Moving on, Starting over.

5 08 2007

 

 

Inspired from personal experiences.

I hate how people cling to other people, things or memories and avoid starting anything new, or giving anything else a shot.  One thing I truly love about myself is that nothing is easier for me than throwing something behind my back and starting over if that specific thing turns into a hopeless case or causes me a lot of unnecessary headache (Insert nods from angels one and two).

Moving on is not about avoiding to talk about/to  something/someone ,it is not about avoiding to do things or avoiding to go back to things that remind you of someone/something, it is the ability of staring everything that reminds you of what you’re trying to forget in the eye and not feeling a single thing.

A lot of people mistake being able to stay away from a thing or a person for moving on, when in fact the only thing that comes out of avoiding situations is putting your feelings to sleep for a while only to realize out of a sudden that they did not vanish but on the contrary, they grew deeper.

Moving on is being able to look back on what was, smile and think how thankful you are for what is  , becoming obsessed is looking back on what was , feeling bitter and angry and assuring yourself that what was is not over yet until you say it is.

Nothing is the end of the world except for THE end of the world, what seems like a tragedy today might become an embarrassing  memory later on that you could look back on and punch yourself in the face for. Instead of focusing on how hard it would be to move on and start something new just keep one thing in mind; things change, people change, they move on, nothing stays the same forever and you don’t always get your way, if something is destined to happen it will without all the constant whining and the desperate attempts to make it happen as soon as possible, and regardless of who disapproves of it, and if something is not destined to happen it won’t, even if the whole world gathered to make it happen.

Moving on might be much easier said than done. Just wait till you find something that is truly worth it and it will be really hard to let go.
Even when you do, it’s really hard sometimes to escape the guilt that is associated with it ..
I’ve moved on several times in my life, and no matter what I do, the guilt catches up with me. I guess because deep inside I’m a wussy soft romantic, despite my exterior hard shell

Well, what’s said above is theoretically true. But human feelings is way too complicated, and it varies significantly from each individual, and depends highly on the situation.

Sometimes we must avoid people, things, or even a situation for a while , just to be able to look at it and smile. Not everybody can rationalize things and deal with them instantly, some people need time away. While others are stronger. and It depends on the situation it self.

I believe everybody have the gift of moving on, but not everybody is aware of this gift.

I myself need sometime away, just to be able to handle reality. But I know I’ll move on eventually. And again, It depends on the situation.

Qwaider and Abed: Everything is easier said than done. If something isn’t worth it then getting it out of your system and life is called getting rid of an extra burden, moving on is all about letting go of something that is worth it, something that is dear to you and is or once was a big part of your life. This is not about theories, this is about personal experiences, thoughts and beliefs, they surely do not apply to everyone, and like Abed said, some people are just stronger than others, emotionally wise, I guess I’m a toughy, unlike Qwaider😛

Anyway, everyone can agree to the fact that moving on is hard, and you lose a part of yourself in the process in the sense that when another similar thing comes your way you treat it differently than the first time, you become less tolerant ad more cautious, I guess.
