Just let it go!

                   Humans are such blessed beings! Do we realise it? No, blessed not because of our  insightful  nature or the ability to think with our highly developed brains and sharp minds. Blessed,  because of our ability to express our feelings through words. Blessed, because of the sea of people around us, who care for us, love us, despite our differences; the relationships which warm our hearts and shower us with unconditional love.
            We have our families whom we rely on from the day we step into this world till the moment we bid it adieu. We have friends, who accept us for who we are, no judgements passed. Time and again, we come to realise,  that ultimately it is the people in our lives, who are our real treasure. Yes, money is a necessity, but  our loved ones are our real sources of strength and joy. Then, why is it, that at times, we hold on to some bitter words uttered by our dear ones in moments of passion, and carry those in our hearts for the rest of our lives?
          Why is it, that we find it so difficult to forgive, to let go, of something that happened eons ago? Why do we fall short of that little bit of love that requires us to forget that painful past and embrace our people to  live in a peaceful present? Why, for a moment, do we not empathise with those people, and try to understand why they said/did what they did? With our perceptive natures, is it too much to ask for?
         Life, as we know it, is uncertain; death , as we know it, is so certain. Then, why don’t we use this short, uncertain period that we have on this planet to live with love and happiness? Why those grudges, that bitterness, that jealousy, and  that angst towards people who  are an integral part of our world? Don’t they accept our shortcomings, and forgive our faults with their large hearts? Then, why can’t we do the same and move ahead, hand in hand, till death do us part?

  1. Sometimes the tough love or harsh words said by the people we love the most sting us more than the regular taunts by others – it takes us a while longer to get over that. But 'get over it', we should, indeed. Because it is often precious time lost in a valuable relationship, something we may regret down the line.
