"Transformation sucks. They can sneak up on you. Things aren’t what they used to be. Your whole world is transformed. You realized, the ground beneath you is shifted. Things are uncertain and there’s no turning back. The world around you is different now - unrecognizable, and there’s nothing you can do about it. You’re stuck. Your future staring you in the face and you’re not sure you like what you see. Like I said, I’m not big into change."
"I’ll see you soon!"
is what we should always say to one another before leaving.
Going back to my high school brings back so many memories. Happy memories. It’s horrible that it takes such a tragic accident to bring us all back together again. It shouldn’t be like that.
Life.. life is too short whether you live up to 100 or til tomorrow. It passes us by way to fast because we’re all so busy growing up to become adults. We forget to appreciate the little things like a text from an old friend, a simple “hi” from someone you know, or just being around with the people you love every day. We get too comfortable with our lives sometimes. Comfortable enough where we take everything for granted.
It’s time to let go of all the grudges. Let go of all the bad history you’ve got between others. Next time, when you see someone you know, say hi along with a friendly hug, and make some small talk. In the end, it’s the little things you do that makes a huge impact on people’s lives. You just don’t know it yet.
Appreciate the people in your life
You’ll never know when they’ll slip away.
Having time apart helps people rethink things. Things that happened, and how things turned out now. It’s amazing to see who’s still left by your side after all the things that happened. Those who stay are the ones who truly cares and loves you.
Tonight made me realize that I’m not facing reality. Well, I am, but at the same time, I’m accepting how it is. Things weren’t suppose to be this way. It wasn’t suppose to happen. Or maybe it was just my luck. How did it get this bad?
Is it wrong to always see the best in people? To give people chances so that one can fix what they broke? If it’s not wrong, then why do people take advantage of it? Why do people take it for granted? I’m tired of that “you won’t know what you got until it’s gone” because it’s so old. I’ve heard it so many times before, but do people actually try and get them back? No. They just watch them walk out and leave; they don’t even give a damn.
Don’t waste time on the people who doesn’t care about you. Instead, spend more time on people who are in front of you because if you keep wasting your time on people who doesn’t give a fuck, you’re taking the people who do for granted.

A little backstory to this clip before you watch it:
Will Smith’s father abandoned him and his mother when he was a child, and when Will was finally getting into show business and making a name for himself, he tried to snake his way back into his life like nothing happened. Will co-wrote this episode, and James Avery (Uncle Phil) said “this scene was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to shoot in my life. Every emotion, every word.. that was Will”
Will was actually supposed to play it off and then walk away, and there was originally an alternate scene that was supposed to happen, but he actually completely cut out what was supposed to be said, and did all of his own dialogue. The hug at the end of this scene is completely genuine, and this was a stepping stone in Will’s career where he started to take on the “do what feels, sounds, and looks right” approach to his acting.
This scene broke my heart when I first watched it as a child and it still kills me today.
