We all want to leave bad things behind. I’ve heard from many who said that 2016 has been full of cuts and bruises – and perhaps a whole lot more to some. Of course, nobody wants to take them here today.
Perhaps you began this year with unexpected things. You’ve just let go of your loved one(s)…and realise that you don’t get to share another year with them anymore. Perhaps you’ve also decided to stop caring, stop expecting so much from those who actually still mean so much to you but no longer deserve your honesty.
Maybe you’re still badly bruised in the ego from your past fling or relationship. You’re not ready to start over with someone new, yet they keep urging you to have faith. “Maybe the next one will treat you much better than the previous one.” Whatever you choose, a friend says that retaliation never gets you anywhere – no matter how much they’ve hurt you before.
Still, you don’t have to push yourself if you’re still afraid and not ready. It’s never easy, but perhaps it won’t be so bad if you give another a chance to love you better – even more than you do yourself.
Perhaps you’ve been on your own most of the time, but are now ready to share the same space with another soul like they are with you. A new chapter, a new adventure. Two main characters in the same plot will definitely make the story more interesting.
Where will you two go together? May the journey lead you to something better. After all, it’s not the place – but the one you’re with, hopefully for the rest of your lives.
Perhaps we’ll get to see each other more in the next chapters, perhaps not for a while. Maybe we’ll be reunited in other sequels, hopefully with much better circumstances.
There never is anything wrong with hoping for the best, even after certain endings…
