The ability to pick words and paint a picture to represent our thoughts, our perception of a certain event, everything, that goes on inside our mind. Sharing parts of our life with others is in itself magical. Nothing can compare to it... In fact, I am sure everyone of us can recall this incredible experience, that became even better once we were able to tell someone close to us about what happened. For some reason god, the universe or whatever you choose to believe in, decided to give us this gift, that adds to our happiness and lessens our agony, once we choose to use it. It can heal pain and remove scars from the past, that no medicine in the world would be able to. It is just as if we are all painting a picture with our words. Well, I guess to some degree all of us can be called artists.
However, on this journey called life we also get to see the other side of the coin. Nothing is just one sided. Just like there is night and day, summer and winter, life and death, sharing beautiful experiences has also it's opposite and I am sure all of you got to realize this at some point. It comes in all kind of forms, be they break ups, lost opportunities, or the passing of a loved one. Although it's painful, we learn to come to terms with these conditions and accept them as part of reality.
Just like these incidents are part of life, so are our mistakes and actions, that once made, can never be undone. Try to go back in your mind and remember the last time you couldn't sleep at night, because of someone else. Remember the last time you got so angry and took an action, that filled you with regret afterward. And what happened the last time you interpreted something wrong and ended a relationship based on this? I am sure many of us have made decisions and took actions, that we are not proud of. Rather we hope deep inside to go back in time and change the facts, change what happened, change the past...
However thinking about how things might have been, how much better we could feel about ourselves and how much pain we could have saved our loved ones, does nothing at all. It's just like putting salt on our wound, adding to the pain and holding on to things, that are no longer within our reach. This condition wouldn't be a problem, would it only be limited to one or two individuals. But the reality is: All of us have this in common. And just like everyone else, I am asking myself: Is there any solution for this out there?
