Just got hit by a wave of regret today…
You know that feeling how you think you have it bad…but then you lose someone or something that had always been by your side and you regret taking them/that thing for granted? It could be a relationship, a beloved piece of clothing, or a job.
Maybe your mind might play tricks on you by making it seem better than it was, you remember all the good times and things that that they/it gave to you, but you forgot the way the relationship didn’t work, the item was not working as well as it once did, or the reasons why you left that job in the first place.
Alas, every end of something great can only open the door for things that are even greater.
You will meet someone or encounter something new that will blow your mind away… I guess in order to make room and time for something new, the old has to pass by.
But, it’s okay to feel sad, it’s okay to mourn for what you once had and lost. You don’t need to ‘cheer up’ or ‘look on the brighter side of things’…Because otherwise, you miss out on learning more valuable lessons.
Lessons about learning to take care of things more properly in the future, of not taking relationships or people for granted, and treasuring what is important to you most.
So, take your time, feel the regret, sadness, and loneliness. Embrace it. Fully. Let it do all it wants to. And then, embrace the next new thing.
