Losing relationships is a part of growing

it is important to evaluate relationships and their role in your life.

In reflecting on my experiences and journey through high school the last four years, I realized that I have been able to grow and develop as a person through all of the relationships that I have built, maintained, and, sometimes, have ended.

All relationships change over time, but especially so during these formative years. Friendships can come and go as fast as the changing seasons and it is important to realize that it is a customary experience. By the time that we graduate, we are such different people than when we started as freshmen. We need to realize that sometimes what we need in our lives at certain times does not always line up with the people around you; and because of that, some friendships wax and wane during more tumultuous years. Friendships develop and change through reflection, experience, and conflict.

I have learned that some relationships are meant to come to an end as we learn more about ourselves and learn more about others. I have realized that evaluating your relationships and their role in your life is an important part of your well-being. I have also learned the value of prioritizing your needs and maintaining the friendships that are healthy and fulfilling and letting go of the ones that are not.

As hard as it is to let go of relationships that you had, if they are not adding joy or  positive outlooks on your life it might need to be let go of. I hope that as you navigate high school you soak in all the relationships along the way and use them to better yourself.
