Life is just a series of choices you make. Some may lead to scented gardens and some may lead to rusted corners.
But does regret open the key to the next door?
I have learned it the hard way. When you sit and contemplate about all the choices you have ever made and burn a hole in your heart, cursing yourself for the all the bad decisions, you are just wasting your precious life. I used to be one of those people who can sit for hours together and sulk about life being unfair *hangs head in shame*. But now, I feel revived. I feel my choices offer me life lessons. My choices will set me a clearer path for a wiser tomorrow.
Regretting and holding on to your broken past will not get you anywhere. How long do you think binding yourself to a shattered piece of glass will fetch you comfort? No, masochism isn’t the answer. *gives you the death stare*
Does this mean you need to forget your past?
No, forgetting your past is in no way going to help you pace forth. Why forget, when you can learn from it? Also, trying to forget your past is only going to increase the pain of the “moving-on phase”. Removing such parts of your memory, will only increase the probability of you committing the same mistake again in the future. Instead, keep them. You don’t have to keep unlocking those memories. But, visit them when life puts you through a similar situation. Not only will you know which road to choose this time around, but also feel thankful that your past has after all turned out to be helpful!
It is going to be very hard when you see your choices destructing your life. They shatter the best kind of emotions. But trust me, it’s only momentary. In fact, every happiness this moment shatters is going to construct itself into a road to a new kind of happiness in the future.
I learnt from my choices, and I want the same for you. My words are just mere alphabets put together to make some meaning. But your actions after reading these strings of words will make you realize what I am talking about.
You may consider yourself a regular, living a life as bland as milk. But the adjective regular has a horizon of meaning in each one of our lives. Chaotic as it may seem, life has a lot to offer and take. Don’t fret it. Learn from it.
These are just my opinions on the obstacles life throws at us. I am just laying down my thoughts for you to seek and think about. You may have a completely different perspective about this topic than I do. You may even find everything I just said completely absurd and nonsensical. But that very difference is life. These perspectives and choices are crucial blocks of our character. The roads you have taken may or may not coincide with mine, but that doesn’t mean one of us chose the wrong path. We are leading a life, which without our knowledge has a lot to teach. And once we realize what a great teacher life is, damn the journey is going to be an adrenaline filled adventure!
I am going to pause my flow of consciousness for now… *children screaming yay*
