What makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever, what makes it precious is that it ends. I knew that more than ever. But now I believe some former attachments never go by. One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Change is never easy. I fight to hold on and I fight to let go somewhat in this manner:
The shoes need to be thrown away. It is torn from places and it hurts my sole whenever I wear them. But I don’t have the heart to part from them. It is something which I am used to. It is comfortable. It is something that I am familiar with. But I have to let it go. It is no longer the best. I can’t keep it just because I am scared to try something new. Probably the new ones will be better. But they are still packed in a box and kept away and I am sitting with the old pair in my hands. I hate getting rid of the old but life has taught me that nothing is forever. It is just something we humans say to keep others happy. I got up and threw it in the bin standing beside me.
But after an hour or so I picked it up and wore it again to repeat the same thing tomorrow. I fight to hold on and i fight to let go.
