Half of your life is building relationships. Maybe it is new connections, or perhaps it is making the old ones stronger.
The other half of your life is saying goodbye to old relationships. Our connections change for various reasons. Some people move, other people change, and people pass away.
Building new friendships can be difficult. It takes time and effort, and who knows when those people will tell us goodbye. Sometimes, we think it is far easier to withdraw and not risk headaches or hurt.
Despite the challenge, keep building relationships. The good will far outweigh the bad. Other people need you, and you need other people.
Some Christians, like me, need to be told this daily as a reminder. Maybe you need to hear it too.
