They say that if you love someone, you have to set him free. If he comes back, he’s yours. If he doesn’t, he never was.
And another one: they say that we also need to set ourselves free from all the worries and pains we’ve went through because of loving, to free ourselves from the burden, to make everything look and seem lighter.
Another truth? Maybe.
One can always feel pain but it’s often not a question of how much pain we feel, but more of how much joy we feel.
You see, we have similar case in points here, just different views because it is always a matter of perspective.
Also, one can never define the gravity of holding on and letting go, and one can never wholly say that holding on is easier, nor vice versa. We can only take so much. And if it’s already too much to bear, letting go could be a better, maybe even the best, option.
As long as we’re living in the present and take everything as it is, as a gift, and as a blessing, then maybe, we can never go wrong. But in case we go wrong, just think of it this way: this has once made me happy, so why would I prolong my agony?
So smile. Every day is a gift. At least that’s what they say, and that’s what I would like to believe, too.
But would you like to believe it, too?
