It happens like this. One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else- closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps because this person carries an angel within them- one sent to you for some higher purpose, to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do us trust in them- even if they come hand in hand with and suffering- the reason for their presence will become clear in due time. 
Though here is a word of warning- you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn't to save you but to show you how to save yourself.  And once this is fulfilled, the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.
But letting people in and trusting them is quite challenging for me. Life has taught us to be skeptical about everyone's intentions and motives, but once I trust someone, he or she has my complete trust. Then you're changed a little. This person takes away parts of your willingness to let other people in. He or she also took parts of the trust you have for yourself. Those intangible things will never come back.

pretty well said, hmmmmm. I read those over somewhere btw.

       Growing up means learning what life is. When you’re little, you have a set of ideals, standards, criteria, plans, outlooks, and you think that you have to sit around and wait for them to happen to you and then life will work. But life isn’t like that, for anybody; you can’t fall in love with a standard, you have to fall in love with a person. You can’t live in a criteria, you have to live your life. You can’t wait for your plans to materialize, because they may never materialize the way you think they will. You can’t wait to watch your ideals and standards walk up to you, because you can’t know what’s yours until you have it. I always say, always take the first chance in case you never get a second one, but growing up takes that even one step further, growing up means that you have to hold on to what you have, when you have it, because what you have- that’s yours- and all the ideals and criteria you have set in your head, those aren’t yours, because those haven’t happened to you.

You’ll not only miss the memories you do have, the person you did know, but you will also miss the memories you could have had, the person they would have become. You’ll miss the uncertainty of having them here, the wide-open future of them. We never miss the future until it’s taken away.
You find yourself wondering what you’d say to them if you only had one more conversation. You build these grandiose monologues in your mind, where you tell them how much you love them, how much they built you into the human being you are today, and how beautiful it was to have known them. The truth is, though, despite all these beautiful things you could say, you know you’d be fully satisfied with just a simple hello.
