Sometimes You Need To Let Go..

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.

The Bitter Sweet Unrequited Love

Not all in the world are blessed to love and be loved. Are they? Even if they are, only a few are lucky enough to be loved by someone they love the most. I’ve seen many lovey-dovey teen couples, married ones, long-distant couples, couples that always fight yet stay together, friends who turned lovers…,the list is endless. I always believed that friendship and love requires two people who love and care for each other.

But I realized quite recently, that to love and be loved are two different things and it cannot and need not always happen with the same person.

Can love be bitter yet sweet? Oh yes, ask the unrequited ones.

Red heart tree

That one person, no matter what they do, you tend to stay with them, like them, protect them and love them forever. Your heart hurts every time you see them and it hurts even more when you don’t see them at all. Just a simple text can brighten your day, a little hi would give you butterflies…but the moment you realize that your emotions are not reciprocated and that they are not yours forever; the heavy hollow feeling sinks in and the poor little heart cringes in pain.. It reminds me of Shakespeare’s quote:

“Love is the most beautiful of dreams and the worst of nightmares.”

Everybody, except that one person knows how you feel. Why can’t they see it? Even if your brain says “it is impossible you dumbo, let it go!” your heart says “oh no, please don’t”. People around you would say you are pathetic, helpless, desperate and give you endless advice on how to make a move or how to move on but they can never understand the pain of confronting, letting go and moving on. We are humans, not machines to delete a person and erase all the feelings instantly. But the truth is, letting go is hard, holding on to the same is even harder. It would take time., but yes, someday you will learn to live with it, carry it forward and move on.

Someday you will figure it out and get it all sorted. Until then.. treasure the dreams, give your best.. for all you have is one life and it has to go on.. 🙂
