Growth is painful. Change is hard. And there are days when you wish it would just stop. Wouldn’t it be great to just know? To feel like you’ve finally figured it all out? To just be done? It’s the hardest and most wonderful thing about being alive, that no matter how much you learn, grow or change, you’re never done.
—  Erica Strange, Being Erica ~ 2x01 (Being Dr.Tom)
friendships like everything else are not immune to change, the question is how do you stay together when your lives are pulling you apart. When life pulls you apart you have to work to stay together, by putting yourselves in each others shoes, by reminding each other of who you were, and who you are becoming, and remembering that despite all the changes that may come……there are some things that will always stay the same.

            Why are you here?
                                                I’m here because you want me to be here.

Have you ever felt at home in a crowd? Like you were part of something bigger? And you felt this amazing energy that happens when people come together. How despite the superficial differences, you know that deep down, we’re all the same. We have the same secret needs, and the same wild dreams. We walk around thinking our secret pain, our secret joy is so unique, when really we all just want the same things: to be happy, to be safe, to be loved.

Change. Sometimes it sneaks up on you. Sometimes it hits you over the head. And sometimes you turn a corner, only to find you’re different in some small way, and the world doesn’t look quite like it used to. So, where do I go from here? No idea. And for the first time, I feel like that’s a good thing.
—  Erica Strange (Being Erica)
With great power comes great responsibility. Why? Because power is an illusion. The desire to wield that is weakness. An exercise in ego. And the fact is that all you really hold when you hold power is all the rope you need to hang yourself.
