when we are cubs,
we usually have one main emotion that pushes us. joy.
joy is what made us bright eyed and bushy tailed to be alive.
we see the world as one big adventure.
with the help of our parents,
we learn how to use joy to experience love.
as we grow however,
and shit happens throughout our lives,
we get introduced to the different emotions within us…
There comes a time when you realize “this thing we have” is over.
There are many ways to tell:
Looking at the other person and realizing they don’t make you smile anymore. Seeing every flaw and negative thing they do. That face you once loved starts to bother you. The thought of their existence makes your blood pressure start to rise.
So, why do we hold on?
Why do we still keep that grasp on someone that we know we should be letting go of?
Why do we allow them to cause us pain, when they are to selfish an self absorbed to realize?
I started to wonder…
Why do we make it so hard to let go,
when the other person is already gone?
