The problem with loving people deeply is that, at some point, the relationship changes or the person leaves, and you have to adjust to the change.
The problem with loving a place deeply is that, at some point, you will have to leave…and adjust to the change.
The problem with loving your work deeply is that, at some point, the work you do will change, and you have to adjust along with it.
I realized today that, after this week, I have four weeks left of my internship. I’m working to soak it all in, knowing that I will move on to something different in a different place and with different people. I am thankful for the ways in which I have been able to love and be loved deeply this year…for the many things I’ve learned along the way…and for becoming a better person and practitioner for it.
But in about four weeks, I’mma need my own box (or three) of tissue.
