  • It's funny how you think someone will be in your life forever but they end up fading out for this reason or that. It's even funnier when the person you least expect sticks around and surprises you.

    I think some of these people who fade out were stepping stones for new people or new experiences. Help to get you through something at that time and to help you grow.
