This is how I’m living my life now. Sometimes we try to hold on to the past as if it’s important. As if it holds some sort of meaning. But it doesn’t. People in our past are there for a reason. While there may have been good moments and bad moments, those moments have already been lived. Those moments cannot be repeated. Those moments should be tucked away as remnants of who we were. What we were.
I hate when someone from my past contacts me to say hello. I’ve always hated that. Here I am, enjoying the life I’ve worked hard to create for myself, and there they go, trying to come back into my life. Trying to make me think about them. Invading my mind with thoughts from the past. With what ifs. No one has time for that.
I have come to the conclusion that it is best to leave the past in the past. Sometimes you must let go of people, so that you can hold on to other more important people. Right now I am holding on to a wonderful husband and a beautiful baby boy. I only have two hands. I refuse to let go of either of them to grab hold of someone from the past.
So, if you’ve ever known me, and we don’t talk anymore, let’s keep it that way. If you haven’t heard from me in years, then there’s no reason to contact me now.
