Letting Go Helps
Emotions are really hard to explain. The ones who are able to express their deepest desires and feelings are some how better off than those who can’t.
It is a terrible feeling which grips you when one of your closest ones has to go, some where far away,may be forever. You have so much to talk about, and yet you have so little time. You just don’t have enough time to thank that person for all the wonderful things he/she has done to you, for you.
The sands of time escape faster when you try and tighten your grip.
The news reached me late at night when I was about to retire.I had had a bad day and seeing the chat window pop-up was absolutely not welcoming to me. Reluctantly, I opened the message to find that message – A friend of mine was going away, possibly for life. I asked for the relevant details and in a matter-of-factly way, switched off.
I wish our minds could be shut - off just like that. But alas! I am so damn wrong.
The sadness of losing that friend was too overwhelming for me to think about the good ol’ days.I was partly angered, partly saddened. Being an analytical person has its own sweet disadvantages. I just couldn’t see the rationality behind this person’s move.
I wanted to tighten the grip and yet not lose a speck of sand in the process.
But wisdom caught the better of me just before dawn.

The trouble with today’s world is that many of us tend to judge a situation from the point of view of either an “I” or a “you”. Try and sit back and think some times – Will your loved one be able to carry on the journey without you?
Let us face this simple fact– No one stays with us forever. The real point of love is to help someone grow irrespective of us being or for that matter, NOT being there anymore.
Sometimes, throwing someone both ends of the rope does help. But this shouldn’t be the case when they aren’t ready.
There is/are a few who make you their world. With your ups and downs, they are with you.While this may seem like a dream-come-true scenario for any of us, it may not be like that way, forever.
Never think how well you are with that person around you. Think how well that person will be without you.
