"Think about the person you were, the person you are, and the person you will become. These three people, all versions of your identity at different periods, are different from one another, right?
Now think about the people who have abandoned you, the people you just met, and the people you will meet. These are people who cherished, cherish, and will cherish you for who you are at different periods of your life.
Lastly, think of the people who were there in your past, prevalent in your present, and promised to be there in your future. The people who stuck by when you were changing, to now, when you are changing. The people who loves you for who you are, even if you are and will be an entirely different person from who you were in the past.
You must forever cherish these people, because they see something deep within you that can not be phased by time. They saw something in you that never changed through all the different persons you became. These people are one of the few true things you’ll gather in your life.”
