will pick up where you left off.

There is nothing to be sad about here.

I've always enjoyed this quote.

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. - Henry Brooks Adams.

I burst out crying after I read this.

A friend of mine made a really horrible mistake, and her relationship with a few of our other friends is in major jeopardy.

It really is all her fault, they have every right to be mad at all, I should just sit on the fence and give them moral support.

But I just can't. I keep worrying over her, and what will happen after this, and if they're just going to throw away the years of friendship they had with her and never look at her in the same light again, just because she was the bad guy for just one moment.

And then I read this, and now I can't stop crying because all I can do right now is hope that, in the end, what will be remembered is the experiences we've been through, and that we can all move on from this while looking up at the sky.

I shouldn't be as freaked out about this as I am, and I'm really trying to be the pillar that they can lean on during this.

Thank you for making me stable so I can do just that.

Fights like these are part of life and every group of friends has them occasionally. My friends and I have had quite a few but after a week or a month, we get over it and carry on being friends.

I know this must seem really big for you right now. It doesn't have to be. Give it time and things will sort themselves out.

I promise.

Thank you so much. After I slept on it, I was really able to think things through and seeing this comment when I woke up really brightened up my day.

I'll do what I can to be there for all of them, and hopefully this will pass over.

You're really a kind person, love.

It's what I'm here for :)

Amazing. It's things like these that we sometimes forget.

But still it is a very humbling thought to know that it will move on. For once I wish, it stops for me as I always stop for it. For once I wish, it moves for me, like I move with it.
