Sometimes, holding hands is enough, sometimes holding on by a pinky is enough, but sometimes holding on does more damage than good. I was going for a casual walk today when I saw a couple holding hands, I saw some people walking together, another guy was arguing with his girl, some girl was kissing her boyfriend and it made we wonder, are these people happy? Because as many of us would like to believe that relationships will withstand the test of time, the reality is that some end for one reason or another. It’s so sad to see something that’s so strong, something that’s so tight, just lose its grip. Like seeing a couple holding hands, and then seeing them so far away from each other the week after, it makes me wonder. What happened in between that time that made them just change their mind about each other? Where is the love, what is ever there?
I think we sometimes get so caught up in things that we lose sight, we don’t see anything that is ahead of us. And when that happens, it makes it impossible to move forward when things are over. I think we have to get the past and sometimes the present behind us in order to see what is ahead of us. Heartbreak is something we all experience, it’s a part of life. Sometimes in life, we think that the only way to get rid of problems or make them less painful is to ignore them and pretend like they’re not even there and that’s worse. We tend to hide behind our emotions instead of facing them. When we do that we bottle up all of these feelings of sadness, all the negative thoughts, all the pain, and sooner or later these problems will begin to spread inside of us. We have to set them free and let go of that grip. For some holding hands is enough, and for some holding on by a pinky just isn’t. <3
