5. RIP Cory and Appreciation.
I'm sure most of you know of Cory Monteith and that he has recently passed away. I feel like people disrespect him a lot for dying due to drugs, but that is nothing compared to what an amazing idol he was. There was an episode of Glee that was a tribute to him and as a glee fan, I can say that this was definitely one of my favourite episodes.
It really got me thinking. The Glee cast have had to lose Cory, their friend, and that must be so hard. Like, really, so freaking hard. People try to romanticize death and act like it's sad for all these deep reasons, but really, it's sad because they're gone. They have this one life and it's over and that's permanent. They're not coming back and there's something about permanency that just terrifies me to be honest and that's why I'm so upset about Cory, because he had his life and it ended too soon.
It also got me thinking about if I lost my friends and I couldn't do it. Just the thought of any of them being gone and not coming back is enough to make me cry (I don't cry as much as it sounds like I do, I swear). I have to remind myself not to take them for granted because they could be gone in the blink of an eye.
I'm sure you all probably have somebody like this in your life and by 'like this' I mean what I'm about to explain. Whether it's a friend or a sibling or a parent, you probably have somebody that you love to death but sometimes you forget that through annoyance. They probably just really annoy you sometimes and you still love them but you forget to like them too. You forget what made you love them in the first place. I know I certainly have people like this in my life and it's not something to feel guilty about, but just try and remember how you first met or if it's family then try and remember all the positives about them. It will put everything into perspective. Just remember, nothing is guaranteed. You want to spend as much time being positive with them as possible.
I don't really know what the point of this chapter was. I don't really live well inside my own head, I need to talk to people or write to you guys otherwise it just gets all muddled up and confusing haha. Also, I just wanted my friends (and you) to know that I don't take you for granted and that you really do make me feel better. And also, you reading, whoever you may be, just appreciate everybody you love because they could just be gone one day.
R.I.P Cory. I really don't know how to add to that. Just really, rest in peace.
