The post read: “In life, you will fall out with people that you never thought you would.

“Get betrayed by people you trusted with all of your heart. Get used by people you would do anything for. But life also has a beautiful side to it.

In life, you will fall out with people that you never thought you would. Get betrayed by people you trusted with all of your heart.

“You will get loved by someone you never thought you would have. Form new friendships with people that will establish more meaningful and stronger relationships. And overcome things you never thought you would get over.

“We all have chapters that end with people at some point in life. But take pride in knowing that the very best part of your book is still being written.”
