Relationships end, people move on, some things seem unfair, and so forth. That's life. Not every relationship is meant to last a lifetime, but it's totally possible to have more than one that does - if you feel you must subscribe to some kind of hierarchy and consider someone a "secondary," why would you assume that they would automatically be a temporary person in your life?

Live each day like it's your last and get the most out of it. There is no worse thing to waste than your time. Treat the people you love with respect, kindness, and appreciation every single moment, whether they will stick around or not, and you can have a rich life, full of love and loving actions.
