To The One Who Was Never Mine

The day I learned not to bother about whatever was happening with you was the day I realized, that my heart is brave to strike off that one thing which I had kept on the highest pedestal since so long. That day I accepted that what’s not meant to happen, no matter how hard I try, no matter how far I run, will not happen. And practically speaking, there is no loss in losing what was never yours, there is no defeat in stepping outside, empty-handed, there is no guilt in giving up on something which never held on to you.

That day I understood that my heart isn’t a graveyard of your memories, where I had buried each one of them chronologically. My heart is certainly not a garden of remembrance where you visit once in a blue moon to offer your condolences to my fallen hopes.

The day your words managed to pierce through the walls of my delicate heart, which were once filled with love, only for you; that day itself you managed to earn my ignorance. From that day itself, your existence never really mattered to me, anymore. So, congrats you have permanently destroyed a perpetual source of love. You have been successful in pushing away a pair of palms that, whenever folded, prayed for you. You successfully lost each and every wish that was meant only for you.

But, forget not that everything, good or bad, eventually comes to an end. So will this, one day. For now, I am letting it burn, our unfinished book, I don’t remember what page number were we at, I don’t remember what chapter had I started before you tore it apart. Neither do I want to remember. I just hope you have a happy and a successful life.

Why Not?

So today is the time for “ Why Not” in special demand of my cutest reader and my colleague who actually honors all of my ridiculous ideas that I usually don’t post because I say it to myself “Why would people actually read this?”, and then I quite honestly justify that they wouldn’t, so I do not post and share it.

There are times in life when your mind is fully of shitty thoughts and ideas, basically the ones you simply do not want to think about. But why not? You have got to deal with your own mess you like it or not. Think of it and clear your head of it. I came across a very powerful line lately on the Reddit thread which says that – “Do not let people live in your head rent-free.” When you feel you are stuck or life becomes too much to handle, this is the best advise to deal with life. Think of it this way – Imagine that you are at the station, on the platform and unhelpful thoughts are the trains that pass by you. It is important for you to acknowledge that you do not necessarily need to get into every train. Simply take a look and let them pass. Same is the case with thoughts!

Why not follow your passion instead? Keep yourself consumed to keep bad thoughts astray. Do all that you want to do. You just have one life. One small life which may end any moment. So why not do all that you ever wanted to! It’s better to live life with no regrets and accept that you should give life one chance, give yourself a try. Life finds wonderful ways to send us messages if we are open to them. Why not be open to those and cherish each moment!
