This is true guys. So true.
This is a statement that NEEDS to be fucking clarified:
You meet a lot of people who will not be a part of the rest of your life.
This does not mean that they’re ‘temporary people’
It means that in the story you’re the protagonist of, they’re minor characters who show up for a few episodes and then never again.
THEY ARE STILL THE PROTAGONISTS OF OTHER STORIES THAT YOU ARE NOT IN.
This kind of statement is dangerously dehumanizing.
