Life is just a collection of memories made by the collaboration of people who cross paths with us during the journey. Of people who are total strangers, best friends, family and acquaintances. Some remain by our side through the crests and troughs, some are mere passing clouds while some are merciless invincible hurricanes, that uproot every last thing we have and take them along with them…leaving behind nothing.
The ones who stay by our side no matter what happens are our blessing. But what can we do about the rest of the people?
Should we run behind them, chase them and beg them to stay? Is it possible? Even if it were possible, is it worth?
What about those who misunderstand us? What about those who don’t care how we feel no matter how many times we try our best to explain ourselves?
Should we try to make them understand? Do we really need to explain ourselves? Is it worth all the pain and effort??
Last but not the least, what about those who deceive us? The ones we trusted blindly but left us shattered and heart broken? Should we be angry with them forever?
Does anger serve any purpose? Especially when the person has already left, does it impact anyone else other than ourselves? Or, should we go for a revenge?
Does revenge put the broken pieces of our heart back together and heal the scars?
It might be difficult to digest. It might be heavy on the chest, choking the throat, aching the heart and straining the eyes from breaking into a flood of tears… But the best thing we could do for ourselves is to let go..
Let go of the people who left and keep their memories,
While letting go of the bad memories and keeping the good ones.
Let go of all the pain and keep the joy.
Because you deserve happiness. You deserve to live a peaceful life.
Let go.. Move on.
Be Kind to everyone. Be kind to yourself too.
