Episode 1

It’s a funny world.

And sad too.

You learn lots of things, and at every turn in life, you un-learn them. You get burned yet you walk a similar path, with maybe a different trim, and walk through the blazing agony again.

Long ago, I learned to trust my instincts and keep a check on my over-emotional heart. More than 3 years ago, I went through a phase where my trust and affection were blown to smithereens, by the most un-suspecting of souls. I could sense the vibe since day 1 but I let pity and sympathy over-ride my instinctive directives. And thus, the heartbreak.

And today, it’s like déjà vu. I want to undo it all. I want to retrace my steps and be where I started from. And take a different path. Maintain distance. Not whisper secrets with utmost confidence. Not listen to the darkest truths being voiced by the other. But then, I wonder, would I really take a different path? Would I be able to defy “the” pull and allow my instincts to direct me? For some reason, I don’t think so.

Sometimes, it’s confusing. Known to be always on guard yet such painful scars?

Maybe someday it will change.

If I could, I would-let go.

Atleast you had the fun and games break everyone needs after finishing off with a serious task and before starting a new one 🙂

  2. Most of the time you never get what you want but life goes like that, with many ups and downs. All you have to do is to face the life whenever it gets hard. I hope you feel better soon. In the meantime, try not to isolate yourself. It is tempting to hide away when you feel depressing but friends are the best people to help you feel glad again.
