“One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can’t change”
We’ve all got those memories, people, times, experiences that we can’t seem to let go of. Often, we might find ourselves thinking about those things and the thoughts always linger with us, somewhere there at the back of our heads, just waiting for the right time to remind you. I’m writing this post because I feel like that right now. The thought of something that once held significance in my life and is no longer there but will always be somewhere in my mind. I just feel like I’m one of those people who get SO attached, like if I love you, you’ll know and it honestly changes my life so much. There’s so many memories and people that I remember and miss. The good and the bad.
It’s understanding why you’d miss the good but why the bad? It’s a shame because there were people I once knew, and now it feels like nothing. Literally, nothing. It’s one of life’s many things that we have to grow to understand but sometimes, no matter how hard you tell yourself to move on and live life, you’ll always think about those things. It upsets me sometimes looking at the changes in my life. Ones that really were important to me that now mean absolutely nothing. Why? I wish I could move on from these thoughts. It’s the thoughts that drive you insane. Metaphorically of course. Like sometimes, I think about something that happened which was so great. A good memory. It makes me sad and I would love to go back to that day just to re-feel and experience those 24 hours all over again. Sometimes, I laugh at how silly I can be for thinking I had it all figured out but I didn’t. You never can with life because you never know what’s to come and what’s to go.
I look at some people, whether I know them now or if I used to and question, ‘What happened?’ I know there’s a difference in ‘changing’ and ‘growing up’ but when you’ve known them so well, it kills all the expectations that you really had. I want to thank these times and people because for these, I’ve learnt so many things. If I don’t mean anything to you, then likewise. No shade, no tea. Just honesty, because I like keeping it real.
I’m always forever appreciative of everyone and everything that I have in my life. I’m happy that from these thoughts and experiences, I’ve learnt so many lessons and I’ve become more independent. I will continue to strive for the best. Treat people with respect. I will try to live a better life, not upset anyone and continue to pray to God for giving me life. Life is precious and I know myself. I know what I want from life, what I want to do and what I want to achieve. I want to be around ambitious, hardworking people. I want good vibes, I want people with energy and passion for success. These people, are the kinds of people who drive me to do better, help me realise what’s right and wrong. I want to make my parents proud, I want to give back to all those who’ve always supported me and continue to love and pray.
