why is it that when you are trying to forget someone or something or a few old memories an object/picture from the past triggers a series of recollections that make the erasing process more difficult. Why is it so difficult to completely forgive and forget ?
Signs. They are all around us. They manifest in strange forms. But, do we heed them ? We may be neck deep into a project/vocation/relationship but are never really convinced that the end result is going to be fruitful. yet, we try to hold on. This very stubborn attitude of the human species is a defining characteristic of our race. Like they say GOD has already written the future but he has given us humans a valuable gift called ‘will power’ in order to change the so called pre-destined future. This will power is the root cause of all the angst in the pangst. Moving on/getting over is difficult. A root canal for the heart is always painful. But we gotta try. We gotta survive.
So my dear friend thee who art grieving over thine ruptured heart singing My Tuscaloosa Heart I just have to tell you this : If people from your past din’t make it to your future then there is only one reason for that. They were never meant to be there in the first place.
“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed…It feels an impulsion…this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.” -Richard Bach
There are sunny days ahead. This weather of misery and sorrow that engulfs you is temporary. There are many more greener pastures out there. A bend in the road doesn’t mean an end in the road.
Amen and God Bless.
p.s. forgetting sarah marshall is a great film on how to handle post break-up traumatic stress.
