• Awesome 💎
To make a comeback, I wanted a post that could voice my past months, the present and a sense of unusual gratitude I owe. Ready for a lengthy caption? It does look like a warning, I believe. 😉
To the cruel reality of “time” I have no courage to say anything but a “thank you”. And to fight this pitched battle I think I have been in training for years, although there is no self-appreciation in it that I may award myself for. The time before, past 8 months and the present, none was or is in my control. I can only be grateful for then and now, for making me the rigid purposive being, yet remain sensitive to the core.
Fight between a death and an on-going life can’t be won, it does not kill you but makes you stronger. I have been fighting one. And I understood, time defines what you turn out to be; a monster, a responsible adult or a piece of flesh and bones. I think, for the kind of progress so far; I turned out “Awesome”. ♥️ In all these times, there were people who stood by my side and I turned to them a million times, I had always been appreciative to those blessed and blissful souls. But I never got a chance to thank the ones who chose to leave.
Many times, there are such chains you love to wear, they never suffocated you, they have been engraved in you. And you don’t want to lose them. But then they start to corrode. They rust on their own and begin to scar you. You adore them so much; you keep bearing the wounds until the chain breaks in pieces and falls off on its own. The connection you have is torn but there is no demise to your fondness.
Such are those people; you must let them go and be grateful for everything they have been to you. Your adornment, your pride, your wishes were all with them; yet, once they go, you have to stand up for yourself. You cannot die for memories but reconstruct and enrich yourself that you may get another chance to make better memories. Those chains tie you into a bond, but I believe, they have shaped you so well that once they leave, you’re even stronger to function as a complete self. It’s a matter of where you tend to focus. ✔️ 💭 Continued in comments.
